Leeds Rhinos 38 London Broncos 12

5th April 1999

By Leeds Rhinos

A fantastic second half performance from the Rhinos saw off a spirited London Broncos outfit, as Graham Murray’s men got back on track after two successive Super League defeats.

Twenty eight unanswered points after the break says it all, and young stand-in scrum half Dean Lawford with two tries epitomised the Rhinos' tremendous performance.

The Rhinos were on the backfoot early in this Challenge Cup final dress rehearsal and, after sustained pressure second row Shane Millard went over for the Broncos.

Brett Wharton kicked the goal and it was 6-0 to the visitors, but the Rhinos roared right back into the game almost immediately.

London couldn't put Welshman Iestyn Harris down and the Rhinos skipper put Dean Lawford over by the posts.

Harris himself converted, and the Rhinos were back on level terms.

However the Broncos were certainly not going to lie down and let Leeds dictate their style of play on the game, and the visitors again took the lead with a smart try from Karle Hammond – again goaled by Wharton.

Just before the half hour mark, though, Leeds scored a cracker of a try – Brad Godden made a sensational break down the left, and put Francis Cummins over in the corner.

Harris couldn't convert, but the Rhinos were well and truly back in the game at 10-12.

Graham Murray had a job on at the interval to pick up his players, but whatever he said must have worked because the results were there for all to see at the beginning of the second stanza.

Anthony Farrell went through a massive hole in the London defence to touch down, and Harris tagged on the conversion.

Moments later the Rhinos were over again, when Lee Jackson put Adrian Morley on a rampaging run through the exposed cover.

Morley was just pegged back, but they couldn't stop Marvin Golden going over out wide.

Harris once more goaled and the Rhinos finally had control of the game and led 20-12.

Barrie MacDermott almost added to the Rhinos lead just after the hour, but he was recalled for a marginally forward pass.

There then came a worrying moment for the Rhinos, when Jamie Mathiou had to be helped from the field with an arm injury – Martin Massella came on to replace him.

Luckily this didn't knock the Rhinos out of their rhythm, and Leroy Rivett took a pass from Golden and rounded his opposite number with ease to notch the fifth Rhinos try – with Harris kicking his third goal of the match.

Harris himself grabbed the next try, and rubbed salt into the London wounds by kicking the conversion to make the score 32-12.

The scoring was completed by Lawford – his second of the game – Harris again kicking the goal, and the Rhinos fans went home happy after seeing their side run out convincing winners in the end.
