Widnes Vikings 28 Leeds Rhinos 20

29th May 2017

By Leeds Rhinos

Late tries from Ryan Ince and Corey Thompson saw Widnes Vikings secure the win on Bank Holiday Monday at the Select Security Stadium.

The Rhinos opened the scoring with their first meaningful spell of pressure on the Widnes line. A cross field kick from Rob Burrow was well chased by Ryan Hall and Chris Bridge was then trapped in his own in goal to give the visitors a repeat set. Leeds made the most of the possession. Brad Singleton offloaded to Adam Cuthbertson to create the chance before Ash Handley finished off by breaking through the cover.  Sutcliffe was unable to add the conversion but the Rhinos led 4-0 after 12 minutes
 
Leeds had the better of the chances after that but Widnes defended their line well and eventually got their reward with a break in midfield. Ryan Hall did well to stop the break by Hep Cahill but the Vikings moved the ball wide and eventually Rhys Hanbury went over in the corner. Chris Bridge missed the conversion.
 
The Rhinos came up with the perfect response with a try in their next possession. Widnes made an error from the restart and Leeds went on the attack. Matt Parcell had the Vikings back peddling and the ball was knocked from his grasp only for Kallum Watkins to pop up and touch the ball down for the try.
 
Sutcliffe added the conversion and then had a hand in setting up the chance for Stevie Ward to power his through from close range. The Rhinos led 14-4 at that stage and looked comfortable at that stage.
 
However, Widnes mounted a fight back in the closing stages of the first half. They crossed for a second try with a spectacular offload out wide that was plucked out of the air by Ryan Ince. There was some doubt about the grounding but referee Scott Mikalauskas was happy to go with his touch judges call and the score was allowed.
 
Things got even better for the home side with three minutes to go until half time as they crossed for a third try. A cross field kick was batted down and Corey Thompson was on hand to pick up and touch down in the corner. Bridge missed both conversion attempts but his side were right back in the game at 14-12 at the break.

Widnes enjoyed the lions share of possession in the second half but Leeds produced some fantastic goal line defence to keep them out as a combination of errors and penalties saw the visitors penned inside their own half for long periods.
 
The pressure did eventually tell as Aaron Heremaia managed to force his way over from dummy half with 18 minutes to go.  Bridge added his first conversion of the day to put his side in front for the first time in the match.
 
Widnes thought they were in again soon afterwards but great defence from Ryan Hall denied Ince his second try.
 
Leeds made the most of the let off as they hit the front once again soon after. A high kick from Moon was dealt with by Widnes but a thundering challenge, freed the ball and Jordan Baldwinson popped up a pass to Cuthbertson and the prop forced his way over. Sutcliffe kicked the conversion to give the Rhinos a 20-18 lead with ten minutes to play.
 
We were set up for a grandstand finish and it is was Widnes who struck first when Ince broke free down the touchline and raced through to score his second of the game. Bridge added the conversion and the Vikings now led 24-20.
 
Ryan Hall was penalised from the restart for tackling in the air and from the next set, Corey Thompson was on hand to race through and touch down Rangi Chase’s kick to the in goal. Bridge missed the conversion but his side had secured a morale boosting 28-20 win.
