Warrington Wolves 37 Leeds Rhinos 18

8th June 2012

By Leeds Rhinos

The Rhinos suffered a second consecutive defeat in the Stobart Super League against Warrington Wolves. Leeds conceded five tries in the opening 28 minutes and despite an improved second half display it proved to be too big of a gap for them to fight back from.

Leeds travelled to Warrington looking to bounce back from their heavy defeat to Wigan Warriors seven days earlier against the team in second place.  They were without Danny McGuire, who sustained an injury in that defeat which meant Stevie Ward was brought into the side for his fourth game of the season.  Ben Jones-Bishop also returned to the starting line up and Darrell Griffin was named on the bench for the first time since the St Helens fixture.

There was a heavy downpour of rain at the Halliwell Jones Stadium that continued for the majority of the game and the Rhinos found themselves playing into a heavy wind in the first half.  Warrington, who were also coming into the game on the back of defeat, could not have made a better start by taking the lead within the first minute of the game.  Ryan Atkins made the break before offloading to Chris Riley, the winger then put in a grubber kick which fortunately deflected into the hands of Brent Waterhouse who crossed in the left corner on 45 seconds and Brett Hodgson added the conversion.  Minutes later the Wolves were in again when Briers and Hodgson combined to spread the ball out across the Leeds line to Riley for a try in at the corner.

Nothing seemed to be going Leeds’ way and Warrington dominated possession in the first twenty minutes and it was not long before Gareth O’Brien extended the lead for the hosts after collecting a reverse kick from Briers to run in under the posts.  Once again Hodgson converted to put his side 18-0 ahead.  There was a further blow for the Rhinos when Brent Webb was forced to leave the field after sustaining a leg injury following a collision with his own team mate Carl Ablett.

There was no let up for Leeds and soon O’Brien got across for another for the homeside.  Waterhouse and Mickey Higham got Wolves in a good attacking position before another kick from Briers was pounced on by O’Brien who just managed to get his fingers on the ball before it went out of play.  After a consultation with the video ref it was judged that he had got the ball down before his leg touched the dead ball line and the Wolves were awarded their fourth try. 

Warrington then punished Leeds further when Riley sent O’Brien away 70 metres out and the half back found a massive gap and drew in the Leeds defence before offloading to the supporting Riley who sprinted clear under the posts for his second try.

As the half drew to a close the Rhinos stepped up a gear in search of an all important score before the teams went in and they eventually got on the scoreboard with five minutes left to play.  After forcing a drop out Rob Burrow scampered from dummy half to set up Kevin Sinfield, who bravely dived over the line, and although he looked to injure himself in the process the Rhinos captain stepped up to add the conversion.  As the rain died down in the closing minutes of the half Leeds tried desperately to reduce the deficit further, but they were unable to conjure up a decisive break.

In the second half Leeds brought a renewed energy to their game and within 7 minutes of the kick off they were in again.  Ben Harrison was penalised for not playing the ball and from the resulting play Burrow was able to break away and found the space to run clear for the tryline unopposed.  Sinfield once again converted to bring the score to 30-12.

Warrington suffered a setback when Hodgson went off with a leg injury and then there was a lengthy delay in play when Ian Kirke required medical attention on the field following a fierce tackle from Ben Westwood.

As the Rhinos looked more threatening they did enough to rattle Warrington, despite their healthy lead, with Lee Briers opting to kick a drop goal in the 64th minute.  Leeds responded minutes later when Burrow raced clear from a scrum for his second try of the game.  Sinfield added the conversion to bring the score to 30-18.

Although Leeds were much improved in the second half they had given themselves a difficult  task by allowing Warrington to establish such a big lead in the opening half and it proved to be too  much for them to come back from and on 73 minutes Ryan Atkins wrapped up  the win with a try in the corner.  In the final minute of the game Warrington had a chance to extend their lead further when they were awarded a penalty after Darrell Griffin was penalised for a tackle, but O’Brien was unable to land the kick and the game ended 37-18 to Warrington.
