As we count down to the World Club Challenge against Melbourne Storm on Friday 16th February, we are counting down each day with 50 of the most memorable moments for the club against Australian sides down the years from Kangaroos to Cowboys.

34. Rob Burrow try against Canterbury

Leeds Rhinos produced a near faultless display in the first half of their first ever World Club Challenge when they defeated NRL Premiers Canterbury Bulldogs at Elland Road.

The Rhinos dominated in the first half in front of nearly 40,000 fans at Elland Road and that dominance was captured in the final try of the first half, finished off by Rob Burrow. The move involved nine passes in total with Marcus Bai eventually dropping the pass back inside for Burrow to spin and go over for the try to make it 26-6 at the break and Leeds were on their way to their first ever World title.
