Leeds Rhinos 24 Warrington Wolves 16

9th August 2014

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos booked their place in the Tetley’s Challenge Cup Final thanks to two tries from Ryan Hall in the first half and one each for Joel Moon and Tom Briscoe after the break.

The Rhinos were expecting a tough battle from Tony Smith’s outfit but they were handed the initiative early on as the Wolves were forced into making uncharacteristic errors. Kevin Sinfield edged his side in front 2-0 with a penalty from in front of the posts after just three minutes.

For a long time in the first half the score remained that way. Leeds enjoyed nearly 80% of the possession but they could find no way through the Wolves defence. They finally made their dominance count when video referee Ben Thaler judged that Ryan Hall had brilliantly got the ball down one handed in the corner. Kevin Sinfield kicked the conversion from the touchline to give his side an 8-0 lead.

Warrington had their best spell of the half after that when they finally managed to get hold of territory in the Leeds half but Leeds defended manfully and then broke for a second try. The score was created by a brilliant piece of skill by Zak Hardaker. The full back took a kick on the full over his shoulder as he headed towards the touchline, before turning and breaking 50 metres up field. That gave Leeds the momentum they needed and Danny McGuire’s cut out pass put Hall in space and he finished in the corner. Sinfield was again on target and Leeds led 14-0.

The Rhinos then crucially came up with two pieces of brilliant goal line defence either side of half time to keep Warrington out. Firstly, Brett Delaney snuffed out a chance on the hooter before Hardaker and Carl Ablett worked together to prevent a certain try for Warrington as the Wolves created an initial four on one overlap out wide.

But Tony Smith’s men were not to be denied next time when a floated kick from Richie Myler found the outstretched hands of Monaghan who gladly put Bridge over. The conversion was missed and Leeds led by ten points.

The game then turned on a two crucial sets of six. Warrington got a set of six on the Leeds ten metre line and looked as if their pressure would bring another score. However, Myler’s kick on the last was pounced on by Kallum Watkins and Leeds set about moving down field with Jamie Peacock putting Rob Burrow through a gap and he offloaded to Sinfield. Joel Moon eventually took McGuire’s pass and went in for a third Rhinos try, which Sinfield failed to convert for the first time.

Warrington responded gamely and it took a stunning three-man defensive effort to stop Chris Hill from rumbling over, before Stefan Ratchford did make it across the line, picking up Ben Westwood’s offload to score. Bridge added the extras and it was 18-10 with a quarter left.

But Tony Smith's men were unable to follow that up with the further scores they needed and had to try to force their hand, which only ended in Myler's pass ending up in the hands of Tom Briscoe, who raced 60 metres to send his side to Wembley.

Westwood refused to give up the ghost and got a third Warrington try with five minutes left, but his side were well beaten by that stage.
