50 most memorable moments v Australians
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.
11. Sir Kev kicks the Rhinos to glory against Melbourne Storm
Leeds and Melbourne will meet once again in less than two weeks to decide the World Club title in a fourth meeting between the sides in a decade. The first game came in 2008 at Elland Road and is remembered for Scott Donald’s vital try in the rain and wind at Leeds United’s home.
However, it was the cool head of skipper Kevin Sinfield that sealed the day as he kicked his side to victory including slotting over a penalty despite the actions of an idiotic spectator who tried to put him off his aim with a laser pen. It didn’t work and the rest is history.
