Leeds Rhinos 45 Bradford Bulls 16

18th June 1999

By Leeds Rhinos

Just when you think that the Rhinos can not possibly play any better, they remind you why they have already managed to win a trophy this season.

In front of the biggest Super League crowd ever, 21,666, the Rhinos with pace, flair and desire registered an impressive victory over the current League table-toppers.
Henry Paul, aside, who played well for the visitors to grab two tries, and forgetting the error from Lee Jackson that gifted David Boyle a try, this was the most comprehensive victory over a top team seen at Headingley for a while.
Andy Hay caught the eye with a memorable hat trick, but even that was not enough to seal the Man of the Match award, which went to the evergreen Daryl Powell for his awesome contribution to the victory.
Hay , put in by Iestyn Harris went over for the first Leeds try to even the score.
With the Bulls looking strong Leeds did incredibly well to grab two more tries before the break and both were down to the astute play of Powell and two clever short passes.
Marc Glanville and Adrian Morley were the delighted recipients of Powell's craft.
The stand-off become the first Leeds player to kick a 40-20 this season and Powell himself helped the Rhinos go in at the break with a comfortable lead grabbing a one pointer.
19-6 HT
The Bulls started brightly after the break but again it was the Rhinos who got on the score sheet first.
Hay for his second try managed to break through three tackles to put the ball over the line.
The Leeds crowd were jubilant at this stage and they played a part in the victory reducing the Bradford roar to a whimper.{C}

{C}The vociferous support gave the team all the assistance they needed for a magic ten minute spell of attacking football that culminated in a Leroy Rivett try in the corner, after great work from Marvin Golden to keep the ball in play.
The Bulls never gave up and came back with a couple of tries, but the last laugh belonged to the Rhinos.
Andy Hay for his third of the night broke through a tackle in his own half and proceeded to run the length of the pitch out-sprinting the Bulls cover for the second three try haul of his career.
Just before the end insult was added to injury, when Paul Sterling athletically got on the end of a chip kick forward to cross in the corner.
Graham Murray was beaming from ear to ear in the press conference and rightly so.
A great crowd, a great game and a great victory
Those lucky enough to be at Headingley on Friday saw the Rhinos arguably produce the best display since Graham Murray's arrival.
Fans already have a good selection of games to look back at with a smile since the former Hunter Mariners boss has taken over, and some big comebacks last season and victory against Wigan in the Challenge Cup, with the Rhinos down to ten men, rank highly.
Graham Murray said: " It was the best Daryl has played for me, but I don't know if it wasn't as good a game as we've all played. We were pretty white hot. You have those days. We're playing pretty good footie at the moment."
