Widnes Vikings 38 Leeds Rhinos 24

10th May 2015

By Leeds Rhinos

The Rhinos lost out against Widnes Vikings despite two tries from Kallum Watkins and one apiece from Joel Moon, Stevie Ward and Jimmy Keinhorst.

The Rhinos were looking to extend their lead at the top of the First Utility Super League but knew they would face a fired up Vikings outfit after they  suffered a heart breaking last second defeat to their local rivals Warrington the previous week.
 
Indeed the home side came out like a team with a point to prove and they opened the scoring after five minutes without the Rhinos having touched the ball. Having broken through on halfway through Joe Mellor, they kept the pressure up on Leeds. With three quick penalties, the were able to work an opening an eventually it was Chris Clarkson who found a way through against his parent club. Jack Owens missed the conversion attempt from close range but his side were good value for their early 4-0 lead.
 
Leeds hit back after Rhys Hanbury spilled a high kick from Danny McGuire. The Rhinos kept the ball alive from the scrum and eventually Stevie Ward managed to cut back inside and force his way over and level the game. Liam Sutcliffe was unable to add the conversion.
 
The Rhinos then took the lead when they began to open up the Vikings defence and a clever kick from McGuire caused havoc in the home defence and Joel Moon was on hand to dive on the loose ball.  Sutcliffe was on target this time to give his side a 10-6 lead.
 
The visitors though were finding themselves too often on the wrong side of referee Phil Bentham and penalties were enabling Widnes to gain vital field position. They levelled the game after Leeds were penalised in midfield and good handling along the backline put Stefan Marsh through for a try.
 
The home side then took the lead when the Rhinos were guilty of not playing to the whistle as referee Bentham began to signal for a penalty against Paul Aiton for a high tackle on Mellor however he then waved play on and Mellor side stepped Hardaker to score. Jack Owens converted both tries to give his side a 16-10 lead.
 
Leeds managed to cut the gap with the final play of the first half when quick ball along the back line created a gap out wide and Jimmy Keinhorst produced a sublime offload to put Watkins in at the corner. Sutcliffe missed the conversion attempt with the final kick of the half but his side were just two points behind at 16-14.
 
Once again Widnes started the half the stronger aided by the Rhinos discipline as referee Bentham continued to pull up the visitors. Widnes scored their fourth try when Danny Galea went over when McGuire was penalised for offside as he intercepted a pass five metres from the try line.
 
Then Ward was penalised in the tackle with 25 minutes to go and Manase Manuokafoa was able to spin out of the tackle and reach out to score. Owens converted both tries to put his side in a strong position at 28-14 in front.
 
Leeds did find a response as Watkins crossed for his second try of the game as he combined well with McGuire to take the half back’s grubber kick to the corner and score.
 
The Rhinos once again got joy down that side of the field with their next score as Keinhorst showed great strength to hold off two would be tacklers before stretching out to score. Sutcliffe converted the latter score to cut the gap to 28-24 with 19 minutes to go.
 
However, Leeds were unable to build on that momentum and the Vikings struck again ten minutes later following a spilled ball by Watkins following an offload by Hardaker. Eventually Chris Dean forced his way over. Owens added the conversion to give his side a ten point lead.
 
The Vikings then sealed the win in the final minutes when Aaron Heremaia scored in the corner with the try awarded following a lengthy chat between the officials. Owens was unable to add the conversion but his side had secured a 38-24 win.
