Widnes Vikings 34 Leeds Rhinos 28

22nd June 2002

By Leeds Rhinos

Widnes completed a Super League double over Leeds after surviving a rousing fight back. Widnes, who won 14-10 at Headingley in April, looked to have the points in the bag at half-time when they romped into a 30-6 interval lead.

But the Rhinos hit back with four tries in the second half to cut the gap to 34-28, skipper Francis Cummins having a late try disallowed by the video referee after being pushed into touch by Jason Demetriou.

But Cummins was also at the centre of controversy in the 54th minute when his forward pass to Ben Walker went unseen by referee Ian Smith despite Widnes protests.

The try was allowed to stand but fortunately for Widnes it did not affect the final outcome.  Adam Hughes was man of the match for Widnes, romping over for four tries.  His first touchdown came after seven minutes following slick handling by Craig Weston and Steve McCurrie.

Then Barry Eaton's kick eluded Walker in the sun with Hughes bagging his second try, converted by Eaton.

Widnes made it 16-0 midway through the first half with a Chris Percival touchdown before Danny McGuire celebrated his full debut for the Rhinos with a scorching 65-metre touchdown.  But further tries from Phil Cantillon and Hughes, with three Eaton goals, made it 30-6 at the interval.

Leeds cut the gap to 30-16 with tries from the impressive Keith Senior and Ben Walker's controversial effort.  Hughes powered over for his fourth try to give Widnes breathing space at 34-16 before tries by Leeds duo Willie Poching and Cummins set up a grandstand finish.  But Widnes deserved their victory which keeps them sixth in Super League.

Widnes boss Neil Kelly said: "Leeds played a lot of frantic football to get back in the game and that set up a heart-stopping finale.

"But for a team like us at our stage of our development to beat a quality side like Leeds twice in a league season is quite an achievement.
