Leeds Rhinos 22 Hull Sharks 18

16th April 1999

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds put the disappointment of last weeks shock defeat by Sheffield Eagles well behind them when the overcame Hull Sharks 22-18 in a close encounter at Headingley.

 The Rhinos got of to slow start and on five minutes a Rob Nolan try after he ran through a huge gap in the Leeds defence gave the Sharks lead. Iestyn Harris converted a couple of penalties to keep Leeds in touch before Roberts increased the Sharks lead with a penalty. Leroy Rivett levelled matters just before the break when he overlapped and crossed the whitewash in the corner to make it 8-8. The Rhinos must have got an earbashing from Coach Graham Murray at half time and came out with the bit between their teeth in the second period. but they were aided by indiscipline from the Sharks that cost them dear in this game. they had three men sinbinned in short order which handed the advantage to the Loiners. The Rhinos capitolised when Lee Jackson made a super break from dummy half to beat two tackles and drop over the gain line. Leeds then began to exert pressure with Darren Fleary the man of the match taking the ball up to great effect.

With ten minutes left to play the home team seemed to have put the matter beyond the Sharks with a great individual try from Rivett for his second of the game. He picked up a Sharks kick in his own half and then proceeded to beat two markers on the outside to cross the whitewash. With Iestyn converting both tries and an earlier penalty 22-8 seemed to be a score-line that was virtually impregnable, particularly with only ten minutes left to play. However, the Sharks kept battling away and got what looked like a consolation when Johan Windley scored after some poor tackling from the men in Blue and Amber. That try was converted but the game was not finished yet. With five minutes left to play Hull grabbed another. Leroy Rivett, who had a storming game in attack chased a Sharks kick back into this own half, he pounced on it but the ball squirmed under his grasp and Andy Purcell picked up to score in the corner and set up a nervy finish. The Rhinos managed to hang on and must have been relieved to hear the final hooter, with just four points separating the teams at 22-18
