Warrington Wolves 40 Leeds Rhinos 20

14th September 2013

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos travelled to the Halliwell Jones Stadium looking to secure top seeding for the Grand Final Qualification game but faced a side who were desperate to win their first Super League title.

The Rhinos welcomed back Ryan Bailey to the starting line up at loose forward with Brad Singleton moving to the bench. Warrington were without Brett Hodgson but otherwise were at full strength. 

WP – Home MPU

The Rhinos knew they were in for a massive contest against Tony Smith’s side. It was the home side who struck first after just seven minutes when Ben Westwood reacted quickest to a grubber kick from Lee Briers. He collected the ball short of the line before being hauled down by Zak Hardaker, however he managed to keep his ball carrying arm off the pitch and then stretched out to put the ball down on the line. Stefan Ratchford adding the conversion.

Leeds responded soon after to level the game. The match was living up to the pre-match billing as a huge play off clash with both teams producing some thundering defence. It took something special to open up the home side and it came when Rob Burrow produced a trademark break before putting Kallum Watkins in for his 19th try of the season. Kevin Sinfield added the conversion to level the score after 13 minutes.

The Rhinos then took the lead when Watkins turned provider, releasing Ben Jones-Bishop down the touchline and he passed inside for Kevin Sinfield to score. The skipper missed the conversion attempt but his side were good value for their 10-6 lead.
With just over ten minutes to go in the half, it was Warrington’s turn to retake the lead. Michael Monaghan created the opening for Simon Grix, who raced 40 metres to score between the posts. Ratchford had a simple conversion to put his side 12-10 in front.

The game had already had a hugely controversial moment when Lee Briers punched Rhinos forward Carl Ablett in front of the referee James Child. The referee gave the Warrington play maker a ticking off but more controversy was to follow when Westwood was awarded a second try after video referee Phil Bentham gave him the benefit of the doubt after Hardaker’s attempt to hold him up was inconclusive on the replay. Ratchford added the conversion to make it 18-10 at the break but leave the game in the balance.

Warrington came out fired up after the interval and dominated possession for the first quarter of the half. They were able to turn that pressure into points. Firstly, Westwood made the most of the position set up by a 40:20 from Briers, as Michael Monaghan broke through from dummy half passing out wide for Westwood to score. Ratchford adding the conversion.
Briers was then awarded a try by video referee Bentham. Michael Monaghan got rid of the ball on the last tackle, it rolled through Chris Hill’s legs before Briers picked up to score. Bentham was satisfied that Hill had not knocked the ball on and the try was given. Briers converting his own try to make it 28-10 and give the home side an unassailable lead.

The Rhinos continued to battle hard and got two tries back from Zak Hardaker, the first from sheer determination at the line, the second from a good line however, they came either side of Westwood’s fourth try, this time collecting Briers kick to touch down and the game was over for the Champions.

Leeds desperately tried to get something out of the game late on but a spilled ball by Sinfield was hacked ahead by Ryan Atkins and he beat Hardaker to touch down. Ratchford added the conversion to make the final score 40-20 to the Wolves.
