Warrington Wolves 40 Leeds Rhinos 24

5th March 2011

By Leeds Rhinos

A first half blitz from Warrington Wolves was enough to put the hosts in a position to beat the Rhinos at Halliwell Jones.

Leeds led 8-0 at the end of the first quarter but then conceded four tries to trail 22-8 at the break and they were never able to recover.

WP – Home MPU

Lee Smith started on the wing for the Rhinos in place of Ben Jones-Bishop, who was amongst the replacements, whilst Weller Hauraki started in the second row alongside Ali Lauitiiti with Carl Ablett starting at loose forward.

In the front row Jamie Jones-Buchanan moved up to replace the injured Kylie Leuluai and there was a welcome return for Brent Webb at full back.

Leeds found themselves on the wrong side of referee Steve Ganson in the opening exchanges as they were twice penalised at the ruck area. Warrington earned a repeat set when Brent Webb was penned in the in goal but they were unable to unlock the visitors defence.

The Wolves had a great chance from a kick by Lee Briers but Chris Riley failed to get the ball down and the chance went begging.

The visitors were left to rue that missed opportunity after eleven minutes when a wonderful miss pass from Kevin Sinfield released Lee Smith down the wing. Smith flew passed Riley before passing back inside to Sinfield who offloaded to Kallum Watkins to score between the posts. The decision wen to video referee Phil Bentham but there was no doubt and Sinfield's conversion put the Rhinos into a 6-0 lead.

That lead was extended by Sinfield after 19 minutes when Riley was penalised for crossing as he came back from collecting a deep kick.

However, the home side turned the game in their favour with three tries in five minutes. The first came straight from the restart at the penalty when Ali Lauitiiti knocked on the kick off and Kallum Watkins then picked up the ball from an offside position. The Wolves were clinical this time and the impressive youngster Rhys Evans crossed for the try. Lee Briers was then gifted the second try when he intercepted Weller Hauraki's pass. Finally, a 60 metre flowing move eventually saw Richie Myler cross from Evan' s pass. Brett Hodgson converted the first and last try to make it 16-8.

There was a nervous moment for the Rhinos with three minutes remaining in the half when captain Kevin Sinfield appeared to suffer a serious injury however after a lengthy period of treatment he was able to regain his feet and continue.

However, the Rhinos suffered a blow with the last play of the first half. Leeds lost possession on half way with 28 seconds remaining and Michael Monaghan was quickest to react, chipping into the corner for Riley to win the footrace with Jones-Bishop to score. Hodgson added the conversion to make it 22-8 at the break.

It got worse for the Rhinos at the start of the second half after another mistake, this time from Ben Cross, gifted Warrington the ball. The Wolves took full advantage as Simon Grix crossed for a try from close range. Hodgson added the conversion to make it 28-8 after 42 minutes.

The Rhinos were making too many mistakes to mount a fightback and they were made to pay when Briers got out of the tackle and fed Joel Monaghan for the winger to score after 55 minutes. Hodgson added the conversion to put his side 34-8 in front.

The visitors did rally after that but they had left themselves with a mountain to climb. The first try came from Brent Webb when he dipped low to take Sinfield's grubber kick and score between the posts. Sinfield added the conversion leaving the score 34-14 after 58 minutes.

The Rhinos got another try back when Joel Monaghan attempted to intercept Webb's wide pass but could only knock it down and Ryan Hall reacted quickly to pick up and go over. Sinfield was off target on this occasion.

However, the result was effectively sealed with eleven minutes to go when Mickey Higham forced his way over from dummy half. Hodgson added the conversion to make it 40-18 to the hosts.

The Rhinos got a consolation try with a minute to go when Hall crossed for his second try of the game, converted by Sinfield but it did not disguise the fact that the Wolves were good value for their victory, final score 40-24.
