Salford City Reds 16 Leeds Rhinos 42

9th August 2013

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds produced a ruthless performance to score seven tries including one from debutant Elliot Minchella but were dealt another injury blow when Jimmy Keinhorst suffered a serious arm injury.

The Rhinos were dealt a blow before kick off when Ryan Hall was ruled out through illness forcing a late change that saw Liam Sutcliffe revert to the wing and Brad Singleton start at loose forward. It was the first time in 77 games that Hall had not been in the Rhinos side and it meant that Alex Foster had to be drafted onto the bench having initially been named as 18th man.

The opening stages were a cagey affair however it was the Rhinos who struck first after twenty minutes. Sutcliffe took Burrow’s pass just inside the Reds half and he galloped clear. He could have gone in for the try himself have beaten the last man with some clever footwork, however he unselfishly passed to Kallum Watkins to give the centre his 14th try of the season. Kevin Sinfield added the conversion on his 400th Super League appearance.

The lead was double two minutes later, this time it was Zak Hardaker with the dazzling footwork as he bamboozled Lee Gaskell before sprinting for the corner and touching down. Sinfield was again on target to make it 12-0.

Salford to their credit did not let that early set back put them off their stride and Marc Sneyd’s crossfield kick was collected by Ashley Gibson who went over to score against his former club. Sneyd added the conversion to cut the deficit in half.

However, Leeds responded in ruthless fashion with two tries in five minutes. The first came from Rob Burrow, with a trademark effort from the scrum half as he spotted a gap and raced clear before stepping back inside to scamper over between the posts. Burrow then turned provider as he spotted a well timed run from Ablett, popped up the pass and Ablett came charging through to score. Sinfield added both conversions to make it 24-6.

Salford battled hard in the closing stages of the half to get another score back but some good defence from Leeds kept them out and maintained their advantage until the break.

The Rhinos extended their lead just seven minutes into the second half. Zak Hardaker created the score by taking a quick tap on the 20 metre line and breaking 50 metres up field. Ablett maintained the momentum in support and then passed to Ben Jones-Bishop for the winger to score his eighth try in eight games since returning to the side. Sinfield added the conversion again.

Salford had more of the possession after that score and eventually made it count when Lee Gaskell got some space outwide and just managed to beat Hardaker to score in the corner. Sneyd was off target with the conversion attempt.

Leeds responded once again when Watkins crossed for his second try of the game following good work by Sutcliffe, after he latched onto a loose ball near his own line and raced 80 metres up field. He drew the tackle from the chasing runner before passing over his shoulder to Watkins to score. Sinfield kept up his 100% night with the boot to extend the lead even further.

The two sides traded tries after that with Theo Fages being awarded a score despite the complaints to referee George Stokes about the build up from the Leeds players however the Rhinos then hit back with a debut try for Minchella. The 17 year old showed strength beyond his years to power over from close range. Both kickers convert their team’s tries, the latter leaving Sinfield on 2,999 career points in Super League games and make the final score 42-16.
