Leeds Rhinos 32 Batley Bulldogs 0

9th September 2016

By Leeds Rhinos

On their first visit to Headingley Carnegie for 39 years, battling Batley Bulldogs received a standing ovation for their superbly spirited performance, as the part-timers made Leeds fight for every point in front of over 15,000 at Headingley Carnegie.

John Kear’s men showed an abundance of resilience and desire, scrambling back on numerous occasions to keep Leeds to 16 points, and three tries, in each half.

With Anthony Mullally replacing Mitch Garbutt and Ashton Golding in for Joel Moon, too many handling errors and indecision spoiled some of the host’s best work, but credit goes to the opposition for so often nullifying the threat when they seemed out on their feet.

It took Leeds 17 minutes to break the visitors down, Leeds again profiting through their right hand side, Jordan Lilley, impressive Brett Ferres and Kallum Watkins sending Tom Briscoe over in the corner, Lilley goaling from the touchline.

Watkins then struck twice in eight minutes before the break, taking his recent try tally to 13 in the last nine games, Lilley missing one conversion from near in front of the posts but landing the other.

Again in the second period, the visitor’s commendable obstinacy in defence prevented Leeds from breaking free of their shackles until the 56th minute and preventing further scores until Ryan Hall claimed a double in ten minutes.

Late on, Rob Burrow extended the victory margin, scampering in from Brad Singleton’s pass as Leeds made it eight consecutive wins to leave them on the verge of safety.
