Wakefield Trinity Wildcats 6 Leeds Rhinos 32

17th June 2016

By Leeds Rhinos

Tries from Liam Sutcliffe, Mitch Achurch and Brad Singleton (2) secured a 32-6 win for the Leeds Rhinos and the first away win of the season against Wakefield Trinity Wildcats at Belle Vue with a personal haul of 20 points from Liam Sutcliffe.

Leeds Rhinos were looking to build on their promising 8-0 victory over Salford last week, bolstered by the return of Zak Hardaker and Ryan Hall to the side, which started in confident fashion, scoring in the third minute through Mitch Achurch.

WP – Home MPU

The Rhinos dominated the opening exchanges with strong carries from the forwards setting a platform for McGuire and Leeds back line to create opportunities. Achurch was first to put points on the board, running onto a pass from Danny McGuire to score to the left of the posts, giving his side the early 4-0 lead. Sutcliffe then made it 6-0 with his first conversion of the game.

Wakefield struggled early on to gain any field position, thanks in large to Leeds' suffocating defence and enthusiasm to keep the home side penned into their own half. Shortly after Achurch's opener, Leeds extended their lead with a penalty from Liam Sutcliffe, who would prove to be perfect in front of goal for the rest of the night, to go 8-0 up.

Despite Leeds' early dominance, it was the home side who answered back with a try they created from their own 30 meter line. Matty Ashurst made the initial break before the ball went through a number of hands to find former Rhinos player Ben Jones-Bishop, who finished well on the right flank to pull his side back into the proceedings.

Liam Finn added the extras from the sidelines to make it 6-8 but, before Wakefield could capitalise on their opening try, Leeds hit back from Sutcliffe again, this time from a penalty 20 meters out, cancelling out Finn's effort 10 minutes earlier.

On 32 minutes, Joel Moon left the field with a suspected concussion to be replaced by Ryan Hall, the winger having an immediate impact by tapping a high cross field kick from Rob Burrow back into the hands of Brad Singleton, who finished despite the attentions of a couple of Wakefield defenders to give his side a 14-6 lead with 6 minutes to go to the half. 

Sutcliffe was again accurate with the conversion to give Leeds a commanding 16-6 lead as the half came to a close, however there was still time for Wakefield's new signing David Fifita to have an impact. The forward seemingly not impressed with the contact made by three Leeds players in the tackle on 39 minutes, earning himself a 10 minute sin bin for throwing the ball at an injured Jamie-Jones Buchanan. 

The second half started in a similar vein with Leeds on the ascendancy early on through more combative play from the forwards, who once again put Leeds in attacking positions from the start. Wakefield were also guilty of giving away penalties for offside and interference at the play-the-ball, sending the penalty count heavily in Leeds' favour. 

Pressure told eventually on Wakefield's defence with Brad Singleton again the benefactor of some good play from Danny McGuire, who was influential all night with his kicking game and game line passing.

The Leeds number six sent Singleton crashing over the line from close range for his second try of the night, to make the scores 20-6. Sutcliffe then posted his fifth kick of the game to send Leeds into a 16 point lead at 22-6 on 47 minutes.

Leeds continued to make use of the interchange and a strong bench unit, bringing Jimmy Keinhorst into the action to replace a solid Beau Falloon and Adam Cuthbertson to replace Keith Galloway, as the Rhinos looked to build on their lead going into the final half hour. 

As Wakefield tried to plot a way back into the game, Leeds answered with more resolute defence, Luke Briscoe fielding a high ball before being trapped in goal and efforts in defence in the following set from the Rhinos resulting in a relieving penalty for the away side.

In the wet conditions, Leeds wasted no time in adding further points from the boot of Sutcliffe, who had now moved to the halves with Joel Moon leaving the field, Leeds taking full advantage of the follow up penalty committed by Wakefield 30 meters from their line to go 24-6 up. 

With the game slipping away from the home side and the penalty count going in favour of the Rhinos as they struggled to contain Leeds' attack, the Rhinos kept the scoreboard ticking over in the second half, Sutcliffe kicking for goal 5 minutes later on 60 minutes to make it 26-6.

As Wakefield tired from a mountain of defending, they then lost their second player to the sin bin in Bill Tupou for what looked like dangerous technique in the tackle, giving Leeds further chance to open up the home side.

To cap off his high scoring night, Liam Sutcliffe took a pass from Danny McGuire to score Leeds fourth try. McGuire had his third try assist of the night giving Sutcliffe a personal tally to 20 points with the resulting conversion. 

Leeds, who has breached the 30 point mark for only the third time this season, lead 32-6 and the scores didn't change again before the final hooter as they doggedly snuffed out any chance of a Wakefield try to maintain a second half clean sheet and two more points with their first away win of the season.
