Leeds Rhinos 64 Wakefield Trinity Wildcats 20

2nd September 2011

By Leeds Rhinos

A hat trick from Ryan Hall was part of a rout for the Rhinos as they put Wakefield to the sword at Headingley Carnegie.

Leeds Rhinos returned to Headingley Carnegie to face Wakefield in their final regular season home game looking to bounce back from last weeks defeat to Wigan.

The Rhinos were without five of the Cup Final team with Rob Burrow, Brent Webb, Ian Kirke, Kallum Watkins and Chris Clarkson all not risked through injury however that gave opportunities for others in the squad to press their claims for selection ahead of the play offs.

Wakefield included their Rhinos on loan star Kyle Amor who will return to Headingley Carnegie following next week's final game of the season.

Leeds got off to a perfect start when they scored within two minutes of kick off. The chance was created by a great offload by Jamie Peacock in midfield which Weller Hauraki was alert to. He spread the ball wide and Carl Ablett released Ryan Hall to score his 100th try for the club in the corner. Sinfield converted to make it 6-0.

That lead was double ten minutes later when Ben Jones-Bishop produced a great piece of wing play to cut in from the touchline and burst passed the desperate attempted tackles of the flat footed visitors to score. Sinfield again on target with the conversion.

Leeds then quickly crossed for a third time with Carl Ablett showing good power to drive through the defence after taking a short pass. Sinfield was again successful from the touchline to make it 18-0 after 15 minutes.

Wakefield had had their chances and it took some fine last ditch defence to keep them out from the home side however they eventually got a score when Semi Tadulala released Ryan Tongia to score down the touchline.

The home side responded to that with two more scores before the break. The first came from a scrum deep in Wakefield territory, McGuire and Smith worked a run around move before the former took a return pass from the latter and scampered through to score in the corner. Sinfield missed his first kick of the night but he had done well to regain his feet after a late challenge off the ball had flattened him prior to the scrum.

Leeds should have had another score when Jones-Buchanan broke through but his final pass to Smith was forward and a certain try went begging. However it was a stay of execution for the Wildcats a passage of quick hands create space for Ryan Hall to score in the corner. Sinfield added the conversion to make it 28-4 after 36 minutes.

Leeds came out fired up after half time and took the game once again to Wakefield. They managed to extend their lead five minutes into the half when Ali Lauitiiti showed his usual strength and sense for the try line to stretch out and score.

Wakefield then got two tries back through Josh Veivers and Motu Tony as the Rhinos appeared to take their foot off the gas however they soon found their gear again and romped home to victory in the final quarter.

The first score came from Danny Buderus after great work by Jay Pitts and Kevin Sinfield, the latter unselfishly passing back inside for the hooker to score.

Ryan Hall then completed his hat trick with his 102 try in his 119th appearance for the club with a classic finish in the corner.

It looked as if Lauitiiti would get a collectors edition try when he broke clear only for Motu Tony to deny him near the line however he passed to McGuire to score.

Jamie Peacock obviously sensed the chance to get himself off the launch pad on the try scoring charts with the tries flowing freely and there was no way he was going to be denied with nine minutes to go and then Lee Smith finished off a good break to score between the posts. Sinfield converted all the tries to make it 64-14 to Leeds.

Wakefield did get a late score back through 'Rhino' Kyle Amor, converted by Moore but there was no denying a fantastic night for the Rhinos.
