Leeds Rhinos 42 Hull FC 10

The Rhinos are set to face Huddersfield in the Elimination Play Off next Friday at the Galpharm after a massive win over Hull FC at Headingley Carnegie.

Brian McDermott was forced to shuffle his team around with Carl Ablett ruled out through concussion so Brett Delaney moved to centre alongside Zak Hardaker.

The game was played in tricky handily after a heavy downpour in the afternoon and light rain in the build up to kick off. However, it was Leeds who settled into their stride quickest and the forwards who led the charge especially Kylie Leuluai, who produced three lung bursting charges to get the Rhinos going.

The Rhinos were keen to build up pressure on the Hull line and after a repeat set eventually the Hull line broke. A cross field kick from Sinfield was caught by Ryan Hall on the touchline and he then passed back inside one handed to the on rushing Jamie Jones-Buchanan who glided through to score. Sinfield added the touchline conversion to make it 6-0 after ten minutes.

After that, Leeds were guilty of too many errors to be able to build on their opening score and Hull camped themselves in the Rhinos. It took some fantastic goal line defence to keep the Airlie Birds out, In particular Zak Hardaker produced a number of intuitive tackles as he came out of the line to snuff the chance out.

The Rhinos had a long spell of pressure near the Hull line following two drop outs and a couple of penalties however they were unable to find a second score. When Leeds got their next penalty chance, Sinfield opted for goal and extended his side’s lead to 8-0.

Leeds went over for their second try with five minutes to go until half time when Brent Webb passed behind his back out to the wing. The ball bounced but Ben Jones-Bishop picked up and went at the corner. Sinfield was off target from the South Stand touchline but his side now led 12-0.

It got even better with the final play of the half when Ryan Bailey produced a fine offload to set Brent Webb away for a simple try for the full back. Sinfield added the conversion to make the half time score 18-0.

Hull knew they needed the next score to stand a chance of getting back into the game and they got it through Richard Whiting. A great offload round the back from Jordan Turner gave Whiting the smallest of gaps to score in the corner and he took it, although it came at a price as the three last ditch Rhinos defenders crashed into him and he had to leave the field. Hull’s hopes were raised even further when Tickle added the touchline conversion.

However two tries in ten minutes turn the game decisively back in favour of the home side. The visiting supporters were not happy with referee Ben Thaler for the first score after he awarded Leeds a penalty when Hull dragged Jones-Bishop into touch after the tackle had been completed. However, the Rhinos did not wait to argue the merits of the decision and four tackles later, Weller Hauraki shoved off the attempted tackle by Mark O’Meley and then Cameron Phelps to score. Sinfield converted to make it 24-6.

Nine minutes later the skipper himself finished off a fine move that cover nearly 70 metres. Sinfield got the move going before Burrow released Delaney. The centre produced a great break before passing back inside to Webb, who tipped a pass on to Sinfield who raced in from 30 metres out. He added the conversion himself to make it 30-6.

With ten minutes to go, Headingley Carnegie witnessed a piece of history as Danny McGuire became only the fifth player in the club's history to score 200 tries when he finished off a good move close to the Hull line to score. Sinfield added the conversion.

Hull rallied late on and got a consolation try through Tom Briscoe however Leeds and Ryan Bailey had the last word as the prop, who continued his great recent form in this win, dragged his body over the for his first try at home since July 2007. Sinfield added the conversion to make the final score 42-10.
