Leeds Rhinos 32 Catalan Dragons 31

29th June 2014

By Leeds Rhinos

A last gasp penalty from Liam Sutcliffe grabbed a dramatic win for Leeds Rhinos against Catalan Dragons at Headingley Carnegie.

Leeds were facing the form team in Super League as they took on a Catalan outfit who have lost only once in ten games. However, the men from Perpignan have had huge problems on the road this season and had never previously won at Headingley Carnegie.

The Rhinos lost Kylie Leuluai in the warm up and found themselves 6-0 down after just three minutes when full back Morgan Escare, who has been in sensational form this season, broke through the defence to score. Sam Williams added the conversion.

Leeds hit back six minutes later when Ryan Hall finished off a flowing move across the field. He scored in the corner and Sutcliffe was unable to convert the tricky touchline conversion attempt. Catalan then extended their lead when Brett Delaney was penalised for a late challenge on Leon Pryce and Williams kicked the simple penalty.

However, the Rhinos then levelled the game when Ben Jones-Bishop was quickest to react to a kick through from Catalan and he stepped passed two would be tacklers before racing 90 metres to score. Sutcliffe was unable to convert from wide out again.

Catalan appeared to have struck a decisive blow with two tries, the first from Zeb Taia and then one for the returning Eloi Pellisser. Williams kept up his faultless day with the boot to give his side a strong lead at 20-8.

Leeds needed something before half time and they got a try back when the impressive Josh Walters got a try his efforts after coming off the bench deserved. Jamie Peacock made in roads in the Catalan defence, despite earlier having 13 stitches in a cut around his eye, and his offload put Walters away. Sutcliffe was on target to make it 20-14 at the break.

Once again Catalan refused to be beaten and they increase their lead again when Taia crossed for his second try of the game however Leeds then hit back with three quick tries of their own. Peacock once again unsettled the Dragons defence before quick hands put Joel Moon over out wide.

The game was levelled when Carl Ablett showed tremendous strength at the line to hold off three would be tacklers before stretching out one handed to score. Sutcliffe added the conversion to level the game at 24-24.

Moon then grabbed a second try when he was quickest to react to a wide pass from Catalan and he intercepted before racing 50 metres to score between the posts. Sutcliffe added the conversion and Leeds led for the first time in the game at 30-24 with 14 minutes to play.

Catalan were not going to throw the towel in and they equalised with ten minutes to play when Pryce offloaded in the tackle as he fell and put Daryl Millard away down the touchline. Williams kept his nerve to equalise from the touchline.

Leeds attempted to grab a winning try but the Dragons defence remained strong and they then went down the other end and engineered a drop goal for the impressive Escare to put his side 31-30 in front with just three minutes to play.

The Rhinos were fortunate to get the ball back when Sutcliffe’s short kick off did not go ten metres but Jason Baitieri touched the ball and a certain penalty against Leeds was suddenly in their favour. Leeds could find no way through the visitors defence but just as they looked to play out time coming away from their own line they were guilty of obstruction. That gave Sutcliffe the chance to win the game from 30 metres out and the 19 year old showed a cool head to kick the winning goal.
