On Amber Avenue at this Thursday’s home game against Hull FC, fans can find Ronnie the Rhino roaming around entertaining fans with the Heart Yorkshire Dance Team before kick off, as well as free face painting, balloon twisting and the Leeds Rhinos Foundation Skill Zone, for junior fans to put their passing skills to the test.

There will be food concessions and bars open on Amber Avenue for all fans to get their pre match feed before kick off and enjoy a pint or two, and there are toilet facilities under the cricket stand too.

Over on the other side of the stadium by the St Michael’s Lane turnstiles, fans who have tickets for the Carnegie Stand & Terrace, South Stand and North Stand can enjoy entertainment in ‘Blue Square’ this season.

In the Heart Family Zone in the Carnegie Café Bar, junior fans can enjoy free face painting and balloon twisting pre match, plus a kids disco with DJ Danny and a visit from a Rhinos first team player!

Leeds Rhinos 20 Hull FC 16

8th March 2018

By Phil Daly

A determined second half effort from the Rhinos held out Hull FC as the Champions got back to winning ways thanks to two tries each from Tom Briscoe and Kallum Watkins.

The Rhinos returned to Emerald Headingley for the first time this season ironically against the same opponent who had brought down the curtain on the old stadium in the Super League semi final back in September.

WP – Home MPU

With 2,000 fans back in the South Stand, another 2,500 in the new temporary North Stand, the Rhinos home certainly had a different feel come kick off but the Champions soon settled into their stride.

Fittingly it was the skipper Kallum Watkins who opened the scoring. A deft kick by Richie Myler was judged to perfection by Watkins, who collected before powering his way over the line. He converted his own try, despite slipping as he kicked it and his side led 6-0 after as many minutes.

The Rhinos extended their lead ten minutes later with Myler the creator again with a superbly timed floated pass wide to put Tom Briscoe over for the try against his former club.  Watkins hooked his conversion attempt wide from the touchline but his side led 10-0.

Briscoe thought he had scored a second try soon after when he went over in the corner but video referee Phil Bentham spotted the Hull defence had taken the winger into touch.

It was to prove to be a busy first half for Bentham with the action switching to the other end of the ground after that. A high kick was knocked down by Leeds before it was regathered by Jake Connor. He kicked ahead for Jack Logan but Josh Griffin was in an offside position and the score was ruled out.

Video referee Bentham did award Hull’s next effort when Dean Hadley chasd through to collect Marc Sneyd’s kick between the posts. Sneyd added the conversion to make it 10-6 with ten minutes to go until the break.

The Airlie Birds thought they had levelled the game with virtually the last play of the half when Josh Griffin went over however the video ref spotted an obstruction in midfield and it remained 10-6 at the break.

The Rhinos thought they had extended their lead at the start of the second half following an exciting passage of play. The home side opted to run on the final play with Joel Moon offloading to Ash Handley as he fell, who released Ryan Hall. Hall kicked back in field allowing Myler to hack ahead before Jamie Jones-Buchanan collected and forced his way over. However, the video referee adjudged Myler was offside when Hall kicked and the try was chalked off.

Leeds had to withstand a long period of Hull pressure after that as they visitors forced Leeds to drop out twice. Having weathered the storm, the Rhinos then responded with two quick fire tries. The first came from Watkins as he ran a great line to take Myler’s pass and slice through the Hull defence then Watkins turned provider with a short offload to Briscoe, who cut back across the defence to score his second try. Watkins hit the post with his first conversion attempt but was accurate from the South Stand touchline with his next effort to give his side a 20-6 lead with 19 minutes to go.

The Rhinos looked in control at that point and even when they conceded a second Hull try to Jordan Abdull it look like a consolation.

However, Hull set up a grandstand finish when Fetuli Talanoa was awarded a try by the video referee as quick ball released the winger down his touchline. Sneyd missed the latter conversion so it remained 20-16 with ten minutes to play.

The Rhinos had to produce some outstanding defence to keep Hull out and they did just that to get back to winning ways.
