City of Hull Academy U19 8 Leeds Rhinos U19 68

Rob Burrow’s Under 19s side got back to winning ways with an impressive performance against the City of Hull Acadmey  in the summer heat and sunshine at Hull YPI as they ran in over 60 points to keep up the pressure on Wigan and St Helens at the top of the table.

Harry Newman scored four tries whilst winger Liam Whitton also claimed a hat trick in a fantastic display of attacking rugby.

The Rhinos have lost 34-30 to the team from East Yorkshire earlier in the season and came into this match on the back of a 38-38 draw with Wigan last week.

Burrow made just two changes to the starting line up with hooker Harvey Whiteley missing out this week. Will Scrimshaw came into the halves to allow Corey Johnson to start at nine. Harry Georgiou started at prop in place of Thomas Holroyd whilst Billy Jowitt and Brad Martin were drafted onto the bench.

After a cagey start, it was the home side who took the lead when Jack Brown went over in the corner. The conversion attempt was missed by Patterson-Lund.

The Rhinos had to absorb plenty of pressure from the home side after that but they held out and then hit back when Kiedan Hartley showed his fantastic pace to get away down the wing and score to level the game.

Leeds then took the lead after back to back penalties against Hull and Harry Newman found a way through the line before going through to score. Harvey Spence added the conversion to give his side a 10-4 lead after 26 minutes.

It got even better for the Rhinos after that when Liam Whitton was the man on the spot following a break away to take the pass and go over for a third try. Spence added the conversion.

Newman then claimed his second try following a cross field kick and the centre then completed his hat trick with a 40 metre break. Spence converted both tries to give his side a 28-4 lead at the break.

The Rhinos kept up the pressure at the start of the second half when Hull knocked on the kick off. Jowitt punished the error when he went over from dummy half.

Dakota Whylie crossed for a seventh try for the Rhinos out wide before Corey Johnson continued his impressive season with a try from short range.

Leeds then brought up the half centry when Whitton scored his second try of the game with a set move from the scrum and it was not long before Newman grabbed his fourth try as he chased through to collect a grubber kick.

The Rhinos were now in complete control and second row Spencer Darley showed his power to get through the line and then stretch out to score before Whitton completed his hat trick with more good support play to finish from 20 metres out. Both tries were converted and the Rhinos now led 68-4.

Credit should go to the City of Hull Academy, who never threw in the towel and they got a consolation try late on when Connor Wynne finished off a fine try for the home side but the was the last of the action and the Rhinos will have been delighted with their 68-8 win.
