London Broncos 24 Leeds Rhinos 32

25th May 2002

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos moved back into second place in the Tetley’s Rugby Super League table with a 32-24 win defeat of London Broncos at Griffin Park on Saturday, although they had to come from 18-6 behind to take the points.

Tony Martin had opened the scoring with a penalty before in-form Mark Calderwood touched down for Leeds, Ben Walker converting.

Martin then added his own converted try, and kicked the goal following Dennis Moran's score, with a Sylvain Houles effort giving the home side a half tie lead of 18-6.

But the Rhinos hit back with three tries inside the opening 11 minutes of the second period, through Marcus St Hilaire, Wayne McDonald and Walker, to take a 22-18 lead before Tonie Carroll added a further try for a 26-18 advantage.

Mat Toshack's converted score cut the gap to two points, but Ryan Sheridan's try sealed the win.

London have already defeated St Helens, Bradford and Halifax at Griffin Park this season, and were looking to repeat their defeat of Leeds at the venue in 1995, and an early Martin penalty gave them a 2-0 advantage.

But Mark Calderwood raced in to score his ninth try in eight games to put Leeds in front, and Ben Walker added the conversion for a 6-2 scoreline, having previously missed a penalty.

Martin then won the race to stand off Rob Purdham's kick on the quarter mark to touch down, and his conversion – his 28th consecutive successful goal – edged the Broncos back in front.

Two minutes later, Dennis Moran snatched a trademark interception try from a Walker pass and ran the length of the field to touch down, Martin again adding the extras.

The scrum half then sent in Sylvain Houles to give the Broncos an 18-6 interval lead, although Martin's attempt at the world record for successive kicks ended at 29 when he missed the goal.

But Leeds, who has beaten Bradford and Wigan in their last two outings, came out a different side in the second period, with Marcus St Hilaire going over from a Walker pass after Willie Poching had regained possession with an interception.

A Sheridan 40-20 then created the position for Wayne McDonald to force his way over for his second try in three weeks, Walker cutting the gap to two points with the goal.

On 51 minutes, the Australian playmaker supported a Tonie Carroll break to ad his own try and convert to push the Rhinos back into a lead which they would never lose.

Carroll himself powered in on 57 minutes following Rob Burrow's play and, at 26-18, the Broncos hardly knew what had hit them.

They managed to respond through Mat Toshack, who reacted first when St Hilaire missed Steele Retchless' kick, but Sheridan had the last laugh to calm Leeds' nerves and seal the win by cutting his way under the posts on 68 minutes.
