Leeds Rhinos 78 Workington Town 6

Leeds Rhinos got back to winning ways with a comprehensive 78-6 victory over Betfred League One outfit Workington Town at Emerald Headingley.

Whilst the Rhinos league form has been stuttering this season, they put any notion of a Cup upset to bed with a clinically, ruthless 13 minute spell at the start of the game that saw them run in four tries without the visitors touching the ball, apart from the first set from the kick off.

Leeds opened the scoring through Luke Briscoe after a cut out pass from Tui Lolohea, who started at full back in the absence of Jack Walker, put the winger away.

The Rhinos second try was almost a carbon copy but on the opposite side of the field. A long range break from Wellington Albert took the home side up field and Ashton Golding finished in the corner. Liam Sutcliffe added both conversions from the touchline to give his side a 12-0 lead.

They doubled that lead in the next two sets. Harry Newman scored the first of his three tries when he barged his way over from close range and then Wellington Albert crossed for his try in Leeds colours following a fine break by Matt Parcell in midfield.

There was a break in the scoring after that but Leeds were soon back on track with a fine solo effort by Newman as he broke from deep inside his own half before stepping the full back and running in to score between the posts.

The young centre then completed his hat trick when he was put in space down the wing and there was no way he was going to be stopped.

Workington did manage to get over for a score when Caine Barnes cut through a gap and raced clear to touch down. Forber added the conversion to make it 36-6 after 35 minutes.

Leeds extended their lead before the break when Richie Myler took matters into his own hands and ducked under one tackle before outpacing the defence to score. Sutcliffe added his sixth conversion of the half to make it 42-6 at the break.

Myler then crossed for his second try at the start of the second half when he was quickest to react to a knocked down kick and collected to score out wide before the Rhinos brought up the half century when Brett Ferres took a quick tap from the penalty and held off some tired defence to go over in the corner. Sutcliffe added both tricky conversions to give his side a 54-6 lead after 53 minutes.

Myler then completed his hat trick before being replaced by Callum McLelland on his debut when he took Albert’s offload before forcing his way over from close range.

Perhaps spurred on by Myler’s effort, Newman then went one clear of him as he went over for his fourth try of the game with a determined run down the Main Stand side.

Matt Parcell got in on the try scoring act with nine minutes to go until the end with a clever piece of play from dummy half before Ashton Golding crossed for his second try of the game as the hooter sounded.

That try in the corner left Liam Sutcliffe with an effort from the South Stand touchline to convert with the final play of the game which he did to make it 13 goals from 13 attempts and write his name in the Rhinos record books.
