Hull KR 18 Leeds Rhinos 20

Leeds Rhinos came back from 18-12 down at half time to win 20-18 at the KCOM Craven Park with Ryan Hall adding to first half tries from Joel Moon and Jamie Jones-Buchanan and a faultless kicking display from skipper Kallum Watkins.

Hull KR took an early lead with a penalty from winger Ryan Shaw when Richie Myler and Jamie Jones-Buchanan were penalised for a second effort on Danny McGuire near the visitors line.

McGuire then played the major part in the opening try of the game. He kicked a brilliant 40:20 before racing up field to take the quick tap and put another former Rhino, prop Robbie Mulhern over the line. Shaw added the conversion to give his side an 8-0 lead after 13 minutes.

Leeds hit back nine minutes later with a sensational solo try from Joel Moon. The half back took possession 35 metres from the Hull KR line before stepping his way through the home defence, evading two tacklers before going in to score near the posts.

The Rhinos then took the lead soon after and this time it was Richie Myler who created the damage, breaking through the Hull KR line before offloading to Jamie Jones-Buchanan to score his second try of the season. Watkins converted both tries to make it 12-8 to the visitors.

The lead lasted until the 31stminute when Hull KR made the most of a long spell of pressure on the Leeds line and Tommy Lee popped up a pass to Mose Masoe to score from close range. Shaw’s conversion gave the Robins a 14-12 lead.

Shaw was able to extend that lead before half time with two more penalties as the Rhinos desperately tried to deny the home side the chance to score.

Trailing 18-12 at the break, the Rhinos came out fired up at the start of the second half with Ashton Golding in particular looking dangerous when he attacked the Rovers line. One such break saw Rovers reduced to 12 men when Masoe was sent to the sin bin for a high tackle on the full back.

Leeds managed to cross for a try just before Masoe returned with Moon timing his pass to perfection to put Ryan Hall over in the corner. Watkins added a brilliant touchline conversion to level the game.

The Rhinos had to withstand a mountain of pressure on their own line with Brett Ferres and Golding coming up with sensational last ditch tackles to deny what seemed like certain tries for Justin Carney.

However, Watkins then edged Leeds back in front as Danny Tickle was penalised for lying on Matt Parcell in the tackle. That score was with 25 minutes to go but remarkably it was the final score in the game.

Rovers had the better of the chances with both teams denied tries for forward passes. Atkins thought he had scored for Rovers whilst Ferres was denied for Leeds.
