Wakefield Wildcats 16 Leeds Rhinos 14

4th July 2014

By Leeds Rhinos

A last gasp try from Richard Owen denied the Rhinos victory at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium after Danny McGuire was denied a late winning try.

The Rhinos had to make a late change when skipper Kevin Sinfield was ruled out with a back injury following a pre-match test. Liam Sutcliffe, who was due to start at loose forward, moved into the halves along with new captain Danny McGuire, whilst Josh Walters celebrated his new three year contract with the club with his first start at loose forward.
Leeds included five teenagers in their squad with Rob Mulhern drafted onto the bench to join Robbie Ward and Elliot Minchella with Walters and Sutcliffe in the starting thirteen.

Wakefield enjoyed the lions share of possession in the opening quarter and looked like they had taken the lead when Chris Riley took an offload from Reece Lyne in the corner to score. However, the replays showed that Lyne had put his heel into touch and the score was disallowed.

Constant rain in the build up the match had left slippery conditions on the surface top and both teams were guilty of too much spilled ball, especially in contact. It was Wakefield who eventually broke the deadlock when Danny Washbrook chased through to touch down Tim Smith’s kick. Replays showed that he desperately stretched out his hand as he dived passed the ball but video referee Phil Bentham considered he got downward pressure on the ball and the try was awarded. Paul Sykes added the conversion to give his side a deserved 6-0 after 17 minutes.
Wakefield continued to apply pressure on the Rhinos line, aided by errors from the visitors, however Leeds showed good resolve in defence to keep them out.

The Rhinos finally managed to get a prolonged spell of pressure on the Wakefield line when Richard Owen spilled Sutcliffe’s towering bomb. Leeds then got a penalty on the home line and soon after Kallum Watkins cut through a gap out wide to score. Sutcliffe pulled his conversion attempt wide but Leeds were back in the game at 6-4 after 33 minutes.

Brian McDermott’s side then hit the front with a minute to go in the half when Tom Briscoe fielded a kick 15 metres from his own line. He controlled it well then passed to Ben Jones-Bishop and the full back matched his sensational effort from the win over Catalan five days earlier by bursting clear passed two would be tacklers and around the last man in defence to score. Sutcliffe missed the conversion attempt but his side led 8-6 at half time.

The second half was an equally tense affair with both teams looking to apply the killer blow but unable to build momentum that would bring the score. Just as in the first half, it was Wakefield who struck first when Pita Godinet earned his side a penalty and then sent Richard Mathers through a gap to score.

However, Leeds hit back after 67 minutes when McGuire’s cross field kick was plucked out of the air by Ryan Hall, who touched down in the same movement to level the score. Sutcliffe was on target this time to give his side a narrow 14-12 lead.

The game then hinged on a decision from video referee Phil Bentham. McGuire picked up a loose ball 60 metres from the Wakefield line and raced clear to score however the television official judged that Hall had knocked the ball on in the tackle, disallowing the try and giving Wakefield a scrum deep in Leeds territory. The Rhinos battled hard to keep the home side out but with two minutes to go they worked a move down the blindside and Richard Owen slid in at the corner. Sykes missed the conversion but his side were able to keep hold of possession for the final minute to maintain new Head Coach James Webster’s four game unbeaten run since taking charge.
