Leeds Rhinos 28 Castleford Tigers 12

19th April 2013

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos booked their place in the Fifth Round of the Tetley’s Challenge Cup with a hard earned 28-12 win over Castleford Tigers at Headingley Carnegie.

Much of the speculation before the game surrounded Castleford's talismanic half back Rangi Chase after speculation around his future however he was at Headingley Carnegie ready to face the Champions. 

WP – Home MPU

Rhinos Head Coach Brian McDermott made one change from the side that defeated London seven days earlier with Brett Delaney returning to the second row and Mitch Achurch moving to the bench.

Leeds started the game at a high tempo on attack and defence, obviously keen to stem any momentum Castleford may look to gain with their underdog status coming into the match. The home side opened the scoring after seven minutes. The chance came from a fine break by Joel Moon, who combined well with Danny McGuire to open up the Tigers defence. Danny Orr’s men were back peddling desperately and Sinfield coolly kicked to the corner and all Watkins had to do was catch the ball and touch it down to open the scoring. Sinfield missed the touchline attempt from out wide but his side led 4-0.

The Rhinos had further chances and Watkins was denied a second try when referee Phil Bentham adjudged Carl Ablett’s last pass was forward. The home side allowed Castleford off the hook on a number of occasions with some dropped ball near the Tigers line and the visitors made them pay after 20 minutes with one of their first attacks of the game.

Michael Shenton and Daryl Clark were involved in the build up before, almost inevitably, Rangi Chase finished off the move. Ellis added the simple conversion to edge his side in front.

Leeds had great chances for Ryan Hall, Danny McGuire and Zak Hardaker later in the half but some tremendous defence from the Tigers, led by former Rhino Jordan Tansey kept the visitors in front at the break.

No doubt the message at half time in the Rhinos dressing room was to keep their composure and keep the pressure on the Tigers having dominated possession and chances in the first half.

That is what the Rhinos did and they got their reward just three minutes into the half when Rob Burrow finished off another break by Moon, who was outstanding throughout, and before the hooker showed great strength to get over. Sinfield added the conversion to put his side four points in front.

Once again Castleford were clinical with their limited chances and, following a knock on by Watkins near his line, they worked a move from a scrum to re-take the lead. Chase kicked through and, despite claims for offside and not grounding the ball correctly, Ellis was awarded the try. He added the conversion to make put his side back in front again.

Leeds needed to make a decisive blow and they did midway through the second half. Danny McGuire, man of the match on the night, created the first and scored the next two for the home side.

Chris Clarkson took McGuire’s short pass near the line and showed great leg drive to take him over the line.
McGuire then grabbed a brace to seal the win for the Rhinos. The first came from a great passage of play finished off by McGuire whilst the second was a typical piece of try scoring from the half back, who backed himself to beat the cover and race over between the posts. Sinfield converted all the second half tries to take him clear in sixth place in the all time points scorers list in the game and surpass Kel Coslett.

Castleford continued to battle hard but the Rhinos were in control and saw off the final ten minutes to book their place in the Fifth Round of the Tetley’s Challenge Cup.
