Leeds Rhinos 22 Hull KR 18

12th August 2016

By Leeds Rhinos

Two second half tries from James Segeyaro helped secure a 22-18 win for Leeds against Hull KR.

Both sides came into the game on the back of big opening day wins against Championship sides in the Qualifiers and there was a sense that victory over a Super League rival would give the winner momentum in the competition.
 
The opening quarter was a tight contest with both teams looking to promote the ball at every opportunity. Leeds were looking dangerous every time that Liam Sutcliffe got his hands on the ball in attack, as the full back combined well with Danny McGuire on a number of occasions.  He then had to show his defensive prowess as he got under the huge frame of prop Adam Walker to deny him a  try as he powered over the line.
 
Leeds had to produce some strong goal line defence to deny Rovers and twice the visitors were intercepted, firstly by Ryan Hall and then Tom Briscoe on the other flank, as they tried to find a way to unlock the home defence.
 
Eventually it was Leeds who broke the deadlock and it was Kallum Watkins who carried on where he had left off at Featherstone. Having scored four tries in round one, who showed great confidence to head for the corner after good work by McGuire and Sutcliffe. The full back added the conversion to give his side a 6-0 lead after 28 minutes.

The lead was extended just before half time when Sutcliffe kicked a penalty from 35 metres out to make it 8-0 at half time.
 
Whereas both teams had shown admirable composure in the first half, the second half was a much more tenser affair with both teams coming up with a series of errors.
 
It was Hull KR who initially capitalised when Carl Ablett spilled a ball in midfield and James Donaldson picked up before galloping 30 metres to score. Mantellato added the conversion and then levelled the game with a penalty after 48 minutes.
 
Sutcliffe was soon able to edge his side back in front with another penalty but it did not settle the nerves.
 
Leeds had to spend long periods camped on their own line through a combination of spilled high balls and penalties but they showed tremendous determination to keep Rovers out.
 
The home side then looked to have struck a decisive blow. James Segeyaro produced a text book dummy half try to force his way over under immense pressure from the visitors defence. Sutcliffe added the conversion to make it 16-8.
 
Leeds then thought they had sealed the win when Segeyaro broke through on the next set. He released Jimmy Keinhorst, who cut back inside before passing to McGuire. The skipper looked to put Ryan Hall in for a try only for Minns to intercept but spill the ball as he fell to the ground. Hall picked up and had a gift of a try only for the touch judge to rule it out for a forward pass by McGuire.
 
Hull KR were then denied a try by the in goal judge after Kelly’s kick was knocked on however soon after Donaldson crashed over from short range between the posts.
 
Mantellato added the conversion and the game was back in the balance again with six minutes to go.
 
Leeds were gifted a lifeline immediately when Hull KR knocked on the kick off and from the next set Segeyaro stretched out one handed to score from dummy half. Sutcliffe crucially added the conversion to keep his side two scores in front.
 
Hull KR never gave in and scored in the final minute through Lawler but Leeds held on for the win.
