Leeds Rhinos 42 London Broncos 14

17th September 2004

By Leeds Rhinos

Headingley was in celebratory mood as 17,329 witnessed Leeds defeat London 42-14 and lift the League Leaders Shield.

The Rhinos opened the scoring through Keith Senior, when the Great Britain international crashed over for his 13th try of the season after ten minutes. Richard Mathers collected a loose pass from the Broncos close to their own line but was just caught short but the charging Senior could not be stopped when he took in a simple pass from dummy half by Diskin. Sinfield added the goal to make it 6-0.

WP – Home MPU

The Broncos looked to apply some pressure after that early score but when Dennis Moran’s crossfield kick was fielded by Calderwood ahead of Lee Greenwood, it gave the flying wingman the chance he was looking for and he raced 90 metres to touchdown under the posts. Sinfield added the conversion.

A brilliant falling off load from Ali Lauitiiti created the next try. Leeds had worked hard to get out from their own in goal with solo runs from Mathers, Calderwood, Walker and Senior before Leeds moved the ball through hands towards the Main Stand, the giant Kiwi took the ball from Diskin and passed in the same motion as he fell to give Chev Walker his 18th try of the season.

London got on the scoreboard next with a bizarre effort that would have certainly been referred to the video ref if this had been a tv game. Nigel Roy broke through twenty metres out but appeared to lose the ball as he went to ground it however referee Ron Laughton ruled that Mark Calderwood had knocked the ball out and Rob Purdham was first to react and touch the ball down, to make it 16-4 at half time.

The Broncos scored a second try after 44 minutes when former Wakefield winger Paul Sampson dived in at the corner after Dennis Moran’s desperation pass created an overlap.

Normal service was quickly resumed though when Ali Lauitiiti waltzed through the Broncos defence, after a good break by Mathers, to score under the posts. Sinfield adding the extras.

Lauitiiti scored his second in as many minutes when he showed incredible strength to hold off three would be tacklers to touch down in front of his adoring South Stand to make it 26-8.

Matt Diskin then scored a minute after returning off the bench, going from dummy half under the shadow of the posts, Sinfield stretching the lead to 32-8 with the routine conversion.

Diskin then added his second try with another typical dart from dummy half before Mark Calderwood also completed his brace of tries, finishing off a flowing move to hold off the cover and score in the corner to make it 42-8.
Dennis Moran scored a consolation try after 76 minutes with Neil Budworth adding the conversion.
