Leeds Rhinos 54 London Broncos 6

21st March 2014

By Leeds Rhinos

The Rhinos ran out comfortable winners against London Broncos with Ryan Hall celebrating his new five year contract with the club by grabbing a hat trick.

Leeds opened the scoring inside two minutes when Brad Singleton latched onto Danny McGuire’s grubber kick to score his first try for the club. Hardaker added the conversion to make it 6-0.

Hall then took over to score his hat trick either side of a try from Mitch Achurch. The first was a typical Hall effort as he held off the last defender to stretch out one handed to score in the corner. His second effort showed good awareness as he chased through a kick from McGuire around the back of the Broncos defenders before popping up to regather the ball and race through to score. He completed his hat trick by out jumping Jamie O’Callaghan to catch Rob Burrow’s cross field kick and score. 

Achurch’s try, shortly after the forward had come on, was a hard earned one as he broke from 15 metres out but was hauled down by Thomas Minns, on loan from Leeds to London, however he managed to drag himself over the line and get the ball down and was awarded the try by the video referee.
The first half rout was completed when Ben Jones-Bishop added to his two tries last week in the win over Widnes as he supported a breath taking break by Kallum Watkins to score. Hardaker added his fifth conversion of the half to make it 34-0 at the break.

Leeds carried on where they had left off at the start of the second half as Hardaker had too much strength near the line to be stopped. He added the conversion to make it 40-0 and it appeared a massive scoreline might have been on the cards. 

However, credit to the young London side who battled back and never threw in the towel. They got their reward when the video officials awarded a try to winger Mason Caton-Brown, which Josh Drinkwater converted. 

Both teams had great chances to score again, Leeds produced some good goal line defence to keep London out, who had two tries ruled out by the video officials, whilst Leeds were guilty of some uncharacteristic handling error as they broke clear. 

The Rhinos did however finish with a flourish with Kallum Watkins power over from close range and then setting up Jones-Bishop for his second try. Then with the final play of the game Burrow bamboozled the London defence to get a well deserved try, which he converted himself to make the final score 54-6.
