Leeds Rhinos 14 Bradford Bulls 20

1st August 2014

By Leeds Rhinos

A last gasp try from Lee Gaskell secured victory for Bradford Bulls despite second half tries from Brett Delaney and Luke Briscoe for the home side.

The Rhinos fielded a much changed side against the newly invigorated Bulls but it was the wet conditions that played the biggest part in the first half contest.

Both teams were guilty of handling errors, particularly in contact, as the ball shot out like the proverbial bar of soap on numerous occasions.

The visitors took the lead through former Rhino Danny Williams. The winger, who is on loan from Salford, challenged Tom Briscoe in the air for a Luke Gale cross field kick. Briscoe appeared to catch the ball but then had it knocked from his grasp. Williams then collected off the ground and went over. Gale missed the conversion but his side led 4-0 after five minutes.

The Rhinos enjoyed the majority of possession after that but could not make it count until a surging run from Brad Singleton from a goal line drop out gave them the momentum and Mitch Achurch then stepped his way passed one defender and through another to score. Hardaker drilled his conversion attempt from out wide so the scores remained level.

Leeds had a great chance to go in front when Josh Walters picked up a loose Bulls pass and raced 60 metres down field. The young man had the presence of mind to take the tackle and control the ball and earned his team a penalty when Bradford desperately try to slow play down and Adam Sidlow was sent to the sin bin.

Bradford defended their line manfully and despite all the pressure Leeds enjoyed they could not break them down. As well as the frustration of not scoring, Leeds then lost Ben Jones-Bishop after he suffered a leg injury collected a cross field kick.

The second half followed a similar pattern as both teams failed to capitalise on their chances. Bradford hit the front again when Gale made the most of a slip by Tom Briscoe, as he tried to slide to collect a grubber kick but it bounced off his knees and Gale picked up to score. He converted his own try to make it 10-4.

Leeds hit back once again. McGuire kicked ahead and was taken out by two defenders, however referee Roby played advantage and Brett Delaney dribbled the ball over the line to score. Hardaker added the conversion to level the score.

Gale put his side back in front with a penalty from close range before Leeds took the lead for the first time with eight minutes to go. A crossfield kick was flicked over his head by Liam Sutcliffe and Luke Briscoe was on hand to catch the ball and touch it down. Hardaker missed the conversion but Leeds led 14-12.

However, there was still time for another twist in the tale as Gale offloaded in the tackle to Lee Gaskell and he stepped back inside before racing through to score between the posts. Gale added the conversion and a last second penalty to give his side a 20-14 victory.
