Leeds Rhinos 52 Hull KR 10

Leeds Rhinos produced a comprehensive performance to secure a 52-10 win over Hull KR at Emerald Headingley with Cameron Smith and Harry Newman both crossing for two tries whilst their was one apiece for Jack Walker, Ash Handley, James Donaldson, Konrad Hurrell and Richie Myler.

Hull KR were forced to make a late change just before kick off when Jamie Ellis was ruled out in the warm up. His spot in the starting line up was taken by Jordan Abdull.

Leeds looked to seized the immediate initiative as Rovers regrouped and that resulted in Brad Dwyer and Cameron Smith being held up over the line. However, it was not long before the home side did open the scoring. The score from a sweeping move that took Rob Lui through a gap before he found Luke Briscoe in support. The winger, on his first appearance of the season, did well to free his arms in the tackle and offloaded to Harry Newman to score after nine minutes. Luke Gale, who captained the side on the night, added the conversion to give his side the perfect start.

The Rhinos doubled their lead after 20 minutes with a superbly executed try. It started with a blockbuster run from Konrad Hurrell before play was moved to the opposite wing after Newman and Briscoe had kept the play alive. Rob Lui kicked wide allowing Briscoe to leap highest and one handed bat the ball back down to Newman to score his second try of the game. Gale was on target again to make it 12-0.

Leeds kept up the pressure and increased their lead further. Briscoe had kept them on the front foot with a break from the restart. Hurrell was harassing the Rovers defence with every carry and he cut back into midfield before produced a low kick towards the upright. The ball rebounded away from the defender and Cameron Smith was on hand to pick up and put the ball down for the score. Gale added the conversion and a subsequent penalty to give his side a 20-0 lead that they were good value for.

With the final play of the first half, Rovers gave themselves a lifeline with a break away try that was eventually finished by Greg Minikin as he rebounded off the floor from a tackle and dived over the line. The conversion attempt was missed so it remained 20-4 at the break.

Any hopes that the visitors might have had of a comeback were extinguished seven minutes into the second half when Jack Walker conjured a try from nowhere to do through two would be tacklers and race ahead to score.

Leeds then crossed for a long range effort started by Harry Newman 15m from his own line before he found Ash Handley in support on halfway and the winger scored his second try of the season as he galloped clear of the defenders to touch down between the posts. Gale converted both to put his side 32-4 in front.

Cameron Smith then supported the run by Walker near the line to cut a fine line back inside to score his second try of the game before Rovers had a slice of good luck for their second try of the game. Leeds had defended their line well but a bouncing offload was plucked out of the air by Jordan Abdull for the half back to score the simplest of tries. Ryan Brierley’s conversion made it 38-10.

However, with ten minutes to go Hurrell got a richly deserved try as he chased a kick to the corner before punishing the error by Rovers, picking up the loose ball and, holding off two defenders, slammed the ball down in the corner. Gale missed his first kick of the night from the South Stand touchline but his side were well in control at 42-10.

Leeds finished with a flourish with James Donaldson touching down against his old club and then Richie Myler brought up the half century with the final play of the game as he reacted quickest to a short kick to regather out of the air, spin and touch down. Luke Gale added the conversion to make the final score 52-10.
