Leeds Rhinos produced a commanding performance to make it three wins in a row in the Betfred Super League with a comprehensive 36-0 win at Emerald Headingley.

The tone was set inside the opening minutes with a big hit by Matt Prior on Blake Austin that stopped the Great Britain international in his tracks.

Leeds opened the scoring after six minutes when Jack Walker bumped off an initial attempted tackle and then spotted that the defence had slid passed him and he regathered himself to race through the gap to score. Rhyse Martin added the conversion to give his side a 6-0 lead.

The Rhinos kept up the pressure on attack and defence and, having forced Ben Currie into an error, they moved the ball up field with big carries from Ava Seumanufagai and Konrad Hurrell before Luke Gale weighted his pass perfectly to put Walker away again. He was just caught by his boot laces but a second effort earned the Rhinos a penalty and Martin kicked the penalty to extend the lead to 8-0 after 13 minutes.

The Rhinos suffered a blow midway through the first half when full back Jack Walker had to leave the action. The youngster had darted out of dummy half and made 10 metres but emerged from the tackle limping. He tried to run the injury off but eventually had to be removed from the game, replaced by Richie Myler, who was pressed into emergency cover at full back.

Despite the set back, Leeds remained resolute and Brad Dwyer came up with a sensational tackle to stop a certain try for Tom Lineham when the winger looked certain to score in the corner.

Leeds extended their lead after 29 minutes when Warrington were caught offside near their own line and Martin was on target again to extend the home side’s advantage to 10-0.

Richard Agar’s side then extended their lead in the final minute of the first half when Richie Myler came onto Gale’s pass before racing between two defenders to score against his former club. Martin’s conversion attempt faded across the face of the posts but the Rhinos were good value for their 14-0 lead at the break.

Leeds were not content to sit on that advantage and went further in front when a loose ball was swooped up by Myler, who offloaded to Brad Dwyer to go over against his old club. Video referee Chris Kendall had a good look at the build up but eventually the score was awarded to Dwyer. Martin added the conversion to make it 20-0 after 47 minutes.

Warrington were reduced to 12 men when Ben Murdoch-Masila was sin binned for a high tackle on Alex Mellor as the Rhinos man slipped and fell low. From the ensuing set, Konrad Hurrell ran hard at the Wolves defences, shrugging off Josh Charnley before forcing the ball down under pressure. Video referee Kendall agreed with Robert Hicks on field call of a try and the score was awarded. Martin was unable to add the conversion from the North Stand touchline but Leeds were in control at 24-0.

Leeds pressed home their numerical advantage when Ava Seumanufagai took Dwyer’s short pass, spun out of the tackle and stretched out to score beside the posts. Martin added the conversion to bring up the 30 point mark.

The home side finished things off with one final try. Adam Cuthbertson created the next score with a bursting run up field before Myler spotted Ash Handley in space out wide and threw the miss pass to put the winger away and he raced between two defenders to score. Martin added the conversion from wide out to give his side a 36-0 victory.
