It would be the perfect start for the Leeds Rhinos Women, Courtney Hill’s short kick off bouncing out over the sideline, gifting the Rhinos possession on the Castleford 20 metre line. The early possession would be short lived though, as Georgia Roche stripped the ball one on one to kill the early chance off.

The Tigers had come with a clear plan of attack, aggressive speed and sliding line moves, hoping to create space on the fringes.

Castleford opted to run the ball on the fifth, catching Leeds’ blindside unaware and exploiting the free space, Suze Hill saving a certain try with a crunching ball and all tackle on a runaway Kelsey Gentles on the left wing neutralising the threat.

A sweeping scrum move to the right saw Tara Stanley poke her nose through the line before Castleford put the ball through the hands out to their left edge, Marshall free with a simple pass but Grace unable to gather the ball as the Tigers squander a guaranteed try.

Castleford bombed a second try scoring opportunity in near identical fashion, Roche faking a drop off and crabbing across the line, throwing the pass wide to Gentles, the winger unable to gather the ball in and the chance coming to nothing.

A Rhiannion Marshall break put the Tigers within striking distance of the Leeds line once more, this time Castleford were more clinical as the ball was shipped wide to Gentles on the left wing, sending the Tigers number four crashing over into the corner despite Suze Hill’s best efforts. Tara Stanley unable to convert from out wide.

Castleford had clearly taken a liking to the Rhinos’ right edge as wave after wave of attack came, Gentles once more denied on the last after yet more inventive and expansive play from the Tigers on the fringes, Hill smothering the attack and putting Leeds back on the ball.

A former Leeds enforcer would come back to haunt the Rhinos after an unforced error, the Tigers trundling the ball up the middle and eventually playing Rhiannion Marshall over from in behind the ruck to extend Castleford’s lead, Stanley adding the extras to make it 10-0 with 30 minutes played.

Tara Stanley increased the lead to 11-0 when she sunk a drop goal on the last tackle in front of the Leeds’ sticks.

Castleford came up with an error on the third and Leeds had the Tigers line in sight, Butcher and Anderson going close before a Char Booth chip over the top was swatted down and the home side kept their nil in tact. The Tigers seeing out the remainder of the set and the half with an 11-0 advantage over the Rhinos.

The second half saw the Tigers take control straight from the off, a Leeds error putting the Tigers back in the Leeds danger zone.

A Tara Stanley bomb hung in the line and create issues for the Rhinos, an off the ball shepherd would give the Tigers a shot at the sticks, the kick missed and the Rhinos dropping out on their own 20 metre line to restart the

A huge break down the right from Leeds presented their best opportunity of the game so far, the formidable Chloe Kerrigan shrugging off would be tacklers and setting away Fran Goldthorp on debut, Stanley with enough pace to deny the opportunity and the subsequent offload deemed forward to Hanna Butcher, chalking off Leeds’ only try of the game thus far.

The Tigers searched for yet more points as they proceeded moving the ball to the right, Pointon unable to gather in a flat pass from Tamzin Renouf and another sure fire opportunity going begging for Castleford.

Sinead Peach went over for the home side after a huge run and offload from Rhiannion Marshall, the Tigers 13 breaking up the middle of the field, Peach in support close to the line to crawl over, Stanley added the extras to make it 17-0.

The afternoon only got worse for Leeds as Georgia Roche would step her way over close to the line to pile on yet more frustration for the Rhinos, Stanley converting to make it 23-0.

Kelsey Gentles got her second of the game with little time remaining on the clock after Ellie Oldroyd found herself in the sin bin for a dangerous throw. The space available down the left edge as a long looping ball found the Tigers winger to slide over, Stanley taking the woodwork to leave it 27-0.

Beevers found space on the right wing with one of her trademark sweeping runs, surging down the right, clawed down by Pointon to deny the Rhinos a try scoring opportunity, Renouf then flopping on top to slow play, that action costing her 10 minutes on the sideline.
