Leeds Rhinos 38 Wakefield Wildcats 18

13th April 2012

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos booked their place in the Fifth round of the Carnegie Challenge Cup with a second half blitz to score 32 unanswered points to turn the game around against a spirited Wakefield outfit.

The Rhinos included Danny McGuire for the first time in five games as he partnered Kevin Sinfield in the halves. Ryan Bailey continued his spell at loose forward whilst the Rhinos had options on the bench with Paul McShane and Lee Smith both available on the interchange.

The Rhinos had the better of the early pressure as they kept Wakefield penned inside their own half with some tight defence and aggressive tackling. That in turn led to the Wildcats forcing the pass and errors occurred. However, the nearest the Rhinos came to scoring in those early exchanges was when Leuluai was stopped near the line.
Leeds had a major set back early on when Rob Burrow suffered a cheek bone injury when he clashed heads with Wakefield loose forward Paul Aiton.

Worse was to come for Leeds as, against the run of play Wakefield struck the first blow. A clever wide pass exposed a gap in the Leeds defence, with Burrow’s replacement Paul McShane down with a shoulder injury, and Kyle Amor went over. The Cumbrian did not celebrate the score against his former club however the Wildcats were in the lead, with Paul Sykes adding the conversion.

Leeds replied straight away with Ryan Bailey powering his way over from close range however they found themselves behind once again when the impressive Danny Kirmond carried two would be tacklers over the line with him to stretch out and score. Sykes was on target again and it looked like an upset was on the cards at 12-6 at half time.
However, the Champions responded in fine form after the break and ran in 32 unanswered points to book their place in the last 32 of the Carnegie Challenge Cup.

The first score came from Danny McGuire after a perfectly timed pass from Brett Delaney released Chris Clarkson. The young back rower cut through the line and drew the last man before putting McGuire in for the equalising score.
Zak Hardaker then made it seven consecutive games with a try for Leeds and twelve in twelve games this season with a double inside nine minutes before the hour mark. His first came as he took Sinfield’s pass before ducking under three attempted tackles and darting over for the try. The second was from well trodden path this season. Sinfield’s cross field kick was caught by Hall who offloaded to Hardaker, he stepped around the on rushing defence to score. Sinfield converted all three tries to put the Rhinos into a 24-12 lead.

Carl Ablett then got in on the try scoring as he finished off a fine flowing move as McGuire and Webb combined to put Ablett through, and he held off Ben Cockayne to touch down.

Paul McShane returned to the field for the final quarter after shaken off the shoulder injury he suffered earlier in the match and he spotted a gap from dummy half and burrowed his way over for the try. Sinfield missed both conversions, the latter hitting the post, but his side were in command now at 32-12.

The result was put beyond any doubt with five minutes to go when Ben Jones-Bishop made the extra man out wide on the end of a slick passing move to score. Sinfield was on target this time and the Rhinos now led 38-12.

There was still time for Wakefield to score a consolation try as Isaac John scored out wide, converted by Sykes, but the Rhinos were good value for their win and place in the next round of the Cup.
