Widnes Vikings 36 Leeds Rhinos 52

30th June 2013

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos ran in ten tries, all but three in the first half, as they put Widnes to the sword however the home side rallied with three late tries to give their fans something to cheer.

Leeds were given a welcome boost ahead of their clash with the return from injury of England centre Kallum Watkins.

WP – Home MPU

Watkins had initially been ruled out for eight weeks after suffering an ankle injury against Hull FC however he returns to face the Vikings. Exiles centre Joel Moon is also back after serving a one game suspension last week for the defeat at Huddersfield.

The Rhinos still without Kylie Leuluai, Jamie Jones-Buchanan, Stevie Ward, Joe Vickery, Brett Delaney, Ryan Bailey, Liam Hood, Danny McGuire and Kevin Sinfield for the trip to the Stobart Stadium. Jones-Buchanan was the latest player to join the casualty list last week and that meant that 19 year old forward Alex Foster became the latest young Rhino to make his debut this week.

Leeds Rhinos created a dominant first half showing to blow Widnes away at the Select Security Stadium as they ran in seven tries through five different try scorers.

The Rhinos, still without eight first team players, got off to the best possible start when they opened the scoring after just eight minutes. Gareth Hock was penalised 40 metres from his own line and Leeds made the home side pay with quick hands along the line creating the space for Moon to throw a dummy to Hall and go through the gap. Hardaker added the conversion to make it 6-0.

Seven minutes later Liam Sutcliffe crossed for the fourth try of his Leeds career following a sensational break by Hardaker, who took a kick ten metres from his own line before bursting through the defence. He found Kallum Watkins, who popped up a pass to give Sutcliffe a simple run in.

Moon and Sutcliffe continued the try scoring with the next two tries as well. Moon took advantage of the home side waiting for a decision from referee Thierry Alibert as they appealed for a forward pass. And the home fans were even more incensed with the Rhinos next score when Sutcliffe finished off a move that looked to have an obstruction in the build up.

Zak Hardaker missed both conversions but his side led 20-0 after 23 minutes and were in complete control. That dominance was further amplified with three tries in ten minutes. The first came from Burrow when he took Sutcliffe’s pass near the line to score. Then Paul McShane, who had been impressive throughout against the side he played for on loan last season, chipped a kick to the corner that Ryan Hall plucked out of the air to touch down.

Hardaker converted both and then crossed for a try as the first half drew to a close when he took advantage of another great break by Burrow. The ball eventually fell to Sutcliffe who put the full back over for the seventh try of the half.

Widnes rallied in the final minutes of the half and crossed for their opening try as the hooter sounded. Richard Moore was penalised in midfield for offside and Widnes skipper Kevin Brown stepped back across the defence from the quick tap to score. Jack Owens added the conversion to make it 38-6 at the break.

The Rhinos however were in ruthless mood and did not allow the Vikings to get their tails up. Having recovered the ball from the kick off, Leeds camped on the home line and eventually Ben Jones-Bishop made the extra man out wide to score.

Eight minutes later, Burrow crossed for his second try after Owens tried to pick up a loose ball as Leeds were on the attack but could only knock it on into the path of Carl Ablett. He broke up field and gave Burrow a simple run in. Hardaker’s conversion gave the Rhinos a 48-6 lead at that stage.

However, the home side rallied with Brown completing his hat trick and having a hand in three other tries for Hock, twice, and Hanbury. Leeds’ only response came from Watkins, who marked his return by powering over.

Widnes gave their fans something to celebrate on their way home with three tries in the last ten minutes, all converted by Owens to make the final score 52-36.
