Leeds Rhinos 25 Leigh Centurions 12

6th June 2014

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos needed two late tries to book their place in the Tetley’s Challenge Cup semi final on a nervous night at Headingley Carnegie.

The Rhinos were expecting a confident Leigh outfit as the game’s only unbeaten side arrived at Headingley Carnegie looking to cause a major outfit.

Leeds took the game to the visitors early on and took the lead after eight minutes when Ryan Hall finished out wide following good work by Stevie Ward and Joel Moon in midfield. Kevin Sinfield added the conversion from the touchline to make it 6-0.

However that did not put Paul Rowley’s side off their stride and they showed why they are favourites to win the Championship this season with some great flair on attack. They got their reward when prop Tom Spencer touched down from close range after Leeds had been penalised two tackles earlier. Ridyard added the conversion to level the game.

Life got even better for Leigh soon after when they capitalised from a rare error by Sinfield when he put the kick off out on the full. They made the most of the possession and kept the ball alive on the last tackle before winger Tom Armstrong went over in the corner. Ridyard added the conversion from the touchline to give his side a 12-6 lead.
Leigh could have had a third try when Ridyard chipped over the defence and regathered to set his side on their way but desperate defence on the line denied them.

The Rhinos thought they had hit back when Liam Sutcliffe bounced off a defender and headed back across field before cutting through to score however referee Thaler disallowed it for obstruction as Ryan Bailey was in front of him when he ran around, regardless of whether he interfered with play.

Leeds did finally get a second try when Stevie Ward stayed alert to a half break by Sutcliffe. He had his offload knocked down by the Leigh defender and Ward dribbled the ball ahead before diving on the ball to score. Sinfield added the conversion to level the game after 32 minutes.

Both teams had half chances to get the lead before the break but they were unable to capitalise, the closest chance to separate the teams came from Leigh with a drop goal attempt in the final minute of the half that drifted wide.

Tensions were high at the start of the second half with so much at stake and that boiled over after three minutes when Jamie Peacock took exception to Matt Sarsfield leading with his head into the Leeds man’s face in the tackle. The pair ended up trading punches and both were shown a yellow card.

That only served to ramp up the tension however as Leigh sensed the chance to create one of the greatest ever Cup upsets. They had chances to score most notably when a cross field kick just evaded the grasp of Liam Kay and they were left to rue not making the most of their possession when the Rhinos produced a late, late rally to seal the win.

Leeds scored 13 points inside the final eight minutes of the game to book their place in the semi final of the cup. Young hooker Robbie Ward finally broke the deadlock when he reacted quickest as Leigh shot out of the line anticipating a drop goal and he went over from dummy half.

Sinfield added the conversion and then bobbed over a drop goal to put his side two scores in front.

Leeds then put the game beyond any doubt when Robbie Ward and Peacock combined to put Hardaker away and he was never going to be stopped. Sinfield added the conversion to make the final score 25-12 on a nerve wracking night for the Rhinos.
