Wakefield Trinity Wildcats 24 Leeds Rhinos 31

26th July 2013

By Leeds Rhinos

A dramatic ending at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium saw the Rhinos secure a 31-24 victory, with late tries from Carl Ablett and Rob Burrow.

The game was set up perfectly following a hard earned, but narrow victory, against the Wildcats just seven days earlier at Headingley Carnegie and this was an equally hard fought contest.

WP – Home MPU

Wakefield were dealt an early blow with the news that their captain Danny Kirmond, who had been injured in the game at Headingley Carnegie a week earlier, was ruled out just before kick off, meaning former Rhino Ali Lauitiiti started the game.

Leeds welcomed back their own captain Kevin Sinfield, after five weeks on the side-lines with a thumb injury, and they also gave a debut to another of the club’s promising Academy products, James Duckworth, who started on the wing, with Ben Jones-Bishop going to full back and Zak Hardaker coming into the centres.

The Rhinos put the Wildcats under pressure from the kick off and Joel Moon looked like he had given his side a lead but the pass from Hall was judged to be forward. The Wildcats then struck for their first try through hooker, Paul Aiton, who picked up a loose ball before holding off the Leeds defence to go over for the opening try. Former Leeds player Lee Smith added the conversion but then missed the opportunity to extend the lead further when he missed a penalty for offisde.

Leeds had a number of missed chances to get back in the game, firstly Carl Ablett crossed over the tryline, but referee Ben Thaler ruled there had been an obstruction from Brad Singleton and then Kylie Leuluai came close but was held up over the line by Richard Mathers.

The Rhinos finally broke through the Wildcats’ defence with seven minutes left to play in the half. Duckworth marked his debut with his side’s opening try, taking a long pass from fellow Academy graduate Liam Sutcliffe to snatch the try. Sinfield successfully added the conversion to level the score before the break.

Wakefield started the second half strongly and it took them just five minutes for them to regain the lead when Ali Lauitiiti and Lee Smith combined to keep the ball alive and then scrum-half Tim Smith sent Aiton over for his second try and Smith's goal made it 12-6.

The Rhinos needed a response and it came in the 57th minute with a superb effort from Ben Jones-Bishop. The full-back picked up Tim Smith's grubber kick just five metres from his own line and then kicked on a gear to sprint clear off the chasing Wakefield defence to go virtually the full length of the field for the try.

Sinfield was on target with the conversion and he then gave his team the edge when he slotted over a drop goal on 64 minutes. This narrow lead was soon extended though when Ryan Hall sent Joel Moon over in the corner and Sinfield added the touchline conversion.

Leeds had little chance to build on their lead though as the homeside registered two tries in three minutes. First Justin Poore was sent over and then Frankie Mariano benefited from a superb pass from Mathers to go through a gap in the Leeds defence and score. Smith’s conversion made the score 25-19 to the Wildcats with 8 minutes to go.

There was further drama to come however as the Champions came back to snatch the victory. Carl Ablett was the first to cross when he dived on a Sinfield grubber kick and Sinfield then added the conversion in front of the posts to restore the one point lead.

With the clock ticking down the Rhinos looked like they had done enough to secure a narrow win but in the final play of the game Rob Burrow ensured a more flattering scoreline for the visitors when he dived under a tackle to score. Sinfield added the extra points to seal the 31-24 win.
