Salford Red Devils 14 Leeds Rhinos 10

9th April 2016

By Leeds Rhinos

Late tries from Keith Galloway and Ashton Golding proved too little, too late for the Rhinos as they lost out 14-10 to the Salford Red Devils at the AJ Bell Stadium.

The Rhinos made the trip across the M62 without Ryan Hall, Joel Moon, Tom Briscoe, Stevie Ward, Brett Delaney, Brett Ferres, Josh Walters, Jimmy Keinhorst and Adam Cuthbertson, the latter three being the latest to be ruled out.

WP – Home MPU

There was welcome news in the return from injury by Ashton Golding, who was drafted onto the wing allowing Liam Sutcliffe to move into centre to replace Moon.

The Rhinos were looking to avoid their first defeat at Salford since the 1993 Regal Trophy loss at the old Willows ground.

Leeds started the game in strong form as they asked plenty of questions of the Red Devils defence, especially through the kicking of Danny McGuire. Leeds forced the home side to drop out three times with a combination of clever kicks and good chase. After a spell of 24 consecutive tackles on the home line, Robert Lui took a kick from McGuire over his head and was able to end the spell of pressure.
 
Salford were then brutally clinical on their first sight of the Leeds line. Having gained a penalty for offside 40 metres from the Rhinos line, they pushed home their advantage and hooker Logan Tomkins spotted a gap and darted over from dummy half. Michael Dobson added the conversion to give his side a 6-0 lead after 25 minutes.
 
The game was played in steady rain and that certainly had a bearing on the handling as both teams were guilty of handing over cheap possession. Salford extended their lead when Salford full back Gareth O’Brien put in a brilliant spiralling high kick that drafted away from Zak Hardaker in the rain, the ball was spilled and Ash Handley regathered but was penalised for offside. Dobson opted to go for goal in the conditions and gave his side an 8-0 lead at half time.
 
The second half followed a similar pattern to the first. Leeds enjoyed a lot of possession but were unable to find a way through the Salford line. On two occasions the Rhinos were held up over the line through Kallum Watkins and Brad Singleton were unable to get the tries.
 
In contrast, Salford got the crucial second try of the game when Robert Lui kicked a 40:20 to put his side deep in the Rhinos territory. The half back, who returned from injury for the home side then went over for the try as he dummied before cutting back inside to score between the posts. Dobson added the conversion to make it 14-0.
 
In the final ten minutes of the game, the Rhinos rallied. Firstly, Keith Galloway crossed for his first try for the club when he proved too powerful from close range having just returned to the field. Hardaker added the conversion to make it 14-6.
 
Leeds then set up a tense finish when Ashton Golding finished in the corner for his first try for the club. Hardaker was unable to add the conversion but it was now 14-10 with 134 seconds left.
 
The Rhinos kept the ball alive but when O’Brien beat Handley to the winger kick ahead of the hooter the result was sealed and the Reds had secured the victory.
