Leeds Rhinos Women 56 Warrington Wolves Women 0

A twelve try performance from Leeds Rhinos Women saw the league leaders secure a resounding 56-0 win over Warrington Wolves Women at the Mobile Rocket Stadium; winger Tara Moxon leading the way with four tries.

New signing Eloise Hayward, who joined the club on Tuesday, made her debut at centre for the Rhinos and Lois Forsell’s side also welcomed back Hanna Butcher to the starting lineup to partner captain Courtney Winfield-Hill. Lucy Murray made her first ever start for Leeds alongside Elle Frain in the second row and Keara Bennett’s inclusion at hooker saw Orla McCallion move to loose forward.

Despite an edgy start to the match, the Rhinos got off to the perfect start as Hanna Butcher got over for the first try of the game. With only five minutes on the clock, Warrington half back Claire Mullaney spilled the ball on the fifth tackle and Leeds went on the prowl. Great work from Amy Johnson and Aimee Staveley saw the Rhinos work their way close to the try line and as Butcher went to take on Warrington’s defenders, the half back sliced through and stepped the full back to score on her return. Winfield-Hill converted to give the Rhinos a six point lead.

Leeds continued to apply pressure on their opponents; Caitlin Beevers, Fran Goldthorp and Tara Moxon all looking threatening when they had space to work. It was the debutant Eloise Hayward though that gave Leeds a two score lead. As Butcher was held up just short, Winfield-Hill elected to kick the ball on the fifth tackle and as Sophie Robinson did well to pick up the loose ball, the winger passed back inside for Hayward to finish in the corner, despite Warrington’s best efforts.Moments later, Moxon added her name to the scoresheet too, off the back of more great work by Butcher.

With the score at 14-0, Leeds had all the momentum and after Robinson and Heyward worked well to take Alice Evans back into her own in goal area, Leeds felt they had the opportunity for more points. From the drop out, Aimee Staveley’s strong carry got the Rhinos to within twenty metres of the try line and Hayward had a great chance to get over for her second of the game. Good defence from the Wolves denied her though, but they couldn’t stop hooker Keara Bennett as on the next play, she took the ball from dummy half and dived over the whitewash to score.

Winger Moxon rounded off a great personal performance in the first 40 minutes by scoring two more tries, completing her hat trick. The winger’s second try was a great solo effort as she broke down the sideline and cut back infield to get the ball down, even though she had one Warrington defender dragging her back. She then rounded off the first half by getting her third try of the game as a great move wide gave Goldthorp enough time for the centre to feed her wing partner in for the try and send the Rhinos into half time 28-0 up.

 

Six tries in the second half followed as Lois Forsell’s side sealed a resounding victory.

Catching Warrington in their in goal area once again, both Lucy Murray and Beevers were unlucky not to get over the line as Warrington tried to keep the Rhinos out. It only lasted moments though as after Winfield-Hill had nearly put Zoe Hornby over the try line, Butcher produced a nice inside pass for Orla McCallion to get over the try line. Winfield-Hill converted, taking her to 150 goals in the Women’s Super League competition.

Beevers soon added her name to the scoresheet, running out to the edge before squeezing her way through a gap to score in the corner for her 150 point for the Rhinos, before Moxon got her fourth try of the game on the hour mark; Hayward and Goldthorp connecting up well to put Moxon over.

As the Wolves tired, cracks began to show and the Rhinos exploited the opportunity, adding three more tries in the last ten minutes to retain their place at the top of the league. Another inside ball caught the Wolves napping as Aimee Staveley powered through the line and planted the ball down and Goldthorp, who had provided assists all game, got over for two tries in the last five minutes, sealing a 56-0 win for the Rhinos. First, as the Rhinos stretched the Wolves defence thanks to Winfield-Hill and Butcher, Goldthorp found herself with enough space to work and she managed to get herself through a gap and score. For her second, and Leeds’ final try of the game, following a Warrington drop out, Beevers had set Leeds up in a nice position in the centre of the field and as the ball came right again to Goldthorp, she cut through two defenders and managed to beat one more on her way to getting the ball down again and seal the win for Leeds.
