Leeds Rhinos 34 Hull FC 14

Keith Senior scored a hat trick for the Rhinos, in what turned out to be a convincing win.

Senior crossed after seven minutes, following an initial break by Marcus Bai. Sinfield added the conversion.

Hull hit back when captain Richard Horne broke through the line before drawing Mathers and putting Briscoe through, Brough this time was on target to make it 6-6.

Brough created the next try, stepping through the cover before passing back inside to Nathan Blacklock to score under the posts. Brough extending the lead to 12-6.

The Rhinos responded in expected fashion by throwing everything at Hull and with just 40 seconds left in the half the Rhinos levelled the game when Senior put Bai away to score and Sinfield’s conversion from near the touchline tied the game up at 12-12 at half time.

Hull drew first blood at the start of the second half when Cooke kicked a penalty however the Rhinos soon re-took the lead. A speculative kick across field was knocked back by Walker to McKenna, he found Calderwood who put in an inch perfect kick towards the post from twenty five metres out. Blacklock, under pressure from Burrow and having to navigate round the post, missed the pick up and Burrow reacted quickest to touch down. Sinfield’s conversion making it 18-14.

The Rhinos next try also came from a kick but a much more unlikely source, a towering bomb from Ryan Bailey. The kicked caught the whole Hull backline knapping as it sailed towards the South Stand and Keith Senior outleaped the cover to touchdown after 60 minutes, Sinfield extended the lead to 24-14.

The Rhinos were now on fire and they scored almost right from the re-start through Mathers, Sinfield’s conversion making it 30-14.

Senior then completed his hat trick which was put on a plate for him by a sensational reverse pass by Mathers to put him through.

The game ended in bizarre circumstances when, with the clock showing time up, Kevin Sinfield elected to kick a penalty for goal, only to kick the place kick to the corner, which Rob Burrow collected to touch down. Referee Richard Silverwood handed the decision onto the video referee Robert Connolly who rightly gave a no try decision.
