Leeds Rhinos v Salford Red Devils, Friday 15th September, kick off 8pm

13th September 2017

By Phil Daly

Leeds Rhinos welcome Salford Red Devils to Headingley Carnegie this Friday for the third meeting between the sides so far this season.

Back in February, the Rhinos won 20-14 in controversial circumstances with a late try from Liam Sutcliffe denying a spirited Salford. Ian Watson’s side led at the break after Gareth O’Brien and Kris Welham tries cancelled out Ryan Hall’s finish.

Jimmy Keinhorst’s second Super League try of the season put Leeds in front, but Logan Tomkins crossed to level with 10 minutes remaining at Headingley Carnegie. Sutcliffe’s score, which Salford claimed came from a forward pass in the build up, ended the visitors’ hopes late on.

The Rhinos had a more comfortable day when the sides met at the AJ Bell Stadium in July when they produced one of their best performances of the season in a 50-24 victory, running in nine tries in a crushing victory at the AJ Bell Stadium.

Josh Wood scored first for the home side but the Rhinos took control before the break with seven tries before the interval. Ryan Hall, Kallum Watkins, Matt Parcell, Joel Moon, Jamie Jones-Buchanan and two from Tom Briscoe gave Leeds a 36-6 at half time.

Salford improved and hit back with Ben Murdoch-Masila twice crashing over with Michael Dobson also scoring, but Leeds were always in control.

Anthony Mullally got the Rhinos going again before full-back Jack Walker took his team passed the half century and sealed a stylish win.

Form guide

Salford ran in nine tries against Huddersfield for their first win in nine games last weekend to keep their slim hopes of a Super League play-offs place alive. The hosts stunned the Giants with five tries in the first half to take a commanding 30-4 lead at the break and never looked back.

Since the sides last met, Salford have recruited New Zealand winger Manu Vatuvei on a deal until the end of the 2018 season.

The 31-year-old was released from his contract with National Rugby League (NRL) side New Zealand Warriors in order to join the Super League club. Vatuvei has scored 152 tries in 226 appearances for the Warriors and is rated one of the world’s top wingers.

Leeds Rhinos 44 Salford Red Devils 2

15th September 2017

By Phil Daly

Leeds Rhinos got back to winning ways with some impressive passages of play to defeat Salford for a third time this season.

Despite their impressive win over Huddersfield in the previous round, Salford Red Devils arrived at Headingley Carnegie for the penultimate round of the Super 8s knowing only a victory could keep their semi final hopes alive.

WP – Home MPU

That air of desperation perhaps explained why the visitors opted for a kick at goal after three minutes when they got a penalty just 20 metres from the Rhinos line. Gareth O’Brien kicked the penalty to give his side an early 2-0 lead but the momentum of their early possessions had been slowed.

Leeds then got a chance to attack deep in Salford territory when Rob Burrow was tackled high on halfway by Logan Tomkins. In the next set, the Rhinos worked the ball well wide through Jamie Jones-Buchanan and Joel Moon put Liam Sutcliffe in space and he powered his way through the Salford defence before stretching out to score. Kallum Watkins added the conversion to give his side a 6-2 lead after 14 minutes.

The Rhinos then increased their lead from the restart as Burrow and Danny McGuire rolled back the years for a classic try. Burrow, who started in place of Matt Parcell, spotted a gap from dummy half and darted through. He drew the last man before popping up a pass to McGuire to race in from 25 metres out. Watkins was on target again to make it 12-2 after 17 minutes.

Salford had another purple patch after that but the Rhinos produced some impressive defence to keep the Red Devils at bay and the closest the visitors came was a disallowed effort from winger Jake Bibby was ruled out for a forward pass in the build up.

The Rhinos extended their lead before half time when a pass was floated wide to Tom Briscoe and the winger finished brilliantly, showing sheer pace to get around the outside of Junior Sau to score in the corner. Watkins narrowly missed the conversion but his side led 16-2 at the break.

The start of the second half was a quiet affair with both teams guilty of spilling too much ball but the game sprung back into life with the introduction of Matt Parcell.

The hooker ran across the face of the Salford defence before glimpsing a gap and flying through it to score. Watkins added the conversion.

Leeds had their tails up now and they earned a repeat set when Burrow’s kick hit the cross bar and they reacted quickest to keep the ball alive and force Salford to knock the ball dead. Eventually the pressure proved too much and Adam Cuthbertson beat Parcell to touch down McGuire’s smart kick to the in goal. Watkins was on target again to make it 28-2 after 58 minutes.

The lead was extended further with the best try of the game two minutes later. Cuthbertson made a sensational break in midfield and appeared to have over run his support before produced a sublime pass to Watkins who combined with McGuire and Burrow to get to the Salford line. The visitors managed to keep them out but Parcell sensed the panic in the Salford ranks and quickly picked up to go over from dummy half.

The Rhinos were now in free flow mood and soon added two more tries. The first came from Anthony Mullally as the Irish international proved too strong near the line two stop. Then a wonderful passage of play saw Ashton Golding break through before passing to McGuire who produced a superb grubber kick into the path of Brett Ferres. The forward did not need to break stride to collect the ball and galloped over. Watkins converted both tries to make the final score 44-2.
