A hat trick from winger Ash Handley helped Leeds Rhinos to their first win of the 2022 Betfred Super League season as they defeated Wakefield Trinity 34-18 in wet conditions at the Be Well Support Stadium.

Richard Agar welcomed back a host of players for the clash. Left edge pairing David Fusitu’a and Harry Newman were both included, Newman for the first time this season, plus Rhyse Martin took his place among the forward pack after returning from Australia earlier in the week. Two Leeds players also made milestone appearances against Trinity. Brad Dwyer came off the bench to make his 100th Rhinos appearance while Liam Sutcliffe joined an exclusive group of Leeds players to make 200 appearances for the club.

Leeds got off to a lightning start as returning winger Fusitu’a opened the scoring after three minutes. The visitors earned a repeat set close to the Trinity try line after Morgan Gannon was taken out in the air by Lewis Murphy as the duo both went up for Aidan Sezer’s kick and instantly went on the attack. After Jack Walker almost carved his way through the Wakefield line, Aidan Sezer threw a long cut out ball for Newman, who found Fusitu’a with a quick pass and the winger bulldozed his way through three defenders to score the opening try.

Before the clock hit 10 minutes, Leeds had a second try of the game courtesy of Morgan Gannon. Off the back of a strong drive by Mikolaj Oledzki, Sezer was once again at the heart of the Rhinos’ attack as the half back connected up with Walker to release Handley down the sideline. Under pressure from Jay Pitts, the winger did well to get the ball away to Sutcliffe, who in turn passed inside for Gannon to finish easily. Martin converted both tries to make the score 12-0.

With Wakefield providing little threat in attack, Leeds kept the home side under the pump with Handley, Walker and Fusitu’a leading the charge from the back. Off the back of another poor set from the home side, Leeds worked their way back inside Trinity’s half and captain Kruise Leeming managed to get himself a quick play and run into the backfield. A swift move followed as Matt Prior, Sezer and Austin all contributed passes to open up space on the edge and, as Tom Johnstone was forced to come out of the defensive line, Austin timed his pass to perfection to put Newman into to score in the corner.

Wakefield’s evening went from bad to worse as captain Jacob Miller failed a HIA but for Leeds, it kept getting better. Rhyse Martin slotted a penalty goal after Trinity were caught offside by referee Chris Kendall before an error from debutant Lewis Murphy saw the young winger drop a high kick on the fifth tackle and Sutcliffe was there to pick up the loose ball and feed Ash Handley to score Leeds’ fourth try.

Back to back penalties saw the home side have their best scoring chance of the half, only for Mason Lino to squander it as his pass to David Fifita was forward, and Leeds punished them with a fifth try before half time. Fifita was at fault again as his offload was picked off by Austin and moments later, a wide move to Walker saw the full back find Handley, who beat the tackle of Tanginoa to raced through a huge gap, left by the second rower, and score under the posts. Martin converted to give the Rhinos a comfortable 30-0 lead at the break.

 

Trinity came out for the second half and tried to change the momentum of the game. In their opening set of the half, Fifita proved difficult to tackle by the Leeds defenders but as Wakefield tried to keep the ball alive, Eddie Battye knocked on and gifted the visitors the ball. Leeming reacted to the pressure by coolly slotting his second 40/20 but as Sezer tried to create, his pass was awkward and went to ground.

The home fans finally had something to shout about as Ashurst got their first try of the game on 50 minutes. After Newman was brought from the field with a dead leg, Wakefield mounted their attack as Lino kicked across the field. Johnstone went up and batted it back for the onrushing James Batchelor, who found Ashurst on his inside for an easy try.

Leeds continued to stay in the arm wrestle – Sezer slotting a teasing kick down the sideline for Handley that was just too long –  but it was a sign of what was to come as the Leeds winger crowned his hat trick with an excellent finish. A knock on by Murphy gave the Rhinos possession on their opponents 20 metre line and from the subsequent scrum, a quick move almost saw Fusitu’a get a chance to score his second try of the game but he cut back inside. The play wasn’t dead though and as the Rhinos swapped the play across the field, courtesy of great passes from Leeming, Walker and Gannon, Sutcliffe was able to time his pass beautifully for Handley, who evaded Murphy and Lino to score in the corner again. The decision was handed up to the video referee who awarded the try.

With the win well and truly sealed, Leeds allowed Wakefield back in the game as the home side finished with two extra tries before the full time whistle. Despite going down to twelve men, after Leeming was sin binned for a high shot on Bowes, the Rhinos looked unfazed while their captain was off the field, stopping every attack Trinity threw at them and also forcing a goal line drop out with five minutes to go. Wakefield won the short drop out and instantly hit back as Lino and Kay combined to put Jowitt over.

Shortly after scoring, the full back turned into the architect as on the final whistle, he produced a swift pass over the top for Johnstone to score a consolation as the Rhinos walked away with their first win of the season.
