Leeds Rhinos 66 Toronto Wolfpack 12

Richard Agar’s team produced another impressive display as they ran in eleven tries to defeat Toronto Wolfpack at Emerald Headingley with Rob Lui and Luke Gale both crossing twice.

Leeds Rhinos opened the scoring after just four minutes when Brad Dwyer spotted the smallest of gaps near the post and forced his way over from close range. Rhyse Martin had the simple conversion to make it 6-0.

The lead was doubled five minutes later when Richie Myler finished off a lovely flowing move which involved a sublime piece of skill from Luke Gale in the build up as the make shift full back continued on his rich vein of form from the previous weeks win over Warrington.

The visitors hit back soon after that. The Wolfpack had looked dangerous when Bodene Thompson broke down field only to be stopped by a vital tackle from Myler. However, they moved the ball across the field and Konrad Hurrell had the ball batted from his grasp near the line and Toronto captain Josh McCrone was quickest to react as he picked up to score. Gareth O’Brien added the conversion to make it 12-6 after 18 minutes.

However, it was one way traffic after that as Leeds score four more tries before half time. The first came from Luke Gale, as he marked his 300th career appearance with a try after good work by Rob Lui and Brad Dwyer.

Then Lui crossed for a double. His first came after Konrad Hurrell had forced a repeat set and Lui threw a dummy near the line and raced through the gap to score. The next was down to Harry Newman as the centre kept the ball alive on the last tackle and popped up the offload to Lui to score. Martin converted all three tries to make it 30-6.

The Rhinos rounded off the half with a try on the hooter for the third week in succession, a chip over the top found Newman, who stooped low to pick up the ball before offloading to Handley to score. Martin’s conversion made it 36-6 at the break.

With the scoreline so lopsided at the break the start of the second half was a scrappy affair and it took a second try from Toronto, scored by youngster Jack Wells to kick start the Rhinos.

Leeds scored their first points of the second half when Cameron Smith took Adam Cuthbertson’s offload and stretched out one handed to score.

Mikolaj Oledzki then got in on the try scoring when he kept driving for the line after the initial tackle before freeing his arm to score. Martin converted both tries to extend the Rhinos lead to 48-12.

The Rhinos were in control now and it was not long before Luke Gale had crossed for his second try. He set up Hurrell on a rampaging run and then continued to run in support to take the return pass and scamper over between the posts.

Smith returned the favour from Cuthbertson earlier in the game to put the latter over fro the Rhinos tenth try when he offloaded near the line and the biggest cheer of the night came in the final minute when Hurrell rampaged his way over the line. Richie Myler looked certain to score when he was hauled down inches short. Toronto were reduced to 12 men when McCrone was sin binned for holding Myler down and from the ensuing penalty, Hurrell cut back in field and set his sights on the try line. Martin made it eleven goals from eleven attempts to wrap up the 66-12 win that took the Rhinos top of Super League on the night.
