St Helens 54 Leeds Rhinos 18

9th September 2006

By Leeds Rhinos

Despite two tries from Scott Donald and Clinton Toopi’s first for the club, Leeds suffered an embarrasing 54-18 defeat at Knowsley Road.

The Rhinos suffered an embarrasing 54-18 defeat against St Helens after being hit by a Jamie Lyon blitz at Knowsley Road. The home side opened the scoring after just through minutes when Keiron Cunningham released Jamie Lyon with a reverse pass and the reigning Man of Steel stepped his way through to the line. Jordan Tansey seemed to be harshly done to when he lost control of the ball near his line with two men in the tackle. But St Helens were in a clinical mood and were not going to miss the opportunity to extend the lead. Saints moved the ball across the field and Sean Long got their second try.

The Rhinos were having a nightmare night and it got worse when a poor kick chase allowed Francis Meli time and space five metres from his own line and he set off down field, beating Tansey as he chased back to score in the corner. Sean Long then turned provider as he released Jamie Lyon for his second try before the Australian completed his hat trick off a clever kick through by Jon Wilkin. The disappointing half was completed when Wilkin, Pryce and Lyon combined to release Ade Gardner down the touchline to score in the corner. With the game over as a contest the Rhinos had to show their mettle in the second half and they did with a much improved performance. Scott Donald crossed for a try on the hour which Sinfield eventually converted after problems with his kicking tee. But Saints were looking to celebrate being League Leaders in style and they continued to mount up the scoreline.

Francis Meli crossed after Clinton Toopi had attempted an intercept and then Paul Wellens just beat Scott Donald as he broke through from 40 metres out to score between the posts. Saints were running hot now and they finished with a flurry as Paul Wellens touched down for his second try off Long's kick. Then five minutes from the end Cunningham created another score as he offloaded on last tackle, Lyon then fed Gardner who scored on touchline. Former Leeds prop Paul Anderson, who will retire at the end of the season, then kicked the conversion from touchline. However, the Rhinos showed real spirit and continued to play until the final hooter and finished off with two late tries. Firstly, Scott Donald latched onto a kick through by Burrow. The in the last second of the game, Donald chased a high kick by Burrow again however this time the ball bounced loose and Clinton Toopi was on hand to score his first try for the club. Sinfield converted both to make the final score 54-18.
