Leeds Rhinos v Huddersfield Giants, Friday 4th March, kick off 8pm

28th February 2016

By Leeds Rhinos

One of the most intriguing battles in Super League in recent years begins again next Friday when Huddersfield Giants arrive at Headingley Carnegie in Round Four of the First Utility Super League.

The two sides have produced some absorbing contests in recent years including draws in 2014 and 2012 but none compared to last year's epic victory for Leeds at the John Smith's Stadium to win the League Leaders Shield and end a barren run for Leeds at the Giants home.

The Rhinos won both meetings at Headingley Carnegie last season, including a televised Cup clash, but with both teams struggling with early season injury problems, this is set to be another tight contest. 

Key for the Giants could be their skipper Danny Brough. He has scored points in his last 17 games against Leeds (15 for Huddersfield and 2 for Wakefield). His streak began in the Wildcats' 32-30 home defeat by the Rhinos on 10 July, 2009.

Leeds Rhinos 20 Huddersfield Giants 16

4th March 2016

By Leeds Rhinos

A late try from Jimmy Keinhorst helped edge the Rhinos to a first win of the season as they battled back for victory over Huddersfield Giants.

Both these sides came into the game looking for their first win of the season and snow and heavy rain throughout the day meant that hard work was always going to be the order of the day.
Leeds started brightly and took the game to Huddersfield. The home side opened the scoring after seven minutes when Zak Hardaker produced a great chip kick to the touchline which Ryan Hall leapt highest to get to and knock down to Joel Moon. Moon came round the back of Hall, juggled the ball before gathering to score. Jordan Lilley added the conversion from the touchline to give his side the perfect start.
However, the game failed to ignite after that with constant penalties against both teams preventing any sort of momentum developing.
The Giants were the next to strike after 17 minutes when Danny Brought threw a dummy from half back and shot through the gap to score behind the posts. Jamie Foster added the conversion to level the scores.
Both teams were suffering in the cold and wet conditions and they will have been disappointed with the amount of ball that went down. Eventually it was Huddersfield who managed to create the next scoring chance and they made the most of it. Hall came in field to take Brough’s crossfield kick but he misjudged the flight and it skimmed over his fingers into the waiting arms of Jermaine McGillvary who had a simple job to score. Foster added the conversion to give his side a 12-6 lead at half time.
Leeds were dealt a blow at half time when Joel Moon left the game with a ham string injury and the Rhinos would also lose Ash Handley later in the game with a foot injury.
The Rhinos battled hard after the break but they had to wait until the hour mark for the equalising score. Liam Sutcliffe made the most of a penalty for a high tackle on Burrow and the half back saw a half gap and powered his way through on the angle to score. Lilley added the conversion to level matters.
Leeds were then masters in their own downfall when Ryan Hall knocked on ten metres from his own line and the Giants punished them as they went over from short in.
The Rhinos however responded in true style to find a way back into the game. Lilley and Jimmy Keinhorst combined for the centre to stretch out with his fingertips to score. On the field referee Silverwood had said no try but the replays proved conclusive. Lilley then showed nerves of steel to convert from the South Stand touchline before kicking a late penalty to seal the win.
