Leeds Rhinos Under-19s were frustrated in their final match of the 2021 season as Chev Walker’s side were defeated 18-12 by Hull FC Under-19s at Emerald Headingley.

The first half was dominated by the visitors, who took the upper hand thanks to tries from Jude Ferreira and Alex Gibson. Coming off the back of a big win against Newcastle Thunder, the young Rhinos tried to gain the upper hand through Levi Edwards and Ben Sheils, who both made great breaks to try and set Leeds up to score. Gibson also had the first scoring opportunity as he followed up a grubber kick from Callum Rutland but the loose forward was too quick and was offside.

Ferreira opened the game up with his try on fifteen minutes to put Richard Tate’s side ahead. Obi Ene, who was making his academy debut for Leeds, played the ball incorrectly and gifted the black and whites the ball 30 metres from the try line. Davy Litten came close to scoring but as Hull moved the ball across the line, Jacob Hookem and Keiran Masike connected to open up space for Ferreira to score in the corner.

The visitors continued to dominate and found themselves back on Leeds’ try line shortly after scoring, only this time Ferreira couldn’t finish in the corner. It was only a matter of time before Hull struck again though; Gibson powering his way over from a short pass by Rutland. Ben McNamara converted both tries to make the score 12-0.

The score remained the same until the end of the first half but Leeds were unlucky not to get over for a try in the final moments; Edwards finishing off a great move involving Joe Hird and Ben Mayhew but the referee called Mayhew’s final pass forward.

 

Leeds started the second half brightly as they looked to overturn the twelve point deficit but were three tries down after 50 minutes as Hull FC struck again.

A try had been coming for Tate’s side after substitute Finlay Yeaman intercepted a pass by Morgan to run for the try line but Coby Nichol did well to drag him down. Although they then turned the ball over trying to put Ferreira in for a second try, the black and whites had the ball back again after a Leeds attack broke down and this time made it count as Litten pounced on a Hookem kick to score.

The Rhinos were starting to match Hull blow for blow but just lacked the finesse to score their first points of the game. Ene was denied again after Edwards did well to open space on the edge for the winger to score, but the pass was forward again, plus Ethan Spear and Jack Sinfield also came close but with no reward.

Substitute Spear finally broke Leeds’ duck ten minutes from time after he made a lively introduction. Hull had made Leeds start their set on their own try line but that didn’t deter the men in blue and amber as Hall poke through the defensive line before offloading for Spear, who beat three defenders to score under the posts.

It was then two in two minutes for Leeds as captain Oli Field brought the score to within six points. The Rhinos were refusing to lie down and Sinfield led the charge with his break through the Hull line. Streaking into the backfield, the young half back timed his pass to perfection to send his captain through to score and then Mallinson added the extras.

The home side just ran out of time though as they left themselves too much to do in not enough time. There were opportunities for Walker’s men, none more than Edwards’ break down the edge, but again they tried to force the play and ended up losing the ball, all but sealing the win for Hull FC.
