Leeds Rhinos 34 Salford City Reds 6

28th May 2004

By Leeds Rhinos

The Rhinos produced a convincing 34-6 win over Salford at Headingley. Rampant Leeds hardly needed new signing Ali Lauitiiti as they easily completed the double over lowly Salford.

The 6ft 2in, 17st back rower was given a rapturous welcome by the 14,239 Headingley crowd when he came on after half-an-hour with the Rhinos already 24-0 ahead.

He played 25 minutes in two spells before taking a heavy knock to his face, while attempting a tackle on Salford forward Sean Rutgerson, which forced him to retire to the bench.

The Reds were forced to field a makeshift half-back pairing in Martin Moana and Joel Caine following the loss of Gavin Clinch, Karl Fitzpatrick and Cliff Beverley and they rarely threatened the Leeds line throughout a one-sided first half.

Leeds exposed their woefully weak defence as early as the ninth minute when skipper Kevin Sinfield ran the ball on the last tackle and went past a trio of defenders with alarming ease and kicked the first of five goals.

The highlight of the Rhinos' five-try show before half-time was a glorious 70-metre try from winger Mark Calderwood, who finished in spectacular fashion after Willie Poching had intercepted Moana's pass 20 metres out from his own line.

Hooker Matt Diskin, winger Francis Cummins and impressive centre Keith Senior scored the other tries as the home
side led 28-0 at the break.

Salford, who gave a debut to teenager Tim Hartley, raised their game in the second-half and deservedly got on the scoreboard on 51 minutes when burly prop Neil Baynes crashed over for a try which Chris Charles converted.

The Rhinos rarely found their rhythm in the second-half and their only score came from a 70-metre interception try by substitute Danny McGuire.
