Leeds Rhinos were left to rue a below par first half performance as they lost out 30-16 to Huddersfield Giants at the John Smith’s Stadium.

The Rhinos conceded four first half tries to trail 22-4 at the break but a late try from Ash Handley gave them hope of a potential comeback. Whilst Leeds were much improved after the break, and cut the gap to 22-12 near the hour mark, the Giants had enough to keep them at arms length and were good value for their win.

Leeds had skipper Kruise Leeming ruled out just hours before kick off through illness. The captain, who was in inspirational form the previous week in the 40-4 win at Warrington, had been struggling with a bout of sickness in the previous couple of days but had hoped to be cleared to play on matchday but his condition had worsened and he was ruled out. Rather than re-shape the game plan, Head Coach Rohan Smith brought Jarrod O’Connor in as a direct replacement in the starting line up. Smith also welcomed back England centre Harry Newman after 14 weeks on the sidelines through injury but his return was carefully managed with him a cameo appearance in the final 30 minutes of the game a chance to ease him back into action.

The opening ten minutes of the game had been a tight affair with an early Will Pryce penalty the only difference between the sides with David Fusitu’a having created a good half chance for the visitors. However, Ian Watson side were in a clinical mood and soon punished some individual defensive errors from the Rhinos. Ricky Leutele scored the first try of the game as he reacted quickest to a spinning scuffed kick from the home side and managed to get over in the corner.

Pryce missed the conversion attempt and a penalty kick four minutes later but the Giants doubled their lead a quarter of the way through the game when Jermaine McGillvary found himself in acres of space out wide following a flowing passing move along the Giants back line and the winger, who announced his international retirement this week, had a simple try for his 199th career try. Pryce added the conversion to give the home side a 10-0 lead.

They crossed for a third try just three minutes late when Jake Wardle was the man put in space this time to touch down on the opposite flank.

Leeds were then hit with a sucker punch as they mounted their best attack of the half only to see Chris McQueen scoop up a loose pass and run 85 metres to score the Giants fourth try. Pryce’s conversion made it 22-0 with just over ten minutes to go until half time.

Matt Prior and Brad Dwyer came on for Leeds after that and helped give Leeds an element of control and they got a reward with the final play of the half as Ash Handley scored his 100th career try with a delightful team try. The chance was created by Blake Austin, who broke down the middle before passing to Cameron Smith, who in turn released Richie Myler. The half back threw a looping pass out wide over the top of McGillvary and Handley was in for the score. Martin was unable to convert but the gap was now 22-4 at the break.

Leeds had chances to build pressure on Huddersfield but individual errors or discipline cost them. They did eventually make their pressure count when Handley brilliantly patted down Austin’s high kick into the arms of Smith. The loose forward kept his cool before putting Liam Sutcliffe away to score. Rhyse Martin added the conversion and there was hope for the travelling Leeds fans at 22-10.

However, those dreams vanished when the Giants made the most of a slice of good fortune from a knock on when Leroy Cudjoe looked to offload but only threw the ball into Sutcliffe. They were clinical once again and Great Britain forward Josh Jones stretched out to score from close range.  A previous penalty and the conversion from Pryce now had Huddersfield in a commanding position at 30-10 with ten minutes to go.

The Rhinos never threw in the towel and continued to work hard for one another. Finally they got their reward when Zak Hardaker chased the low grubber kick from Austin and won the race to touch the ball down. Martin added the conversion to cut the gap to 30-16 however Leeds ran out of time to make any further in roads.

One silver lining for Leeds was the return of Harry Newman, who came on as a second half replacement with 30 minutes to go for his first piece of action in 14 weeks following hamstring surgery.
