Leeds Rhinos 48 Wakefield Trinity Wildcats 22

The Rhinos enjoyed a landmark win over Wakefield on Easter Monday with a bumper crowd seeing Kevin Sinfield score his 4,000th career point and Rob Burrow cross for two tries to bring up 1,000 points for the club.

Leeds Rhinos arrived back at Headingley Carnegie looking to build on the Good Friday win over Castleford with another derby clash, this time against Wakefield.
 
The Wildcats were on the back of a six game losing run that had seen them sink to the foot of the Super League table.
 
Leeds took control of the game early on with Ryan Hall and Zak Hardaker crossed for tries either side of an effort from Tim Smith for the visitors. Sinfield converted both to become only the fourth player in the history of the game to score 4,000 career points. However, despite them dominating possession, Leeds found themselves level at 12-12 when Craig Hall intercepted and went the length of the field.
 
However, that was the cue for Burrow, who started at scrum half, to pop up with two tries, the first of which brought up his personal milestone. Watkins crossed for a fifth Rhinos try on the hooter after Jarrod Sammut had grabbed a try back for Wakefield. Sinfield made it six from six with the boot to keep his side well in front at 30-16 at half time.
 
The start of the second half was a tight affair but the Rhinos finally broke the deadlock when Danny McGuire produced a wonderful pass with his first touch to put Ash Handley in for a try in the corner.
 
One of the biggest cheers of the day was reserved for prop Andy Yates when he crossed for his first try for the club. Sinfield again added the conversion to put his side into a 42-16 lead.
 
Both teams traded late tries with Daniel Smith crossing against his old club after Kallum Watkins had scored his second try of the game to make the final score 48-22.
