Salford City Reds 12 Leeds Rhinos 30

18th March 2005

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds overcame spirited Salford at The Willows to maintain their 100% start to the season and extend their unbeaten Super League run to 19 matches.

Leeds coach Tony Smith changed the Leeds pack due to Gareth Ellis and Chris McKenna being ruled out through injury and brought Willie Poching in at second row and Jamie Jones-Buchanan in at loose forward.

Sloppy defending by Salford allowed Senior and Lauitiiti to work the ball out wide on the left to Bai, and the winger showed great footwork to weave his way through and ground.  Kevin Sinfield, who was outstanding from start to finish, converted from a difficult angle before Leeds extended their lead 10 minutes later.

A high kick from scrum-half Burrow was tapped back by Lauitiiti, collected by Sinfield and played out to Senior.
The in-form Great Britain centre found Bai out wide and more delightful footwork took him close to the line before a perfect close-range offload allowed Lauitiiti to crash over the whitewash from close range.

Sinfield again successfully converted before Salford threw themselves a lifeline in the 20th minute when Baldwin showed fierce determination to shrug off the attention of three Leeds players to cross the line in the left corner.
Stuart Dickens converted, but Leeds remained in control, and although Chev Walker had an effort disallowed, substitute McDermott was soon on hand to finish off an excellent pass from Sinfield, who again converted.

After a scrappy start to the second period, Leeds again breached the home rearguard when Senior collected a high kick before grounding in the left corner to give his side further breathing space. Sinfield then goaled superbly from close to the touchline.

The outstanding Senior then created another opening which allowed Burrow to scamper over, before Sinfield’s conversion handed Leeds a 30-6 advantage.

Walker then made a lung-bursting run which saw him stopped by Anthony Stewart, who was subsequently sin-binned by referee Ian Smith for not allowing Walker to play the ball.

With five minutes remaining, winger David Hodgson briefly raised home spirits when he grounded in the corner, and although Luke Robinson converted admirably, Leeds had long since secured the points.
