Leeds Rhinos U19 20 Warrington Wolves U19 32

The Rhinos U19s suffered only their second defeat of the season as they lost out to Warrington Wolves at Stanningley just before Easter.

Chris Plume's side were looking to back up their impressive win over Catalans Dragons in France five days earlier but they fell behind early on with Warrington crossing for the opening two tries.

The first came from an error near twenty metres from the home line and from the base of the scrum, the Wolves put a move on to get the ball wide and winger David Johnston cut back inside to evade the attempted tackle of Ashton Golding to score. 

The Wolves doubled their advantage when they moved the ball back to the other side and opposite winger Jack Fox managed to hold off Matty While to score.

Both conversions were missed and the Rhinos managed to level the game with two tries of their own. Billy McDermott hit back for the home side when he took Jordan Lilley's cross field kick to score before Golding went close next for the home side. That attack put the Wolves on the back foot and quick hands along the back line gave Tommy Brierley space to score. Both conversions were also missed to leave the score level at 8-8.

The see-saw nature of the game continued after that with the Wolves crossing for a long range try when scrum half Brad Stanway broke through before putting in Johnston in for his second try to leave the score at 12-8 to the Wolves at the break.

Leeds looked set to level the game again at the start of the season however Warrington were fastest to react to a loose ball from Lilley's kick towards the in goal and they broke 95m down field with full back Jack Johnson finishing off between the posts, giving Harvey Livett a simple conversion chance to extend the lead to 18-8.

Crucially Warrington then crossed for the next try. Johnson did well to collect a through kick and that set up the position from which Harvey Livett was able to get over for the try. 

Leeds did get a try back when Jack Norfolk and Nyle Flynn combined to make the most of an error from the Wolves from a high kick to put Ryan Jones in for a try in the corner. 

However, scrum half Stanway then glided through a gap for the visitors to keep the Rhinos at arms length and despite another try from prop George Milton, who continued him impressive try scoring run this season, Leeds were now too far adrift to trouble the scoreline. 

Warrington wrapped up the win with a second try for full back Johnson and the Rhinos were left to rue the errors that cost them the chance to keep up the pressure on league leaders Wigan.
