Salford Red Devils 18 Leeds Rhinos 22

25th July 2014

By Leeds Rhinos

Tries from Zak Hardaker, Kallum Watkins, Carl Ablett and Stevie Ward helped secure victory for Leeds over Salford at the AJ Bell Stadium.

Despite having never tasted defeat at Salford in the summer era, the Rhinos travelled to the AJ Bell Stadium knowing they faced their toughest ever test against the men in red. Recent weeks have seen a resurgence from Iestyn Harris’ team as they look to snatch a late play off spot.

WP – Home MPU

The early stages were a cagey affair with New Zealand full back Kevin Locke impressing with a couple of dangerous breaks on his home debut whilst the half backs of Rangi Chase and Theo Fages proved a handful as usual.

The home side took the lead after 14 minutes after they had earned a repeat set by trapping Leeds in goal.  They kept up the pressure and Junior Sa’u reacted quickest to chase through after Fages put a kick towards the Leeds line. Ryan Hall appeared to have done enough to deny him the opening try but video referee Phil Bentham adjudged the pair had touched the ball down at the same time and awarded the try. Former Leeds Carnegie player Josh Griffin added the conversion to give his side an early 6-0 lead.

The Rhinos hit back eight minutes later with a spectacular dive from Zak Hardaker to touch down Danny McGuire’s through kick just in time before the ball rolled out of play. Hardaker converted the try himself to level the score.
Leeds then hit the front straight from the re-start when Aiton and Watkins combined to put Tom Briscoe away down the wing. He made 70 metres before passing back inside to Watkins who rode two tackles before going over to score. Hardaker was on target again to make it 12-6.

Salford had a try disallowed soon after for a forward pass however they did level the game with the final play of the first half. Ryan Hall knocked on a towering bomb as he tried to collect the kick under pressure and from the ensuing scrum, Chase put in a kick between the posts that Fages raced through to touch down. Josh Griffin kicked the conversion to make it 12-12 at the break.

The Rhinos came out determined to make their mark in the second half and crossed for a third try when Carl Ablett spun out of a tackle before dragging two men over the line with him to score. Hardaker added the conversion to make it 18-12 to the visitors.

Just as in the first half, Leeds managed to increase the pressure with consecutive tries. Their fourth was a great team effort as firstly Tom Briscoe got his team away from their own line before Liam Sutcliffe continued the move and finally Stevie Ward stepped through the cover and raced clear to score. Hardaker missed the conversion attempt but his side had a ten point lead.

The gap was cut on the hour mark when Salford hit back through Jordan Walne bumped off two tackles near the Rhinos line and raced through to score. Josh Griffin added the conversion to put his side within a try of levelling the game.

Hardaker had a chance to give his side breathing space with a penalty when Harrison Hansen stripped the ball from Jamie Peacock however his effort was wide of the target, setting up a tense finale. 

Salford threw everything at Leeds in the closing stages but the Rhinos produced some breath taking defence to keep them out and hold on for a well earned victory.
