Within a minute Burrow had claimed his second, Senior the provider again. A brilliant pass by Lauitiiti put Senior away and he ran over former Leeds full back Damien Gibson and despite the best efforts of another former Rhino Jonny Hepworth, Senior offloaded inside to Burrow to dive over, Sinfield converting both to make it 12-0.

Senior then got his own name on the scoresheet after 22 minutes. Dunemann putting Senior through 30 metres out and he smashed through the cover to score under the posts, Sinfield’s goal making it 18-0

Castleford had a brief reprieve when Crouch scored but Leeds retook control of the game in the closing minutes through two tries to Chev Walker, the first off a smart pass from Sinfield close in the second off the back of a eighty metre team break. Walker set Mark Calderwood away on his own 30 metre line, he raced up field and he passed inside to Jamie Jones-Buchanan who found the supporting Walker to touch down. In between the two Walker efforts Marcus Bai finally got his first try of the game this time beating the touchline to get the ball down.

The second half started in much the same vein for the Rhinos when Poching took advantage of a great offload by Senior and Bai and he stretched one handed under two would be tacklers to score.

Castleford got their second try when Davies collected a short kick but Leeds struck back on 54 minutes though when Dunemann latched onto Diskin’s offload five metres out to score.

Leeds then brought up the half century when McDonald swatted off three tacklers to score. Sinfield’s goal making it 50-12.

Chev Walker then wrapped his hat trick he leaped to catch a bomb and side stepped Gibson to score under the posts.  Willie Poching then scored two minutes remaining when he intercepting a chip kick by Ryan Hudson to race in from twenty metres out. 

Chev Walker then rounded off the scoring with his fourth try of the night in the final seconds although Matt Adamson could not convert from outwide to leave the final score 64-12.
