Salford v Leeds Rhinos super league fri 26th july 2018 Tom Briscoe try for Leeds

The Rhinos brought their  regular season to a disappointing end, with a 38-22 defeat against a 12-man Salford side at the AJ Bell Stadium.

The visitors were without Jamie Jones-Buchanan and Richie Myler who failed late tests but they welcomed back Nathaniel Peteru to the squad for the first time since May.

Leeds made a great start with in form hooker, Brad Dwyer, getting the scoring underway for the Rhinos with a try in under two minutes and Liam Sutcliffe slotted over the conversion.

Ed Chamberlain looked like he was through for Salford, racing from his own half and spurred on by the cheering home fans, but a cool head a good defence from Ashton Golding stopped the centre on his run.  Salford’s persistence was eventually rewarded when Ryan Lannon found a way through for his team’s first try Chamberlain was unable to level the game, with his conversion attempt just going wide.

The Reds built on this almost immediately when Niall Evalds collected a pass and raced away unchallenged.  Chamberlain was on target with his second conversion attempt to put his side 10-6 in front.

There was no let up for the Rhinos and on 15 minutes Salford were in again, when Sutcliffe was unable to gather the ball from a Salford kick and Jackson Hastings gathered the ball to score on his debut.

Ed Chamberlain extended the Reds’ lead with a try in the corner and then added the tricky touchline conversion.

Salford were reduced to 12 men when Lee Mossop was given a red card for a head butt on Brad Singleton and the Rhinos soon made the most of their extra man to reduce the deficit, with Liam Sutcliffe using his strength to crash over, despite the efforts of two Salford defenders and then converting his own try.

Leeds looked stronger after the try and Peteru came close to crossing on two occasions but was held up over the line. They were dealt a blow however when captain, Carl Ablett was forced to leave the field with an injury.

The Reds looked dangerous as the half drew to a close and Rob Lui edged his side further in front with a try on the brink of half time.  Chamberlain converted to see his side go in at the break with a 26-12 lead.

Leeds started the second half  well and looked stronger defensively and after they were able to build some pressure, Joel Moon broke the line before passing to Tom Briscoe and the winger went over in the corner on 55 minutes but Sutcliffe’s conversion just went wide.

Mistakes from the Rhinos allowed their hosts to take back control and after a fumble in the tackle Salford won possession and they got the ball away to Evalds who crossed in the corner. Chamberlain’s conversion making it 32-16.

Josh Jones was next on the scoreboard for the Reds when he collected a grubber kick from Lui to slide over.  Once again Chamberlain was on target to extend his tea;s lead to 38-16 with ten minutes to go.

The Rhinos did have spells in the closing stages where they were able to pressure Salford and with 4 minutes remaining Matt Parcell stretched out to collect Golding’s chip for a late try and although Sutcliffe was on target with the conversion it was too late for the Rhinos to mount a fight back.
