Leeds Rhinos U19 31 Huddersfield Giants U19 18

Chris Plume’s side continued their impressive recent form with a well earned victory over Huddersfield Giants at Stanningley.

The Giants had done the double over the Under 19s last season including a 30-4 hammering at Leeds and they took and early lead in this encounter when prop Elliot Morris made the most of an offload near the Rhinos line to score. The try was converted to give his side a 6-0 lead. 

The Rhinos hit back after 22 minutes when quick ball along the back line put Tommy Brierley in space and the centre was able to draw the cover before offloading one handed to winger Billy McDermott to score in the corner. Jordan Lilley added an excellent conversion from the touchline to level the score at 6-6.

Leeds hit the front for the first time four minutes later when Ben Frankland broke through in midfield and then released Elliot Minchella to score.

The Rhinos gave themselves a significant lead by scoring the next try as they turned pressure into points. This time Brierley stepped back across the defence as they slid across and went through. Lilley converted both tries to make it 18-12 with five minutes to go until half time. 

Huddersfield did get a try back just before the break when loose forward Mikey Wood proved too strong near the line and Izaac Farrell added his second conversion to leave the game finely balanced at 18-12 at half time. 

The Rhinos sealed the game with two more tries in the scdond half. The first came from good work by Ashton Golding chasing up a high kick, he won possession back for his team before the ball was spread wide for Ryan Jones to cross for his second try of the season. Lilley was once again on target with the conversion from wide out to give his side a 24-12 lead. 

Centre Jack Norfolk then struck on the hour mark following good work by the forwards, Norfolk was alert to the break by Lilley and supported his run to take the ball close to the line and power his way over. Lilley's conversion made it 30-12 and the win looked confirmed for the home side. 

Huddersfield, to their credit, never gave in and they got a try back when Morris went over for his second try however, following a flurry of missed drop goal attempts, good work by Minchella and Norfolk, Joe Sanderson coolly slotted over the drop goal to seal the win.
