Leeds Rhinos 40 Harlequins 20

20th May 2011

By Leeds Rhinos

The Rhinos booked their place in the Quarter Final of the Carnegie Challenge Cup with a hard earned win over Quins at Headingley Carnegie.

Leeds Rhinos and Harlequins RL met at Headingley Carnegie in the Fifth Round of the Carnegie Challenge Cup with each side looking to take another step towards Wembley.

WP – Home MPU

The Rhinos welcomed back Ryan Bailey, Ali Lauitiiti and Chris Clarkson to the side with Weller Hauraki and Luke Burgess earning a rest this week as Head Coach Brian McDermott begins to get his full squad together.

Quins were looking for a repeat of their victory at Headingley Carnegie in Round Three of Super League however a run of poor results since, apart from victory over St Helens, has negated their good early season form. They included former Cup finalists with the Rhinos, Danny Ward and Mark Calderwood in their squad.

The Rhinos started brightly and opened the scoring after just four minutes. Chad Randall had lost possession thirty metres from his own try line and the home side sensed their chance. Ryan Hall came in field before spreading the ball to Kevin Sinfield who released Brett Delaney. The speed of the passing had created an overlap outwide and Zak Hardaker crossed for his fourth try in just his third appearance. Sinfield added the touchline conversion to make it 6-0.

Leeds were their own worst enemy four minutes later when they allowed Quins in for their first try. Luke Gale had kicked on the last tackle but the Rhinos appeared to have the situation well controlled as Calderwood caught the ball in an isolated position. However, he flung the ball back in field and the Quins attackers were quickest to react. The ball was fed along the line and Chris Melling had the simplest of jobs to score in the corner. Gale missed the conversion to leave the score at 6-4.

Having dominated the early exchanges the Rhinos allowed the control of the game to be wrestled away from them after that. Both teams were playing error free rugby but there was little in the way of risk in either side’s approach. Eventually it was the visitors who chanced their arm first when Luke Dorn spotted a half gap and ducked under the attempted tackles of Jamie Jones-Buchanan and Carl Ablett before stretching out to score. Gale missed the conversion but Quins led 8-6.

They increased their lead three minutes later but the Rhinos will be disappointed when they watch the replay of the score. Calderwood eventually crossed but there were a number of chances to prevent the move gaining momentum that were not taken. Gale was on target this time to make it 14-6 and leave the Rhinos questioning their continued participation in this year’s Carnegie Challenge Cup.

However, the beaten finalists from 2010 came up with the right answers as the first half drew to a close. They got a try back through Jones-Buchanan following good work by Ali Lauitiiti, just on the pitch, to regain possession off Chris Melling ten metres from the Quins line. The ball found its way to Sinfield who popped up a short pass for the second row to take and he showed good strength to get the ball down. Sinfield was off target with the conversion attempt.

The Rhinos then re-took the lead with six minutes to go until half time. Once again it came from an error by the visitors with a knock on at the scrum. Leeds kept the tempo high and Sinfield pass to Brett Delaney gave the centre time to charge at the line and he bumped off the initial challenge before reaching out to slam the ball down. Sinfield was on target this time to make it 16-14.

The home side continued their late rally with a fourth try just before the break. The move was created by a great offload by Ryan Bailey in the tackle. Sinfield matched that with another telling pass to Lauitiiti. He broke down the Main Stand side before passing to Hardaker. The young winger had the presence of thought to pass back inside over his head to put Lauitiiti clear to score. Sinfield added the conversion to make the half time score 22-14.

Leeds increased their advantage eight minutes into the second half when Kylie Leuluai came crashing through to score between the posts. Sinfield making it 28-14 to the Rhinos.

Having taken control of the game, the action dipped slightly after that however the fans were brought to their feet by a neat piece of skill from Lee Smith as he was unlucky not to get a try after spinning out of the tackle. The Rhinos kept up the pressure and good footwork by Ryan Hall took him passed Calderwood to score in the corner. Sinfield missed the touchline conversion but the Rhinos now led 32-14 after 64 minutes.

Leeds conceded a soft try soon afterwards when Sinfield’s wayward pass near his own line was latched on by the Quins and youngster Ben Bolger went over for a consolation try, converted by Gale. Worse still, the Rhinos were then dealt a blow with ten minutes to go when Keith Senior had to be helped from the field after suffering a leg injury.

It looked like the game was beginning to splutter out for the home side however a great tackle from Rob Burrow lifted his side for one last effort. He forced a knock on and then from the ensuing scrum, Chris Clarkson went 60 metres to score. Sinfield added the conversion and a last second penalty to make the final score 40-20 and book the Rhinos place in the Quarter Final of the Carnegie Challenge Cup.
