Leeds Rhinos U16 34 Wigan Warriors U16 14

Leeds Rhinos U16s produced an impressive win against their counterparts from Wigan Warriors in their biggest game of the season so far running six tries to three for a well deserved victory in wet and muddy conditions at Stanningley.

The Rhinos were forced to make a late change to their starting line up with Oly Adamson ruled out with a hand injury and replaced in the starting line up by Ewan Lewis, Ninian Donnelly was drafted onto the bench.

An Under 15 Rhinos side had lost out at Newcastle last time out but with the more experience heads back in the side for the Wigan clash they were soon back on the front foot.

The home side ran in three early tries to take control of the game. The first came from half back Harry Anderson, who showed great strength to hold off three would be tacklers to score. Winger Liam Tindall then benefitted from good work by East Leeds youngster Jack Mallinson to get over in the corner for the Rhinos second try before Joe Burton scored the try of the game with a 90 metre break from a scrum near the Rhinos line. The Rhinos now led 16-0 before Wigan got a try back through their centre before half time to make it 16-6 at the break.

Leeds kept up the pressure after the interval. Ahjay Wallace proved a real handful for the Wigan defence near their line and he set up the position for Iwan Stephens to continue his impressive season so far with another try.

Wigan got a second try after that but it was a brief respite for the visitors as the Rhinos hit back through Lewis Delaney, who ran a great line to cut inside the tiring defence.

The Rhinos sixth and final try was excellently finished by Tindall as he raced back inside off his wing and evaded several tackles to score next to the posts.

Wigan did cross for the final try but the Rhinos were good value for their victory.
