It was a tight evening in round eleven of the Betfred Super League but Leeds Rhinos managed to record their second consecutive home win of the season against Hull KR at Headingley, thanks to tries from Matt Prior and Morgan Gannon.

Leeds fans were forced to wait for the second debut of Zak Hardaker but the Rhinos did welcome back half back Blake Austin, who had completed his period on the sidelines after picking up a head injury on Easter Monday. Kruise Leeming started in the halves with Austin, meaning Jack Sinfield dropped to the bench, while Liam Tindall was included in a edge partnership with Rhyse Martin, following Tom Briscoe’s injury against Toulouse. Alongside head coach Tony Smith, former Leeds players Ryan Hall, Elliot Minchella and Matt Parcell round out at their old stomping ground for the away side.

Although the Robins made a quick start to the match, Lachlan Coote breaking up field with one of the game’s first carries, it was the home side that got themselves on the scoreboard first. A high tackle on Leeming set Leeds on their opponents try line and as they reached the fifth tackle, Austin’s kick for the in goal area wasn’t taken by Ethan Ryan or Coote and Matt Prior was there to dot it down.

Errors for the Robins prompted Leeds to keep coming at their line. Brad Dwyer, who was electric out of dummy half almost put Morgan Gannon through with a short pass on the last, but he ran into traffic and turned the ball over. Jack Broadbent also had a handful of opportunities to set Ash Handley away but both times the ball went array.

Following a scrappy ten minutes, towards the end of the half the Robins tried their hand to get on the score board. Jordan Abdull tried to put a tough kick up for Ryan and Sam Wood to chase, but Rhyse Martin managed to rise above them all to claim it. Then in the closing moments Ryan Hall was released down the edge and then he tried to pass back for Wood, who knocked on thanks to some good edge defence.

 

Following the half time interval, the Rhinos started strong again to add to their lead. Coming forward with Leeming, the captain kicked ahead for himself but as the KR defenders followed him, they missed Gannon racing in behind and the youngster grounded the ball to double Leeds lead.

A collision between Leeming and Coote saw the duo leave the field for HIAs but the Rhinos didn’t seem affected. Austin pinned Hall in his in goal area and despite Abdull’s short goal line drop out not coming off again, on the next play Handley was hit high. Martin took the ball and decided to go for two; the Papua New Guinean converting to make the score 12-0.

Hull KR continued to show little threat, and Dwyer led from the front with more sniping runs. Tindall and Handley both missed big chances; Handley looking certain to score but he was judged to be in touch by the sideline official.

Things went from bad to worse for the Robins as Albert Vete was sent to the sin bin for a high tackle on Cam Smith. Leeds went straight into attack mode and earned a fresh set of six, thanks to another great kick from Austin, and as Abdull kicked short, young centre Max Simpson took it on the full. Racing the short distance to score, it was unfortunate that the try had to be chalked off as the ball hadn’t gone ten minutes before the centre picked it out of the air. Nevertheless, it didn’t stop Leeds from claiming another important two points as they rise to ninth in the league table with a 12-0 win.
