Leeds Rhinos 66 Widnes Vikings 8

27th February 2005

By Leeds Rhinos

The Rhinos produced an incredible second half performance to blow Widnes away and send out a warning to the rest of the engage Super League.

A rare Sunday afternoon outing for the Rhinos saw them met with wintry conditions and initially a robust Widnes side full of confidence after their win against Bradford the previous week.

Widnes actually opened the scoring when winger Andrew Emelio touched down in the corner after Aaron Moule had put in an overhead pass to release the winger.

The Rhinos hit back after 11 minutes when the ball was moved from right to left and Chev Walker managed to release his hands to pass to Calderwood who scored in the corner.

Walker nearly scored himself only to be tackled by former Leeds man Gary Connolly however, he got a quick play the ball and Calderwood scampered over in the corner.

Snow began to fall at Headingley before Widnes had their best spell of pressure in the game. Widnes had four repeat sets on the Leeds line as referee Richard Silverwood decided to make his presence felt. However, all the Vikings came away with was a Stephen Rowlands penalty and they were immediately punished.

Ali Lauitiiti crossed after Widnes had knocked on from the re-start he then set up Gareth Ellis for his first try for the club six minutes later with a trademark offload.  Widnes did get another Rowlands penalty before half time to make it 18-8 at the interval.

Leeds burst into life in the second half and when Marcus Bai flew over one minute after the restart, from a tremendous offload from Mathers, the rout had started.

Four minutes later, Ellis cruised through some non-existent tackling to go over underneath the posts before Sinfield’s puncturing low kick reared up off the boot of Emelio and McDermott collected and stretched over.

Burrow then cruised over four minutes later as the Vikings fell apart before Calderwood completed his hat-trick after 56 minutes.  And then added a fourth try on the hour – and brought up the half-century – with the best try of the match.
It had its origins on his own try-line when he breezed through a vacant gap and embarrassed last man Gary Connolly to gallop over.

The Rhinos were scoring with every possession, Burrows grabbing his second try to make it 60-8 and Poching completed the rout with three minutes left.
