Leeds Rhinos 20 Hull FC 0

15th July 2011

By Leeds Rhinos

Ryan Hall, Ben Jones-Bishop and Danny McGuire completed a hard earned win for the Leeds Rhinos over Hull FC at Headingley Carnegie.

Leeds Rhinos returned to Headingley Carnegie after a fortnight on the road for a massive clash with Hull FC, a week before the two sides meet again in the Carnegie Challenge Cup Quarter Final.

After three defeats in a row, the Rhinos were up against a Hull FC side who were in a great run of form and were without the injured pair of Brent Webb and Kylie Leuluai.

In previous meetings between the two sides, the odds were more in the home sides favour having won the previous eight meetings between the two sides including a big win at KC Stadium in Round Two of this year's Engage Super League.

The Rhinos started like a team with a point to prove and they put pressure on Hull from the off. Weller Hauraki was unfortunate not to get a try in the opening minutes when he blocked Sam Obst kick and ran through only for the ball to fail to bounce for him and he was tackled short of the line.

However, Leeds kept the ball and then had Carl Ablett held up over the line before a good kick from Sinfield was matched by the chase of Brett Delaney and Zak Hardaker to force the visitors to drop out. Unfortunately, Jamie Peacock knocked on from the drop out but the tempo had been set.

Ben Jones-Bishop, Zak Hardaker and Ryan Hall all combined well at the back for Leeds as they brought the ball forward for the Rhinos. After a period of poor control from both sides eventually the home side made the break through. A good run from Hall, shrugging off three attempted tackles set up the momentum before the same man appeared to be taken out without the ball as he jumped for a crossfield kick on the last tackle. However, when Craig Fitzgibbon knocked on two tackles later, the Rhinos sensed their chance to strike. Sinfield spotted space outwide and threw a high pass to Hall, who slid in from five metres out in the wet. Sinfield added the conversion to make it 6-0.

The Rhinos enjoyed the lion share of possession after that and were unfortunate to not get over for another score following good breaks by Hall, Hardaker and Jones-Buchanan.

The heavy rain before kick off had a major influence on the game as both teams spilled too much possession for their own liking. Leeds produced some great defence to keep the visitors out with the entire team working hard for one another to make up for any errors and keep the score at 6-0 at the break.

The second half brought the start of the rain again and the greasy conditions certainly had a big hand in how the game went in the third quarter with neither team able to keep hold of the ball long enough to build up any momentum.

The best chance the Rhinos had came when a knock on by Phelps gave them the ball deep in Hull territory. Sinfield earned a repeat set with a clever kick but from the next set McGuire lost his footing on the last tackle and the chance went begging.

Hull did have chances too but the Rhinos were more than a measure from them on defence with an impressive four man tackle on Phelps that saw the former Wigan man dragged into touch.

Jamie Peacock was guilty of two high tackles, one against his good friend Lee Radford, that put his side under presssure but once again the Rhinos pulled together as a team to shut the door on the visitors.

Leeds edged further in front when Lauaki was penalised for a high shot on Weller Hauraki ten metres from his own line. Sinfield opted to kick for goal and made it 8-0 after 69 minutes.

The Rhinos then struck a decisive blow two minutes later when McGuire kicked through towards the posts and Jones-Bishop beat Sinfield to touch the ball down. Sinfield converted to make it 14-0.

With time running out Ryan Hall was denied a second try by the video referee Ian Smith who pulled play back for crossing by Rob Burrow. However, the flying winger then set up the final score with the final play of the game. He got on the outside of his opposite man and raced down the wing before kicking ahead. Burrow dribbled the ball on before McGuire touched the ball down. Sinfield converted to make the final score 20-0.
