Leeds Rhinos 20 Catalan Dragons 24

20th September 2014

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos suffered a heart breaking last second defeat to Catalan Dragons to end their 2014 season and crush their hopes of returning to Old Trafford.

With both teams knowing that their season could end at the end of eighty minutes, it was not surprising that this game had a tense edge.

WP – Home MPU

The Rhinos enjoyed the better of the possession in the opening exchanges but Catalan were well drilled on defence and kept the Rhinos out despite forcing a number of goal line drop outs. The line was only finally broken after 18 minutes when a late tackle on Sinfield was spotted by the touch judge and referee Phil Bentham awarded a penalty 15 metres from the Catalan line. Two tackles later, Danny McGuire timed his pass to Carl Ablett to perfection and the England international broke through to score his twelfth try of the season. Sinfield added the conversion to make it 6-0.

Catalan then had their best spell of the game and created a number of dangerous of breaks with Zak Hardaker and Tom Briscoe having to make timely tackles to keep them out. However, they did managed to find a way through after 26 minutes when they broke through in midfield and NRL-bound Sam Williams was the man on the spot to take the inside ball and go over for the try. Thomas Bosc added the conversion to level the game.

Zeb Taia and Rob Burrow both went close for their respective teams after that but it was another late tackle on Sinfield that allowed the Rhinos to edge in front. Vincent Duport took Sinfield out in the air after he had kicked down field and, Zak Hardaker took over the kicking duties whilst the skipper received treatment to make it 8-6.

Leeds managed to increase their lead with the final play of the first half against the run of play. Catalan had a scrum 30m from their own line but when Escare lost control of the ball running across the face of the defence. Briscoe was quickest to react and hacked ahead, Watkins then kept the ball in play by drilling it back in field from the touchline and then beat the Catalan defender to kick ahead and collect his own kick and score. Sinfield added the conversion to make it 14-6 at the break.

That was never going to be a comfortable margin for the home side with so much at stake and so it proved as Catalan capitalised on errors from the home side to take the lead midway through the second half. Firstly, Zeb Taia out jumped Briscoe to catch a crossfield kick and score. Replays suggested he grounded the ball initially short but video referee Richard Silverwood judged momentum had then taken him over the line.

Then on the hour mark Louis Anderson powered his way over from close range after Hall had been judged to have knocked on when he went up for a high kick which he knocked down to Hardaker. Bosc converted both tries to put his side into an 18-14 lead.

Leeds knew they still had time to get back into the game but they could not afford to concede any more points. It took a sensational tackle from Hardaker on Escare, the two best full backs in the competition going head to head, to prevent a try for Dragons’ man.

The Rhinos finally hit the front again with ten minutes to going following a stunning passage of play as they kept the ball alive and eventually Sinfield put Jones-Buchanan through a gap to score. Sinfield converted the try to edge his side back in front but by just two points.

Both teams had chances after that but it was the Dragons who finished the game on the ascendency with three sets on the Rhinos line. The danger seemed to be dealt with when Hardaker battled hard to get away from his own line but then a pass from Sinfield to Briscoe went down and Williams dived on the loose ball. Despite claims for offside from the play the ball against Williams, the video referee allowed the try and Catalans had secured a famous victory. Bosc made sure of the win with the conversion from near the touchline to take the Dragons into the next stage of the Play Offs and end the Rhinos season.
