Bradford Bulls Women 6 Leeds Rhinos Women 18

Leeds Rhinos Women claimed the victory in the big West Yorkshire derby in the Women’s Super League at Odsal as they produced a strong performance to secure a 18-6 win.

Fran Goldthorpe, who had moved onto the wing with Caitlin Beevers at full back, opened the scoring for the visitors after just six minutes as she got to a kick on the last tackle first before getting away from the defenders to touch down. Courtney Hill added the conversion to make it 6-0.

Both teams had chances after that to cross for a try, most notably Sophie Nuttall, who thought she had scored in the corner for Leeds only for it to be disallowed due to a knock on. It was only Nuttall’s second start of the season and she was unlucky not to mark it with a try.

Likewise Leah Jones thought she had scored for the Bulls near half time but was pulled back for obstruction in the build up so it remained 6-0 at the break to the Rhinos.

After plenty of errors in the first half, it appeared the team who showed the most composure in the second half would take the points and it was Leeds who struck first after 53 minutes.

Charlotte Booth, against her former club, broke through a couple of attempted tackles and powered her way through to score between the posts to give Hill a simple conversion to make it 12-0.

Four minutes later the Rhinos crossed for third converted try, this time Keara Bennett came off the bench to take the return pass and score between the posts. Hill was on target again to make it 18-0.

Bradford did get a try back after 65 minutes when Bailey Alexander in the corner and she could have had another late on from an interception but knocked on as she headed for the line.

Leeds held on for the win to keep up the pressure on Castleford Tigers at the top of the table.
