Leeds Rhinos 42 Warrington Wolves 26

1st June 2007

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds produced a clinical display at Headingley Carnegie as they put the Wolves to the sword.

However, it was the visitors who took the lead after three minutes when Henry Fa'afili wrong footed Danny McGuire before racing through to score. Briers missed the conversion but Leeds trailed 4-0.

The Rhinos finally sparked into life after forcing a repeat set on the Wolves after 14 minutes. Two tackles later, McGuire put Keith Senior away with a cut out pass and the Great Britain centre powered his way over for his fifth try of the season. Sinfield added a great touchline conversion to give the Rhinos a 6-4 lead.

The lead was extended after 20 minutes when McGuire backed himself on the last tackle close to the Wolves line, he stepped through the defence before drawing Brent Grose and sending Brent Webb in for this 16th try of the season under the posts. Sinfield converted to make it 12-4.

The Wolves hit back when Kevin Penny beat Lee Smith and Webb to a cross field kick from Jon Clarke to score his first try in Super League in the corner.

The Rhinos scored their third try just before the 30 minute mark when Senior was awarded a penalty try when Lee Briers attempted to kick the ball out of the Leeds man’s hands in the attempt of grounding.

With five minutes remaining in the half the Rhinos extended their lead when good work from Senior and Scott Donald saw the Australian race down the South Stand touchline before passing back inside to McGuire to score his eighth try of the season. Sinfield's conversion making it 24-8

Fa'afili went in for his second try of the night just before half time and Briers conversion made it 24-14 at the break.
It was important that the Rhinos did not allow Warrington to gain any momentum at the start of the second half and the home side had a great chance after just five minutes when Jordan Tansey kicked his second 40:20 in as many weeks to put the Rhinos on the front foot. Leeds moved the ball left and then back to the right and a clever cut out pass from McGuire caught Penny flat footed and Clinton Toopi raced in for a try. Sinfield's conversion making it 30-14 after 46 minutes.

Fa'afili completed his hat trick to give the Wolves a lifeline as Briers’ conversion made it 30-20 with 20 minutes remaining.

Once again Leeds needed to take the wind out of the Wolves sail and they did just that two minutes later. Penny made a blunder under pressure from McGuire as he knocked on ten metres from his own line and Webb picked up and stepped back across to touch down his second try of the night. Sinfield added the conversion to make it 36-20 to Leeds.

And the Rhinos finally put the game beyond Warrington with nine minutes remaining. There was some great skill on display from Burrow, Senior and Tansey and eventually Ian Kirke came steaming onto a pass and powered his way over between the posts. Sinfield kicked his seventh conversion from seven attempts to make it 42-20 to Leeds.
Penny made up for his earlier error with a try saving tackle on Lee Smith late on and then produced a brilliant run to score from deep but it was too little, too late for the Wolves.
