Widnes Vikings 28 Leeds Rhinos 38

22nd June 2014

By Leeds Rhinos

The Rhinos returned to winning ways with victory over Widnes Vikings thanks to tries from Kallum Watkins, Danny McGuire, Tom Briscoe, Kevin Sinfield, Liam Sutcliffe and Josh Walters.

The Rhinos welcomed back Paul Aiton, Jamie Jones-Buchanan, Danny McGuire and Carl Ablett for their visit to the Select Security Stadium but were without Jamie Peacock and Kylie Leuluai.

The visitors made a blistering start and came close to scoring in the opening minute through Tom Briscoe but the winger was just held up as he made his way to the tryline. Moments later Kallum Watkins was able to sneak his way through in the same corner to put his side in front, although Sinfield was unable to add the difficult touchline conversion.

Leeds had the majority of possession in the opening ten minutes and Widnes struggled to gain momentum and a foothold in the game and they soon found themselves further behind when Danny McGuire marked his return by scampering over unopposed under the posts after Ben Jones-Bishop had cut through. This time Sinfield added the extra points to put the visitors 10-0 ahead.

On the twenty minute mark Rhys Hanbury helped turn things round for the hosts after their first real piece of pressure in the Leeds half and the full back was able to set up Chris Dean to stretch out and score down the left side. Patrick Ah Van, who was on kicking duty in the place of the absent Danny Tickle missed his conversion attempt so the Rhinos led 10-4.

Having conceded over 100 points in their last two games the Vikings fans needed something to cheer and with the sense that the game was swinging their way they got behind their team who grew in confidence and nine minutes later their pressure on the Rhinos told when Ryan Hall was unable to control a high kick from Danny Craven and Hanbury was in the right place to collect the ball and go over for the try. Ah Van successfully kicked the conversion to give his side the lead for the first time.

Before the break Hall came close to pulling back a try for the Rhinos after hard work from McGuire near the Widnes try line but the winger was just stopped short of the line. The Vikings made no mistake from their last effort of the half when Ah Van out jumped Tom Briscoe to secure the ball from a Craven kick and then race over for the try which he then converted to make it 16-10 to the homeside at the break.

In the second half Leeds looked more controlled but faced a spirited Widnes who continued to challenge them throughout. Eight minutes into the half Sinfield levelled the scores with a converted try and then after winning a penalty to get another set of six on the Widnes line Liam Sutcliffe held off Craven to restore the Rhinos lead and Sinfield nudged the score to 22-16 with the conversion.

Widnes hit back with some impressive play but Tom Briscoe helped settle the nerves for the Rhinos with a try on 62 minutes after Hall had made a break to send him over and five minutes later McGuire grabbed his second. Sinfield converted the first but was off target with the second bringing the score to 32-16.

Although the score was running away from them, Widnes showed their grit and they got their reward through a try from substitute Grant Gore, which Ah Van converted to narrow the deficit to ten points.

Josh Walters, who had come on from the bench, prevented the Vikings from gaining more momentum in their comeback attempts when he dived on a close range kick to get his first try for the club. Sinfield added the extras to make it 38-22 with four minutes to play.

The Vikings had the final say though when Joe Mellor picked up a loose pass to go the length of the field to score a consolation try as Ah Van's conversion would be the final play of the game.
