Warrington Wolves 19 Leeds Rhinos 18

5th July 2013

By Leeds Rhinos

The Rhinos lost out to a late Lee Briers drop goal at Halliwell Jones Stadium despite scoring four tries and will take a lot of pride from the loss against Tony Smith’s high flying side.

On their last two visits to the Halliwell Jones in the league, the Rhinos have suffered heavy defeats and many experts were predicting a straight forward win for the Wolves after their impressive form recently has seen them mount a challenge once again for the League Leaders Shield. 

WP – Home MPU

The Rhinos were unchanged from the side that won at Widnes with Alex Foster set for only his second appearance off the bench. Warrington welcomed back England international Chris Hill to the front row after he missed the win at Bradford the previous week.  

The Rhinos were braced for a barnstorming performance from the Cup holders after Tony Smith had rested players the previous week to be ready for Leeds and the home side opened the scoring after just seven minutes with some quick thinking from hooker Micky Higham at dummy half. He initially looked to get the pass away but with no support available he immediately opted for a grubber kick off the inside of his boot when completely wrong footed the Leeds defence and he raced through to score. Brett Hodgson added the conversion to give his side a 6-0 lead.

Leeds responded almost immediately and scored within two minutes. The try was created by a sensational pass by Joel Moon out of the back of his hand to Ryan Hall, and the winger had the simple job of taking the pass and scampering over for the try. Zak Hardaker sliced his conversion attempt wide.

The Rhinos hit the front after 13 minutes when Liam Sutcliffe celebrated his new four year contract with the club by scoring his sixth try in eight appearances. The young stand off latched onto a loose pass from Warrington and raced down field to score from 80 metres out. Once again Hardaker was off target but his side held a narrow 8-6 lead.

Warrington then produced a prolonged passage of play in the Rhinos quarter as they looked to force an error from the visitors. However, some desperate goal line defence kept them out and the closest they got was a disallowed try for Higham after video referee Phil Bentham spotted that Chris Hill knocked on at the line.

The second half got off to a near perfect start for the Rhinos when Ryan Hall spotted a pass outwide, juggled with it initially and then set off on a sensational run, the full length of the field, handing off Chris Riley who had made a valiant effort to race from the opposite wing to try and stop the try. Hardaker was off target again but his side now led 12-6.

Warrington were always going to have a period when they gained the momentum of the game and they did that half way through the second half with Higham running the show for the home side. They eventually got the equalising score when Stefan Ratchford spotted a gap from dummy half and forced his way over. Hodgson added the conversion to level the game.

Once again the young Rhinos responded to the challenge and came up with another score. The try was beautifully crafted down the short side and Hardaker and Sutcliffe combined before the stand off put the full back in to score and he ran around to give himself an easier kick, which he added to make it 18-18.

Warrington then set up a grandstand finish when Monaghan knocked down Briers’ crossfield kick and Hodgson was on hand to gather the ball and touch down. He converted his own try to level the game with 15 minutes to go.

Leeds, who lost Mitch Achurch, Brad Singleton and Ian Kirke to injuries during the game, dug deep once again and kept the Wolves out, twice forcing Lee Briers to push his drop goal attempts wide. However, the home side got one last chance with less than a minute to go and this time Briers made no mistake to give his side a narrow 19-18 win.
