Leeds Rhinos 42 Castleford Tigers 24

7th June 2013

By Leeds Rhinos

A debut try from Thomas Minns and a hat trick from Jimmy Keinhorst lit up a packed Headingley Carnegie as the Rhinos got back to winning ways.

Leeds were without a number of senior players through injury whilst youngsters Brad Singleton, Liam Sutcliffe, Thomas Minns and Jimmy Keinhorst were all drafted into the 19 man squad.

Teenager Thomas Minns made his debut for the Rhinos after being named on the wing whilst Jimmy Keinhorst returned from his spell at Hunslet Hawks to line up in the centres. There was a surprise before kick off when Jamie Peacock was named in the starting line up after being drafted into the squad in place of Joe Vickery, who was ruled out with a knee injury.

The Rhinos were dealt another injury blow after just two minutes when Kylie Leuluai left the game with a knee injury that ruled him out for the rest of the game.

However, Minns got his debut off to a perfect start when he scored after six minutes. Rob Burrow got the attack going when he burst clear and was hauled down just short of the line by Ellis. The visitors were back peddling though and when McShane offloaded from dummy half to Minns, the 18-year-old had the smallest of gaps to get across but showed good awareness and determination to power his way through two defenders to touch down. Kevin Sinfield missed the conversion attempt but his side had an early 4-0 lead.

Castleford hit back after 13 minutes when the Tigers spotted space outwide and Michael Shenton shifted the ball quickly to put former Rhino Weller Hauraki in space. He galloped clear before throwing a dummy pass which Hardaker went to intercept and he scampered over for the try. Ellis added the simple conversion to give his side the lead.

The see saw nature of the game tipped back in favour of the home side with two tries in as many minutes at the quarter way point. The first came from Keinhorst, who showed all the confidence he has been exhibiting at Hunslet Hawks, when he cut a great line back infield to take a pass from Rob Burrow and slice his way through the Tigers defence.

The next score was special moment for Zak Hardaker as he took an offload from Peacock inside his own half and burst through the defence before rounding Jordan Tansey to score. Sinfield converted both tries to make it 16-6.

Castleford gave themselves a lifeline as the half drew to a close when Jordan Tansey raced through for a try after Daryl Clark had broken free of a number of attempted tackles. Ellis added the conversion to make it 16-12 at the break.

The second half was an equally competitive contest as the Tigers gave as good as they got. Tansey gave his side the lead again when they scored from long range again with Ellis giving his side a four point advantage.

However, the Rhinos responded with two tries from Jimmy Keinhorst for the former Leeds Met student to complete his hat trick and both were carbon copies of each other. Sinfield kicked across field to Hall, who took the catch high and then offloaded down to Keinhorst to cross. Sinfield converted both to give his side a ten point lead.

But the Tigers refused to go away and cut the gap again when Ryan Boyle initially broke through to create the damage and Craig Huby finished off the chance. Ellis converted to set up a grand stand finish.

However, the Rhinos finished the stronger with Peacock denied a well deserved try by the referee and in goal judge only for Kirke to crash over three tackles later. Sinfield converted and then added a penalty to put his side two converted scores in front.

The night was capped with a last second try from Joel Moon when he latched onto Burrow’s grubber kick to touch down. Sinfield converted with the last kick of the game to make the final score 42-24.
