Leeds Rhinos v Castleford Tigers Thursday 17th July kick off 8pm

11th July 2014

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos and Castleford Tigers meet in the biggest league clash between the two sides in a generation on Thursday 17th July at Headingley Carnegie.

The Tigers, under former Rhinos boss Daryl Powell, have become a major force in the First Utility Super League as they look to win the first league title in their history. They are also in the Tetley’s Challenge Cup semi final, where they face Widnes Vikings, meaning the men from the Mend-A-Hose Jungle are still looking at a potential league and cup double in 2014.

The battle with Castleford will be the Rhinos second home game in six days on the back of the clash with Hull KR on Friday night. They defeated Castleford 22-14 earlier in the season thanks to two tries apiece from Kallum Watkins and Ben Jones-Bishop and will be hoping for a repeat in this Thursday night thriller.

Gates open at 5pm with a host of family themed entertainment including face painters and bouncy castles. Curtain raiser entertainment will be provided by Leeds U19s v Castleford U19s kicking off at 5.30pm.

Leeds Rhinos 24 Castleford Tigers 24

17th July 2014

By Leeds Rhinos

Nothing could separate Leeds and Castleford at Headingley Carnegie as they drew 24-24 with Rhinos skipper Kevin Sinfield sent off for the first time in his career.

The Rhinos led 24-18 midway through the second half thanks to a second try from Carl Ablett but then had Sinfield sent off for violent conduct and Castleford finally wore down the 12 men of Leeds to grab an equaliser through Grant Millington. Jamie Peacock had a late drop goal attempt but a draw was a fair result from an absorbing contest.

Both teams knew that a win in this eagerly awaited derby clash would take them top of the First Utility Super League over night and it was the visitors who struck first. Leeds lost the ball in the first set and Castleford took no time in making their chance count as Michael Shenton reacted quickest to a knocked down kick and he picked up the loose ball to score.

Leeds looked like they had hit back when Paul Aiton crossed after picking up a loose ball but video referee Phil Bentham judged that it was Danny McGuire who knocked on rather than the Tigers Luke Dorn in the tackle and the score was chalked off.

The Rhinos did level the score when Tom Briscoe rose brilliantly to take McGuire’s cross field kick above Carney to score. Sinfield kicked his second goal to make it 6-6.

The seesaw nature of the game continued when Ryan Bailey crossed for a try with virtually his first touch after coming on. Ryan Hall and Joel Moon created the chance after their kept the ball alive on the last tackle before Hall threw the ball back infield and Bailey picked up to stride over the line. Sinfield made it 12-6.

It was the Tigers turn to hit back after that when former Rhino Weller Hauraki supported a Marc Sneyd break and powered his way over from close range. Sneyd was on target again to level the score. 

Ablett then crossed for his first try after he juggled the ball in goal before touching down. However, Castleford levelled before the break when Nathan Massey went from dummy half to score between the posts and level the score at 18-18 at half itme.
