Leeds Rhinos v Salford Red Devils, Friday 17th July, kick off 8pm

9th July 2015

By Leeds Rhinos

The sixth annual Armed Forces Day will take place at the Leeds Rhinos v Salford Red Devils game at Headingley Carnegie on Friday 17th July.

The day of appreciation was introduced in 2010 and has been a regular fixture in the Rhinos calendar ever since. As part of the celebrations Royal Navy Rugby League will play their annual QinetiQ State Of Origin fixture as a curtain raiser to the Rhinos clash with Salford.

WP – In Article MPU

The concept of the QinetiQ State of Origin is that the country is divided north to south with players based in Ships and Units East of Southampton representing the Eastern Command, the Blues, and those West of Southampton represent the Western Command, the Maroons.

As well as the game forming the centrepiece of the celebrations there will be plenty more activity on the day to mark Armed Forces Day. RNRL event organiser Warrant Officer Andy Cooper has arranged for bands from the Army and Royal Marines to perform around the stadium and on the pitch. Ronnie the Rhino will once again be showing his support for the Armed Forces by joining the Royal Marines for his now famous abseil down the South Stand and Sky Dive Great Britain will be parachuting in to the stadium (weather permitting) to deliver the match ball. To honour the service men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country there will also be a minute's silence prior to kick off.

Volunteers will be at the stadium to collect for the two charities – the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, who are a grant making charity and provide valuable funds for naval and military charities that work with families and veterans, especially those experiencing difficulty with child support, ill-health, old age or hard times, and also UK4U, who deliver Christmas boxes to Servicemen and Servicewomen deployed on Operations at Christmas, whether in the Royal Navy, Army or the Royal Air Force, as a gift from the nation to thank them for sacrificing Christmas with their families and loved ones. To find out more about these charities visit them at www.uk4u.organd www.rnrmc.org.uk

Leeds Rhinos 70 Salford Red Devils 6

17th July 2015

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos went back top of the First Utility Super League with an twelve try victory over Salford Red Devils at Headingley Carnegie.

The challenge had been laid down to the Rhinos by St Helens 24 hours earlier and they took on Salford knowing that they needed a win to go back top of the First Utility Super League.
 
Kevin Sinfield was ruled out before the game with a shoulder injury and with Jamie Peacock rested, the Rhinos needed to find their stride quickly and they did just that.
 
The Rhinos crossed for the first of six unanswered first half tries when Danny McGuire managed to spin in the tackle and went over to score beside the post. That was quickly followed four minutes later when Adam Cuthbertson made Salford pay for another cheap penalty as he start alert as Paul Aiton cut back against the run of play to put him over. Zak Hardaker converted both tries to make it 12-0 after as many minutes.
 
Salford were then reduced to 12 men when Adrian Morley was sent to the sin bin for a high tackle on Rob Burrow. It was to prove a costly indiscretion for the former Rhinos man as Leeds ran in three tries whilst he was off the field.
 
The first was from Kallum Watkins, his tenth try in ten appearances against Salford having been a ballboy at The Willows as a youngster. Hardaker added a brilliant touchline conversion to increase the lead to 18-0 after 22 minutes.
 
Brett Delaney timed his run to perfection to collect McGuire’s through kick near the line for a well deserved try before Hardaker bent down low to take Carl Ablett’s falling offload with his fingertips just ahead of Ben Jones-Bishop and the full back had a simple run in for the try. He converted both tries to give his side a 30-0 lead after 30 minutes just as Morley returned to the field.
 
It was not long before the lead was increased further as Leeds made the most of a penalty near the Salford line and quick hands along the line put Ryan Hall in space to score.
 
The first half rout was completed with a minute to go when Joel Moon made the most of McGuire and the impressive Jimmy Keinhorst to go through and score against his former club. Hardaker converted the latter to make the half time score 40-0.
 
The Rhinos carried on where they had left off at the start of the second half.  Salford had a try disallowed for Ben Jones-Bishop after Junior Sau’s last pass was called forward and Leeds went straight up the other end and Hardaker finished off a fine break by Ash Handley.  He converted his own try.
 
Salford did get a try back through Niall Evalds after a kick hit the foot of the posts and he slid in but it was just a brief reprieve. Hall soon crossed for his second try of the game, starting and finishing a move that covered 60 metres.
 
Jimmy Keinhorst got a well deserved try after he supported the break from Carl Ablett. Josh Walters scored his first try of the season in bizarre fashion. Having ducked on a desperate tackle on the line, he popped up sat on the try line and put the ball down between his legs. Hardaker converted the Walters try to give his side a 60-6 lead with 16 minutes to go.
 
The Rhinos kept up the try scoring in the final stages as Ablett now got himself over the line, holding off two would be tacklers to touch down.

In the final minute Ablett crossed for his second try of the game to complete the rout and take the Rhinos back to the Super League summit.
