Leeds Rhinos 38 Hull FC 26

31st August 2017

By Phil Daly

Leeds Rhinos secured their place in the Super League Grand Final semi final with a hard earned 38-26 win over Hull FC.

The visitors arrived at Headingley Carnegie just five days after lifting the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup at Wembley and deserved immense credit for their part in an absorbing contest.

WP – Home MPU

The Rhinos hit the front after seven minutes with a piece of good fortune falling in the favour of the home side. Tom Briscoe got to Rob Burrow’s cross field kick first but as he tried to keep the ball alive on the last tackle Fetuli Talanoa raked the ball back towards his own try line and Burrow raced through to touch the ball down. Referee James Child handed the decision to video referee Robert Hicks with a no try call on the field but Hicks over turned that decision and awarded the score. Kallum Watkins added the conversion to give his an early 6-0 lead.

Hull levelled the game after 14 minutes as they went the length of the field. Leeds had the Airlie Birds under pressure with a smart kick from Danny McGuire which Albert Kelly juggled but just managed to regather at the third attempt. Hull then gained a penalty and two tackles later Mahe Fonua broke through the defence before putting Steve Michaels in for the try. Marc Sneyd added the conversion to level the game.

The home side edged themselves back in front soon after with a lovely worked try before the Rhinos props. Adam Cuthbertson got his arms free to offload the ball but there was still plenty for Brad Singleton to do. He picked up off the ground, stepped the defender and powered his way over the line for his third try of the season between the posts. Watkins was on target again to make it 12-6.

The Rhinos could not hold onto their lead however as Hull equalised once again, this time big prop Scott Taylor made space for himself by dummying an offload and then evaded four would be tacklers to cross for the try. Sneyd levelled the game with the conversion.

Hull were then reduced to 12 men when Gareth Ellis was sin binned for his part in a tackle on Stevie Ward. There did not appear to be any intent from Ellis but referee Child interpreted that the tackle had been careless and put Ward in a dangerous position.

The visitors initially held out the threat from Leeds but finally the dam was broken with Burrow timing his pass to perfection to put Liam Sutcliffe over for the try. Watkins was on target again to give his side an 18-12 lead.

With Ellis still on the sideline, Hull opted to go for goal after gaining a penalty when Leeds spilled the ball coming back from the restart. Sneyd cut the gap to 18-14 with seven minutes to go until half time.

However, Leeds then got their biggest lead of the night just before half time when Mitch Garbutt was awarded a try by the video referee when he agreed with the on field decision that the prop had just managed to get downward pressure before the ball squirted out on the wet turf. Watkins continued his perfect night with the boot to make it 24-14 at the interval.

There was no let up in intensity in the second half as both teams continued to go toe to toe. The Rhinos felt aggrieved when they were denied a repeat set after Fonua was taken back near his line and salt was rubbed in when Parcell was penalised at the play the ball when the ball was placed on his back as he regained his feet and Hull spilled the ball. Worse was to come for the home side as Hull then went down field and crossed for a try through Danny Washbrook despite appeals for a forward last pass from Kelly. Sneyd added the conversion to put his side back in contention at 24-20.

Leeds immediately conjured up a response with some fine play by Jamie Jones-Buchanan and Jack Walker. Jones-Buchanan got the ball away in the tackle to Walker who raced through a gap before passing to Cuthbertson. The prop took the ball 25 metres out and still had men to beat but galloped his way over for the try. Watkins curled the conversion in to put his side ten points in front again.

The Rhinos had a long spell of pressure on the Hull line after that and had to make do with a Watkins penalty to put his side further in front after 56 minutes.

The game was back in the melting pot when Josh Bowden crossed for a  try but the Rhinos finished with a flourish. Watkins kicked a penalty at the second attempt before Parcell chased up a fine kick by McGuire to dive, catch and score in the same movement to seal the win.
