Salford Red Devils v Leeds Rhinos Sunday 12th April, kick off 1pm

7th April 2015

By Leeds Rhinos

It is first versus third this Sunday as Leeds Rhinos travel to Salford’s AJ Bell Stadium for a mouth watering clash with the Red Devils as two of the form teams in the competition go head to head.

Iestyn Harris' side have only lost once in seven games and come into the game on the back of impressive wins over Huddersfield and Wigan during Easter that has seen them propelled above both those sides.

The Red Devils could be without former Rhino Weller Hauraki who picked up a Grade C charge in the win over the Giants and then a Grade B charge after being sent off in the final stages of the victory over Wigan on Easter Monday. The home side could also be without play maker Rangi Chase who will defend a Grade E charge at the RFL disciplinary before Sunday's game. However, the squad assembled by Dr Marwan Koukash will be confident of adding the scalp of the Rhinos to their list of achievements so far this season with Ben Jones-Bishop, Darrell Griffin and Liam Hood all keen to perform against their former club. 

Rhinos centre Joel Moon will be hoping to recover from the rib injury he suffered against Wakefield to face his old club whilst his fellow centre Kallum Watkins will be looking to continue his impressive recent form against Salford. In his career he has scored nine tries in nine meetings with the team he served as a ballboy in his school days however that figure includes seven in the last five meetings with a score in each game. 

The game is now a 1pm kick to avoid a clash with the Manchester United v Manchester City derby game at Old Trafford, which kicks off at 4pm.

Salford Red Devils 18 Leeds Rhinos 28

12th April 2015

By Leeds Rhinos

The Rhinos maintained their lead at the top of the First Utility Super League with a hard earned 28-18 victory over Salford Red Devils.

Salford strong form going into this game had seen Iestyn Harris’ side rise to third place so the Rhinos knew they would be in for a battle however neither side could have expected the tough conditions that the game was played in.
 
Right from Kevin Sinfield’s kick off it was obvious the gusting wind was going to play a huge part in the game and so it turned out. The opening quarter was a battle of attrition with defences on top, in particular the home side who produced some outstanding goal line defence to keep the Rhinos out. However, the pressure eventually began to tell and Jamie Peacock powered his way over from close range to open the scoring. Sinfield added the conversion to make it 6-0 after 23 minutes.
 
Salford responded well after that set back and soon found themselves in front. Theo Fages was a dangerman for them as he broke clear before offloading to Lama Tasi near the Rhinos line to score.
 
The home side then hit the front when Niall Evalds evaded the attempted tackle by Joel Moon before racing through to score. Dobson added the conversion to give his side a 12-6 lead.
 
Leeds soon hit back when Peacock crossed for two tries in a game for only the second time in his career when he was quickest to react to McGuire’s grubber kick and raced through to dive on the loose ball. Sinfield was on target again to level the score.
 
The Rhinos re-took the lead on the stroke of half time in bizarre fashion.  Sutcliffe’s kick stopped in the wind allowing Stevie Ward to hack ahead and Ash Handley dived on the ball to score. Sinfield was unable to convert into the wind but the Rhinos lead 16-12 at the break.
 
Salford came out early at the start of the second half, obviously keen to put the Rhinos back under pressure but it was the visitors who struck first in the second half. Joel Moon, against his former club, broke through 40 metres out before passing to Rob Burrow to cross for the try. Sinfield was on target this time and his side now held a ten point lead.
 
Once again Salford came back at the Rhinos and they used the conditions to their advantage when Dobson’s high hanging kick gave Evalds time to chase through and out jump Ashton Golding to score. Dobson added the conversion and the game was back in the balance at 22-18.
 
However, crucially the Rhinos almost immediately with Cuthbertson offloading to put Burrow away. He was hauled down on the Devils 20 metre line but Hardaker spotted that there was no one at marker for the home side and he picked up from dummy half and raced through to score. Sinfield added the conversion to restore the ten point lead.
 
Leeds went close through McGuire and Handley after that but they were worthy winners and held up to secure a 28-18 victory.
