Huddersfield Giants U16 20 Leeds Rhinos U16 36

The Rhinos U16s kept up their unbeaten start to the season as they won on the road at Huddersfield with Carl Ablett and Rob Burrrow’s side running in seven tries in a hard earned win.

The Rhinos led 18-4 at half time having fell behind early to the first of two tries from Huddersfield centre Jake Wardle. The visitors responded well but were left frustrated at times with too many dropped passes for the either coaches liking. The Rhinos finally hit the front when scrum half Jack Walker threw a dummy and raced through the line to score and converted his own try to edge his side in front. 

Walker crossed for his second try after another piece of good awareness from dummy half before replacement hooker Eddie Wilcox set up skipper Cameron Smith for his side's third try with a break from half way before passing to the loose forward 30 metres out. Walker converted both tries to make it 18-4 at the break. 

Leeds struck first at the start of the second half as Wilcox and Walker combined to open up the Giants defence, the latter drawing the last man before passing to Smith to score his second. The Rhinos looked out of sight when Walker kicked his fourth goal of the afternoon to put his side into a 24-4 lead. 

That lead was extended when second row Dyson Nicholson started and finished a lovely flowing move down the right as he offloaded to Nathan Waring, playing against his former club for the first time since his close season move, who then returned the favour to Nicholson when he continued to support the break. The conversion was missed but Leeds were now 28-4 in front. 

Credit must go to Huddersfield, who continued to battle hard and were rewarded with three unanswered tries next. Wardle scored his second before winger Lewis Fletcher finished well twice out wide. That gave the home side hope of a major upset having got the scoreline back to 28-20 but the Rhinos kicked on in the closing stages to seal  the win. 

The sixth try was scored by England Youth squad member Harry Newman when he was alert to a cross field kick and the former Newsome Panthers player had a simple run in towards the end to complete the win as the ball was fed wide to him in space.
