Leeds Rhinos 44 London Broncos 24

The returning Kevin Sinfield set up the first try from the base of a scrum ten metres out, he raced for the line before off loading to Danny McGuire, he picked up the bouncing ball and found Bai to score his 11th try in just six meetings with the Broncos.

London replied through Jon Wells nine minutes later, Sykes’ conversion giving the Broncos the lead.  Luke Dorn further increased the lead when Lee Hopkins fed the scrum half after drawing the last tackle off Mathers. Sykes again converted to make it 12-4.

Leeds hit back when McGuire’s pass went behind Sinfield but he retreated, collected the ball and released Calderwood to score in the same movement.  A great team effort with the ball going through seven pairs of hands in the move included a brilliant pick up by Andrew Dunemann set up the next try for Chris McKenna.

Keith Senior handed off three would be London tacklers to score from close range. Danny McGuire then attempted the goal kicking but had similar problems to his two predecessors and despite having scored four tries to two the Rhinos still only led 16-12 at half time.

The Rhinos extended their lead at the start of the second half when McGuire picked the ball up 40 metres out and produced one of his trademark arcing runs to score in the corner.  Senior scored his second try of the game thanks to the initial break by Burrow. The Rhinos then led 26-12 after 47 minutes.

Sykes then got London back in the game after Mark Calderwood had knocked on a towering bomb.  Leeds then re-established the lead when Senior set up the try with a bulldozing run from 35 metres out before passing to McGuire as he fell, who sprinted in for his second try. Sinfield added the conversion to make it 32-18.

Video referee Steve Presley adjudged that Sinfield had not intentionally knocked the ball on as he tackled a London player which meant the subsequent one handed pick up by Lauitiiti and support of McGuire gave the Leeds man his first hat trick of the season.

Two minutes later he was in for his fourth of the game, once again it was Keith Senior who was tearing the London defence apart and he passed to McGuire to run in from twenty metres out. Sinfield converted both to make it 44-18.
There was still time for a late consolation converted try for London from Paul Sykes but this was a commanding performance from the Rhinos in the second half.
