Leeds Rhinos 40 Warrington Wolves 0

Hooker Matt Parcell crossed for a hat trick in the Rhinos 40-0 win over Warrington Wolves at Headingley Carnegie.

The first fifteen minutes of the game were played at a frantic pace as the May Bank Holiday weekend got off to a sun drenched start.

Both teams showed clear intent to make their mark on the game and it was Warrington who had the first chance when Liam Sutcliffe knocked Kurt Gidley’s kick down in his own in goal but Matty Russell could not get the ball down before the dead ball line.

It was a let off for Leeds and they made it count as they put the Wolves under pressure after that. A poor kick from Chris Hill turned possession over to Leeds before Tom Briscoe broke clear on halfway. He had options on both side and passed right to Matt Parcell for the hooker to open the scoring. Liam Sutcliffe converted the try to give his side a 6-0 lead after 15 minutes.

Once again Warrington went on the attack and Leeds had to produce some top defence to keep them out, most notably a tackle by Jamie Jones-Buchanan on Stefan Ratchford. The home side were dealt a blow when Ashton Golding limped off after suffering a leg injury as he looked to break clear.

The Rhinos were not put off their stride however and they crossed for a second try when Liam Sutcliffe made it four successive games with a try as he held off Ryan Atkins before reaching out to score in the corner. He narrowly missed his conversion attempt but the Rhinos now led 10-0 after 31 minutes.

There was still time left for Leeds to extend their lead before the break but it was in controversial circumstances as Tom Lineham was penalised in possession for a push on Stevie Ward. McGuire had no hesitation in pointing to the posts and Sutcliffe made it 12-0 at half time.

The Rhinos made the perfect start to the second half as Parcell went over for his second try with a break from dummy half. Sutcliffe add the conversion from in front to put his side 18-0 in front.

Leeds then struck a decisive blow with a superb no look pass from Rob Burrow putting Jamie Jones-Buchanan in space and he won the race to score in the corner.

Warrington’s night got worse when Gidley hobbled off and their frustrations boiled over as Daryl Clark traded punches with Stevie Ward in an altercation that saw both players sin-binned.

Moon picked the ball up from dummy-half and scored a trademark try as he jinked his way to the line to extend Leeds’ lead before Sutcliffe added the conversion and a penalty to make it 30-0.

Burrow had given the Warrington defence a torrid time after replacing Golding and it was his break that allowed Parcell to complete his treble.

Burrow then had the last word as he raced clear to put the seal on Leeds’ biggest winning margin at Headingley Carnegie over Warrington at 40-0.
