Leeds Rhinos 42 Widnes Vikings 22

17th April 2017

By Leeds Rhinos

Matt Parcell, Kallum Watkins and Joel Moon both scored twice as the Rhinos made it back to back wins over Easter with victory over Widnes Vikings at Headingley Carnegie.

The two sides came into the game in contrasting form from the first game of the Easter weekend but both had to make changes due to injuries.
 
Brian McDermott was without Ashton Golding and Liam Sutcliffe meaning Ash Handley and Stevie Ward started at the unaccustomed positions of full back and centre respectively.
 
Leeds took the lead after just six minutes when Danny McGuire produced a perfect kick back towards the posts and Kallum Watkins leaped highest to catch and go over in the same movement. He converted his own try to make it 6-0.
 
The Rhinos crossed for a second try two minutes with a bizarre try off another McGuire kick. Widnes full back Corey Thompson allowed the kick to bounce near his line only to see it rebound off the underside of the cross bar and Matt Parcell was on the spot to pick up and touch down for his fifth try in six games.
 
Widnes put themselves under more pressure soon after with three quick penalties and Joel Moon crossed for his seventh of the season, taking Cuthbertson’s offload before stepping back across the cover to score. Watkins again added the conversion to make it 18-0.
 
Widnes had their best spell of the game after that score and went close twice before Tom Gilmore eventually found a way over, getting the ball down under pressure. He converted his own try and the Vikings had given themselves a lifeline.
 
However, any hopes of a come back appeared to be extinguished before half time with two quick tries from the Rhinos. The first was the try of the match as Stevie Ward got an offload away in a three man tackle to Moon. He broke down the South Stand side before passing to Ryan Hall. The winger drew the cover before passing over his head back inside for Moon to go over for the try. Watkins’ conversion hit the post and rebounded over to make it 24-6.
 
Then in the final minutes a smart piece of thinking by Tom Briscoe saw the winger wrong foot everyone to sneak over down the blindside. The Rhinos looked in complete control leading 30-6 at the break.
 
However, after both teams had produced scrappy starts to the second half it was Widnes who struck first when Gilmore went over for his second try of the game when Jamie Jones-Buchanan came out trying to get an interception after a long period of pressure on the Leeds line.
 
Chris Houston turned that into possible belief when taking an off-load from Owen Farnworth to score again with 18 minutes left and it was a different ball game with Leeds suddenly under some pressure.

Corey Thompson then scored in the corner and, although Gilmore missed his first conversion in four attempts, the visitors were suddenly only eight points adrift.

However, the Rhinos rallied late on and Watkins crossed for his second try with a strong run near the line and the scoring was completed in the last minute when Parcell went over from dummy half. Watkins kept up his 100% record with the boot with both conversions.
