Leeds Rhinos 10 Warrington Wolves 29

Leeds Rhinos lost out for the first time at home this season as Warrington completed a league double over the home side as Kevin Sinfield became only the 4th player ever to play 500 games for the club.

The Rhinos arrived back at Headingley Carnegie after back to back away games looking to build on their impressive run of recent form against a Warrington side who have only won once since they inflicted the Rhinos only defeat at the start of March.
 
Leeds started strongly and camped themselves in the Wolves half in the opening five minutes however Warrington made the most of their first real attack. Ash Handley was adjudged to have knocked on a high kick as he was challenged by Joel Monaghan. Initially the visitors had a try disallowed by the video officials when for a double movement but having gone back for the scrum the ball was moved wide and Gene Ormsby was fastest to react to a through kick to touch down in the corner. Ratchford missed his conversion attempt from near the touchline but his side led 4-0 after 11 minutes.
 
That lead was doubled six minutes later when Richie Myler dummied to kick in midfield before going through a gap and passing to Ratchford, who kicked for the corner for Monaghan to beat Handley to the touch down. Despite home supporters calling for a forward pass from Myler the try was awarded and the Wolves had an 8-0 lead.
 
The Rhinos found themselves further behind after 24 minutes when Ashton Sims powered through the Rhinos goal line defence to score between the posts. Ratchford had no problem this time with the conversion and his side led 14-0.
 
Leeds finally managed to get a foothold in the game in the final minute of the half.  After a long period of sustained pressure on the Wolves line the visitors finally cracked. Adam Cuthbertson broke from half way and, although he was stopped, Warrington were on the back foot. Quick hands along the back line put Kallum Watkins in space and the winger went over in the corner. Sutcliffe was unable to add the conversion to leave the half time score 14-4 to Tony Smith’s side.
 
The first try in the second half always looked like it would be crucial in terms of the momentum of the game and it was the Wolves who got it with Man of Steel Daryl Clark spotting a gap on half way before breaking clear. He was supported by two players and eventually it was Ben Currie who went over for the try. Ratchford kicked the conversion and his side had a strong lead at 20-4.
 
The biggest cheer of the night from the home fans came midway through the second half when Kevin Sinfield came off the bench to become only the fourth man in the history of the club to make 500 appearances.
 
However, Leeds could not build on that lift in momentum and when Ormsby cut in from the wing he was able to gift Roy Asotasi a try between the posts. Ratchford added the conversion and a subsequent long range penalty to give his side a 28-4 lead.
 
The Rhinos finally hit back when Mitch Achurch latched onto McGuire’s pass and held off four would be tacklers before stretching out to score. Sinfield added tehe conversion to cut the gap to 28-10 but with time running out.
 
Declan Patton killed off any faint hopes of a come back with a drop goal seven minutes from time and Warrington were able to wind down the clock to secure a 29-10 win.
