Wakefield Wildcats 28 Leeds Rhinos 18

14th February 2010

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos lost out to Wakefield Trinity Wildcats at the Hearwell Stadium as they fell short of a late winning rally like they had done last season.

Leeds were unable to pull off a great escape for the second year running at the Hearwell Stadium, the Wildcats ending their home hoodoo against their derby rivals with a first Belle Vue victory in the summer era.

WP – Home MPU

Twenty points down approaching the hour, in part due to the mercurial skills of previous thorn Danny Brough, the Rhinos posted two stunning touchdowns in four minutes to seemingly set up a consecutive potential home heartbreaker.

But the visitors were scuppered by a home penalty to complete the scoring on an afternoon where indiscipline proved costly, the visitors ending up 17-7 down in the penalty count and having skipper Kevin Sinfield despatched to the sin bin in the 51st minute by rookie Super League referee James Child.

Rhinos flattered to deceive, some of their handling when they were in full flow was breathtaking but too often they squandered possession cheaply early in the count against thoroughly determined and committed opposition and they never really got on the front foot for long enough.

In the absence of Brett Delaney, Rhinos drafted teenager Kallum Watkins into the centre while Greg Eastwood made his first start for ankle victim Carl Ablett, Ian Kirke returning for Luke Burgess.

For the hosts, Terry Newton returned on the bench after his bicep injury suffered against his former club on Boxing Day and Matt Blaymire did not make the 17 for his first start of the campaign after recovering from shoulder surgery.

On a perfect playing surface, which Rhinos seemed to relish initially – Ryan Hall producing a power packed run – Wakefield took an early stranglehold on the contest that they did not relinquish for the bulk of the half.

Leeds struggled to cope with the offloads of impressive prop Shane Tronc and centre Daryl Millard as Wildcats established early supremacy.

Sam Obst’s grubber forced Scott Donald in goal and from the drop out the visitors’ line was severely tested, Tevita Leo-Latu and Glenn Morrison just held short. From another Millard offload, Wakefield ran a power play, Keith Senior and Rob Burrow combining to deny Morrison.

The mounting pressure told when Tronc again got the ball away in midfield, Danny Brough supported and set Ben Jeffries in motion, Sean Gleeson claiming the try by the posts, Brough converting. From a scrum in the 11th minute on the Wakefield 30, Leeds had their first scoring opportunity, Jason Demetriou pulling off a fine ankle tap on Danny McGuire but Wakefield should have increased their lead on the counter, Leo-Latu knocking on over the try line from Jeffries inside pass.

Despite their stuttering attack Leeds should have got on the board when Senior broke down the left, Danny Brough getting back to haul down Rob Burrow with a try saver of note. Leeds squandered possession early in the tackle count and Brough made it 8-0 with a penalty from in front on the 26th minute after Rhinos were caught offside in front of their posts.

Leo-Latu snapped up a loose ball on a 50 metre charge and Leeds were again caught offside as Trinity spread the ball, Jeffries ghosting between Senior and Jamie Jones-Buchanan to make it 12-0, Brough missing the conversion.

Rhinos hit back in the 33rd minute, again following a scrum, Burrow, Kevin Sinfield and Jones-Buchanan with a fine pass sending McGuire to the posts, Sinfield converting.

Ian Kirke knocked on and Matt Diskin was penalised three minutes before the break, Brough taking the two points on offer from 30 metres out to make it 14-6. Rhinos forced a drop out at the end of the half but Wakefield took in a two score lead at the break.

It looked as though that would be partially wiped out at the end of the first set of the second period, Leeds forcing a knock on from Aaron Murphy on his own ten but from the scrum, as McGuire looked set to send in Senior, Brough intercepted and went 90 metres, evading McGuire and a despairing Hall to establish a lead that ultimately proved to be too far, not least when the scrum half then added the conversion from wide out to make it 20-6.

Ali Lauitiiti’s off-load got Rhinos on the front foot in a move carried on by Burrow and McGuire but impressive Dale Morton’s tackle forced the ball from Senior.

Brent Webb allowed Brough to steal possession at a play the ball, Ian Kirke was just stopped short and Leeds then passed the ball forward from acting half back signalling that it was probably not going to be their day.

That was exacerbated when the skipper was given a ten minute break but the defence in response went up a notch by the 12 men.

Raiding down the right Senior thought that he had put Hall clear only for the winger to be re-called for a forward pass, Webb’s needless questioning of the touch judge turning a scrum into a penalty, on the end of which Millard rose serenely to gather Brough’s cross kick, Brough goaling.

On the back of a rare penalty, Rhinos responded and began to enjoy their best spell; Jamie Peacock’s drive seeing McGuire send in Scott Donald with sweet long pass, Burrow adding the extras from wide out.

Donald was in again five minutes later at the end of some mesmerising inter-play; Eastwood, McGuire, Sinfield, Burrow and Senior setting the position for Peacock, McGuire, Sinfield, Eastwood twice and Watkins to get his outside man across.

Sinfield’s touchline goal made it 26-18 and there was a touch of déjà vu in the air especially when Wakefield elected to tap a kickable penalty with 13 minutes to go and the chance went begging.

On a power play, Morton superbly halted the dummying Senior forcing a turnover and, when Leeds conceded consecutive penalties, Brough did elect to go for the two, landing his sixth goal to make it 28-18.

Leeds regained the short kick off and Danny Buderus, Sinfield twice, Jones-Buchanan, McGuire and Peacock got Burrow in space, Gleeson making the despairing tackle and forcing a knock on.

Another Peacock thrust saw Sinfield chip to the wing but Donald could not gather and with that went the game, Brough still having time to miss another shot at goal.
