St Helens 12 Leeds Rhinos 20

1st March 2013

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos have produced a commanding performance to win at Langtree Park for the first time thanks to two tries from Ryan Hall and one from Kylie Leuluai.

St Helens have won their last five home meetings with Leeds. The Rhinos' last away win against the Saints was 14-10 on 28 March, 2008, at Knowsley Road.

The Rhinos overcame a major pile up on the M62 and a quick change of shirt before kick off to produce a strong first half against St Helens.

A year ago, the Champions were blown away by a red hot Saints side on their first visit to Langtree Park but they gave a much better account of themselves this time around. The Rhinos went in front early on when Kevin Sinfield kicked a penalty after three minutes for offside which followed the home side putting the kick off out on the full.

Saints grew in ascendency after that and got their reward for a spell of pressure on the Leeds lien when Jonny Lomax dummied inside and then held off two would be tacklers to touch down. Gary Wheeler missed the conversion so the lead remained a narrow 4-2 after nine minutes.

Both teams produced some bruising defence with big hits from the likes of Brett Delaney and Willie Manu from their respective teams the highlights of collisions. Saints had the best chance to extend their lead when they gained a repeat set near the Rhinos line but Anthony Laffranchi took a look up as he went to take a short ball in traffic and spilled the ball.

Leeds levelled the score when Sinfield kicked his 41st consecutive successful kick for Leeds after 22 minutes. It was his 32nd consecutive kick for club and country going back to the Autumn series with England and left him nine goals short of Liam Finn’s world record.

The Rhinos then hit the front after 29 minutes when Sinfield and Danny McGuire combined brilliantly to cut Saints open down the left and gave Ryan Hall the ball ten metres out and he was never going to be stopped. Sinfield missed the conversion attempt to end his run but his side now led 8-4.

The remainder of the first half saw more strong defence with Leeds have more of the possession but they could not capitalise on it to leave them just four points in front at the break.

The Rhinos missed out on an early try at the start of the second half when Ian Kirke was adjudged to have lost the ball as he crashed over the line by the video referee. Kylie Leuluai also had a great chance but lost possession near the Saints line after a repeat set from the visitors. 

Leeds had to defend stoutly after that as Saints finally clicked into their free flowing attacking style but brilliant cover tackles by Chris Clarkson and then Kallum Watkins prevented the score. 

The visitors then struck with two tries inside five minutes to seal the game. The first came from a cross field kick by Sinfield to Hall. The winger took the ball and kept his arms free to throw a one handed pass back inside that was tapped by a defenders hand as it fell. Leuluai controlled the ball with his toe and then picked it up to crash over. The video referee confirmed the score and Sinfield added the conversion. 

Two minutes later, a breath taking break by Rob Burrow got the Rhinos going forward before the ball was thrown wide and Moon did brilliantly to draw the cover to him and put Hall in for his second try of the game. Sinfield added the conversion to make it 20-4 after 64 minutes. 

Saints grabbed two late unconverted tries from Francis Meli but it could not take the gloss of a thoroughly professional performance from the Rhinos.
