Leeds Rhinos 38 Hull FC 6

A try and two goals from man of the match Tom Briscoe helped Leeds Rhinos to a convincing 38-6 win over Hull FC at Headingley Stadium.

There was a warm reception for the man of the moment Briscoe, who started alongside Ash Handley on the left edge, while new signing David Fusitu’a made his first appearance in a Rhinos shirt on the opposite side. James Bentley, Aidan Sezer and Blake Austin also gained crucial game time as the Super League round one clash against Warrington approaches.

Hull got out of the traps quickly in the opening exchanges and scored the first try of the game through Adam Swift. Back to back set restarts caught the Rhinos on the backfoot and with new signing Luke Gale and Ben McNamara commanding their troops around, a sweeping move to the right saw Jake Connor provide a cut out pass for Swift to dive in the corner. Gale converted his first of the game to give the away side a 6-0 lead.

Hull kept the pressure on with two more back-to-back sets, after Gale’s cross field kick was judged to have come off a Leeds hand before Carlos Tuimavave reclaimed. The Rhinos defence held strong though and their efforts were rewarded as Kruise Leeming levelled the score up. A break by Harry Newman saw the elusive centre break downfield and he looked to go all the way himself. As Connor and Darnell McIntosh chased him down, he centre wasn’t selfish and passed for the newly appointed captain Leeming to cross the whitewash.

From then on, the ball was all in Leeds’ favour. Shortly after the Leeming try, Ash Handley made a similar break to Newman’s but this time the wing was brought down. The Rhinos kept the pressure on as Fusitu’a and Newman both tried their luck out of dummy half, but neither could break over the try line.

As the clock ticked passed the twenty minute mark, the home side made their pressure count as they took the lead. Austin cleverly caught Hull offside from the play of the ball, gifting Leeds precious yardage, and off the back of it, try scorer Leeming tried to get his second of the game. The hooker was brought up short but Leeds persisted to attack as Austin, Sezer, Cameron Smith and Richie Myler all combined in a swift sweeping move to send Liam Sutcliffe through a hole to score. Sezer hit the post with his conversion attempt as the score remained 10-6.

Inside the last ten minutes, both sides went down to twelve men. Austin was shown a yellow card for a late hit on Luke Gale, which occurred after Fusitu’a had put a heavy hit on Davy Litten. After a break in play, which saw Litten stretchered from the field, Gale too was shown to the sidelines for ten minutes after preventing Myler from taking a quick tap. Before either side could capitalise though, the referee signalled for half time; the Rhinos leading by four points.

 

Leeds kicked off the second half in style with three consecutive tries from Briscoe, Sezer and Myler. Man of the match Briscoe opened the second half scoring after a tired Hull defence had been caught holding Leeds down. With Austin returning back to the action following his sin binning, the half back was thrown into the action and supplied Briscoe with the pass that put the centre through to score.

Sezer also got his name on the scoresheet after his fifth tackle kick was taking in goal by McIntosh. As Hull were forced into a goal line drop out, three strong carries from Zane Tetevano, Mik Oledzki and James Bentley got Leeds within range before Sezer stepped out of the challenge of Brad Fash to score an easy try under the posts. Myler got in on the act too as the full back supported a break from Handley to give Leeds their third try in ten minutes.

The points kept coming Leeds’ way as Hull failed to deal with the rampaging Rhinos. On the hour mark, a nice break by Tetevano through some tired Hull defenders put the prop one on one with the Hull full back and instead of being selfish, he passed inside for Austin to score under the posts and take Leeds’ lead to beyond 30 points. Briscoe stepped up to convert the try and was successful with his first attempt, making the score 32-6.

Even though the home side lost Aidan Sezer for the last remaining minutes of the half, after the half back was sin binned for dissent, Rhyse Martin sealed the win for the Rhinos. Hull, who had worked their way into a good position due to Leeds infringements, knocked on at the crucial moment and Jack Walker swooped on the loose ball and almost broke away. A further set restart for the Rhinos helped Agar’s men downfield and as Bentley was tackled short of the line, Dwyer threw a simple short pass from dummy half and sent Martin crashing over to finish the scoring. Briscoe was successful once again from the kicking tee, giving Leeds a 38-6 victory.
