Leeds Rhinos 58 Featherstone Rovers 0

16th June 2017

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos booked their place in the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup semi final with a comprehensive 58-0 win over Featherstone Rovers at Headingley Carnegie.

Featherstone made their task even harder for themselves from the kick off when Liam Sutcliffe’s kick was spilled. Rovers did well to keep the Rhinos out initially but after three back to back sets finally the resistance was broken and Stevie Ward proved too strong near the line to stop.  Sutcliffe added the conversion to make it 6-0 after five minutes.
 
Rovers managed to find their feet after that but without troubling the Rhinos line however they then suffered a double blow as Leeds scored in back to back sets.
 
The visitors had defended their line well only for John Davies to drop his catch as McGuire kicked to the in goal and Brett Ferres was on hand to do the simple job of touching down.
 
Brad Singleton and Liam Sutcliffe took the game right back to Rovers from the restart before Danny McGuire set Ferres away with an offload and the forward passed to Joel Moon, who was never going to be stopped from close range. Sutcliffe converted both tries to make it 18-0 after 16 minutes.
 
Featherstone had a fantastic opportunity to hit back ten minutes later. Cory Aston, playing against his parent club, stepped his way passed Anthony Mullally but lost his footing as he tried to deceive Sutcliffe. He did managed to get his pass away as he fell to Davies however when he flicked the pass on to his team mate James Lockwood, the replacement was unable to get down to the low ball and knocked on on the try line.
 
The Rhinos were denied a fourth try when video referee Ben Thaler agreed with referee Chris Kendall’s on field decision after McGuire thought he had scored, the officials judging that the Leeds skipper had made a double effort to get the ball over.
 
Leeds did increase their lead on the stroke of half time when McGuire and Ryan Hall, playing at centre, combined to put Ash Handley in space down the touchline to score. Sutcliffe missed the conversion attempt from wide out with the last kick of the half but the Rhinos had one foot in the semi final with a 22-0 lead at the break.

The first ten minutes of the second half were an even affair as both teams got back into the game however any hope of a fight back for Rovers was extinguished when Lockwood was sin binned when he came in as the third man with a tackle into Cuthbertson’s knees to take the Leeds man down.  
 
The Rhinos ran in three tries whilst they had a numerical advantage. The first came from Carl Ablett as he was put through a gap by McGuire and Cuthbertson. Liam Sutcliffe then benefitted from some smart thinking by Tom Briscoe as the winger kicked back in field as the cover came across to tackle him into touch and Sutcliffe was on hand to pick up and go over. Finally Handley scored his fifth try in the Challenge Cup so far this season as he benefitted from a superb offload by Hall to race in unopposed. Sutcliffe converted all three tries to put his side 40-0 in front.
 
Leeds then brough up the half century mark with two tries from Brad Singleton. The first came after Ward went close and the second was the result of a great kick chase by Parcell and Hall that trapped Hardman in his own in goal and from the drop out Singleton crossed for his second three tackles later.  Sutcliffe converted both tries to give his side a 52-0 lead.
 
Ryan Hall then got in on the try scoring as he judged Sutcliffe’s kicked perfectly to jump highest to go through the cover and score. Sutcliffe added the conversion.
 
Rovers thought they had broken their duck with five minutes to go but were denied by the video referee for a knock on.
