Leeds Rhinos 28 Harlequins RL 16

23rd March 2007

By Leeds Rhinos

Thanks to two tries each for Brent Webb and Danny McGuire the Rhinos ran out 28-16 winners over Quins at Headingley Carnegie.

The Rhinos took the lead after seven minutes and it was a gift from Quins Chris Melling as he lost control of the ball when Clinton Toopi hit him in the tackle. Danny McGuire snatched up the loose ball and had a stroll in for his third try of the season. Sinfield added the conversion to make it 6-0.

WP – Home MPU

Leeds doubled their lead two minutes later and it included some great reactions for the Leeds backline. McGuire had his kicked ahead blocked by Lee Hopkins but Ellis kept his eye on the ball, collected the rebound on the full then raced down field. He fed Diskin, who found the supporting run of Webb and the New Zealand test star stepped round the full back to score. Sinfield added the conversion to make it 12-0.

The visitors hit back after 23 minutes following their first real spell of pressure. Having gained territory deep in the Leeds half through a penalty they moved the ball wide through Mark McLinden. Then play was switched back to the opposite side and Melling was on hand to make amends for his earlier mistake. Henry Paul's conversion attempt struck the post and bounced away to leave the score 12-4.

Leeds needed to respond and they did in style with Webb bringing the crowd to their feet with a great break from deep then Burrow ducked and weaved his way to the line but was just tackled short. However, Leeds kept possession and eventually McGuire burst through the defence to score. Sinfield added the conversion to make it 18-4 after 31 minutes.
In the last minute of the half the Rhinos extended their lead with a penalty from Sinfield after Rinaldi was penalised for ball stealing 15 metres from his own line making it 20-4 at the interval.

At the start of the half, Webb released Ashley Gibson down the touchline before the young winger repaid the favour by chipping the ball back in field with the outside of his boot for Webb to collect and go round and score by the post. Sinfield added the conversion to make it 26-4 after 43 minutes.

Quins did managed to get a try back after 52 minutes, when they moved the ball quickly with some clever offloading and were able to create an overlap down their right side and Matt Gafa finished off the move. Henry Paul added the touchline conversion to make it 24-10.

The Rhinos then had to produce two great pieces of defence to deny the visitors. After 59 minutes Donald produced a great cover tackle to stop a certain try by Andy Smith under the shadow of the posts before Webb showed great skill to stand up and make Danny Orr check his run and pass to Mark McLinden and allow the cover to come back and snuff out the danger.

However, the best was yet to come. Paul Sykes looked a certain try scorer as he sprinted for the line however Webb came flying across and put out his hand to grab the ball out of Sykes grasp, falling on the loose ball. Quins gained the head and feed but the chance had gone and the Rhinos again saw off the danger.

In the next set Leeds went down field and were awarded a penalty 18 metres out for a high shot by McCarthy-Scaysbrook on Ellis. Sinfield dabbed over the penalty to make it 28-10.

With four minutes remaining the visitors scored a consolation try when Gafa knocked down a cross field kick into the arms of Paul Sykes to score. Purdham kicked the conversion to make it 28-16 and that was how it finished.
