Leeds Rhinos 22 Huddersfield Giants 24

12th June 2014

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos lost their unbeaten home record in dramatic circumstances as they lost out to Huddersfield Giants at Headingley Carnegie despite tries from Kallum Watkins, Ben Jones-Bishop, Ryan Bailey and Liam Sutcliffe.

Nothing could separate these two teams when they met earlier in the season at the John Smith’s Stadium and this game continued in the same vein for long periods.

Leeds opened the scoring after just six minutes through Kallum Watkins after just six minutes as he took Brett Delaney’s pass before hopping back inside to dodge Danny Brough’s attempted tackle before racing over. Kevin Sinfield added the conversion to give his side the perfect start.

However, Huddersfield were able to get back into the game. Sinfield’s kick went out on the full and the Giants immediately struck when Wood managed to round Ryan Bailey and go over for the try. Brough added the conversion to level the score after nine minutes.

Both teams were guilty of losing too much ball after those early scores however the Rhinos finally struck back when Ben Jones-Bishop marked his return to the side with his eighth try of the season from a clever pass by Joel Moon. Once again Sinfield was on target to give his side a 12-6 after 18 minutes.

Leeds had to produce some outstanding defence to keep the Giants out after that with Delaney’s tackle on Patrick the highlight along with an entire set defended on the Leeds line. The Rhinos continued to defend their line well and managed to hold on to their lead until half time.

However, it was not long before the Giants took a strangle hold on the game. McGillvary crossed for a try shortly after the start of the second half and then two quick tries from Eorl Crabtree and Joe Wardle gave last season’s League Leaders a telling advantage at 24-12.

Leeds did not throw in the towel and they gave themselves a lifeline when Ryan Bailey was taken over the line by the Giants defence to score. Sinfield missed the conversion but then added a touchline conversion when Liam Sutcliffe was fastest to react to a knocked down Sinfield cross field kick and raced over to score in the corner.  That made it a two point ball game with everything to play for.

The Rhinos pressed hard but it seemed all was lost when Brough kicked his second 40:20 of the game with just two minutes to play. Leeds defended their line and then produced an incredible 90m attack with the last play of the game that appeared to end with a try for Tom Briscoe. However, the video referee adjudged that Briscoe had pushed Brough off the ball rather than having run shoulder to shoulder and the Giants held on for another victory over Leeds.
