Leeds Rhinos 42 Salford City Reds 14

15th February 2013

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos got back to winning ways with a workmanlike performance against Salford City Reds that saw them run in seven tries in a 42-14 win at Headingley Carnegie.

Leeds were without Jamie Peacock, Ryan Bailey and Brett Delaney but welcomed back Kylie Leuluai for his first appearance of the season.

Salford were forced to draft youngster Niall Evalds into the squad to replace former Rhino Danny Williams. 

The Rhinos were looking to produce an improved performance in the build up to the world title decider against Melbourne Storm seven days later and, whilst this was not of the same quality of the opening day win over Hull FC, the Champions produced a clinical performance to see off Salford.

Former Reds centre Joel Moon had a particularly enjoyable reunion with his former team mates as he crossed for a try in either half and the visitors were always on the backfoot following an early try from Stevie Ward.

Leeds missed a chance when Hall’s pass was knocked on outwide however from the ensuing scrum, Marc Sneyd lost control of the ball at first receiver and Ward hacked ahead five metres before touching down next to the post.

The Rhinos extended their lead with the first of Moon’s efforts. The chance came from a clever grubber kick from Danny McGuire, which skidded across the surface and Moon beat Carl Ablett and Zak Hardaker to the touch down.

The home side then moved 18-0 in front with a third try, again converted by Sinfield. This time Kallum Watkins proved too powerful near the line after being put through a gap by a well timed pass from Hardaker.

Leeds were in full control at this stage but Salford hit back on the brink of half time when Jodie Broughton broke from near his own line after Jimmy Keinhorst slipped attempting an intercept. Broughton raced up field and was halted in his stride 40 metres from the Leeds line but a big hit from Hardaker. The Salford man did well to keep his feet and managed to stagger on before Sinfield hauled him down. However, Leeds were back peddling and Sneyd spotted a huge overlap on the South Stand side. He kicked cross field to Niall Evalds, who took the kick and then offloaded to Ashley Gibson to touch down as he lay on his back. Snyed added the conversion with the last kick of the half to make it 18-6.

Salford once again turned defence into attack at the start of the second half to cut the deficit even further. This time Evald finished off the chance himself as he intercepted McGuire’s attempted pass outwide and raced nearly 100 metres to score in the corner. The conversion attempt was missed but the home crowd’s enthusiasm had been dampened with Salford now just 18-10 behind.

However, that was as close as Phil Veivers side got to causing an upset. Joel Moon finished off a flowing move to score outwide and then the arrival of Paul McShane off the bench gave the Rhinos fresh impetus and the hooker went over for two tries from dummy half, showing great strength and an eye for a half gap to hold off two and three defenders to cross for tries.

Salford never threw in the towel and Gibson crossed for a second try at his former home with five minutes remaining. Sneyd conversion attempt hitting the post and rebounding away.

It was left to Leeds skipper Sinfield to seal the win as Sneyd, just as he had done for the first try of the game, gifted the Rhinos the final score. He lost control of the ball and Sinfield snapped up the wayward pass and galloped over untouched to score. The England skipper then maintained his 100% kicking rate with his 36th consecutive goal stretching back to the start of the 2012 play offs and secure his side a 42-14 win.
