Bradford Bulls U19 6 Leeds Rhinos U19 52

Leeds Rhinos U19s got back to winning ways with a hard earned victory over Bradford Bulls at Odsal.

The Rhinos had lost the derby last season at the same venue but they came out determined to respond to last week’s set back against the City of Hull Academy.

Leeds opened the scoring early on when Tom Holroyd forced his way over from close range after good work by Jarrod O’Connor.

The Rhinos then created a lovely try from deep inside their own half. There didn’t seem to be much on when scrum half Jack Mallinson took possession ten metres from his own line but he broke through before offloading to Joe Burton, who galloped up field before releasing winger Ben Markland to finish off in style between the posts. Harvey Spence converted both tries to make it 12-0 after just eight minutes.

The Bulls managed to get a try back before half time when Ryan Butterworth squeezed over in the corner after the cross field kick was flicked back inside on the last tackle. The conversion from wide out made it 12-6 to Leeds at half time.

Rob Burrow’s side put the game to bed early on in the second half as they produced a clinical performance to seal the points.

Harry Georgiou set up the position for the visitors third try with good support play following another break from Mallinson. With Bradford back peddling, Muizz Mustapha ran hard at the defence and powered his way over.

Markland then went over for his second try with some quick footwork to dance around the defence following a strong carry by Mustapha. The England Academy international then scored his second try as Mallison punished some flat footed defence from a tap penalty before gifting his forward the try. The Rhinos now led 28-6 and were in command.

Burton created the next score with a leg pumping carry before getting a quick play the ball that allowed Tyler Dupree to run at the defence and carry four men over the line with him for the score.

Liam Whitton came off the bench after that to score two tries of his own. The first saw him support a fine break by Iwan Stephens down the wing before fast feet at the line took through a gap to score between the posts for his second.

The Rhinos wrapped up the win when Mallinson and Spence combined to reverse the play and put Loui McConnell is space near the line.

Spence kicked eight conversions from nine attempts to complete the 52-6 win.
