Wakefield Trinity U19 6 Leeds Rhinos U19 32

Leeds Rhinos Under-19s grabbed their first win in nine weeks with a dominant 32-6 win over Wakefield Trinity Under-19s at the Mobile Rocket Stadium; two tries from Sam Little proving a highlight on the night.

Following their thrilling 30 all draw with Hull KR four days before, the young Rhinos made a shaky start as Jack Mallinson’s kick off went out on the full. Defending their line from a barraging Wakefield attack, Chev Walker’s side muscled up in defence and Kai Morgan cleaned up Robbie Butterworth’s fifth tackle kick to bring the ball away. Leeds then had a nice spell of possession close to Trinity’s line but couldn’t make it count as a wide move saw the ball come off the chest of Max Simpson and the ball was turned over.

Against the run of play, the home side opened the scoring with Joe Law. Leeds looked on the front foot after a charge from Nathan Snee put the Rhinos in range. A quick play of the ball from the substitute allowed Oli Burton to dive out of dummy half and break downfield but as he tried to pass to Mallinson, the offload was too far behind the half back. Kai Morgan did well to keep the ball in Leeds’ possession but as Chev Walker’s side tried to go down the edge, a fumbled pass from Alfie Edgell was swooped upon by Law, who ran the length of the field to score. Butterworth converted to make the score 6-0.

The Rhinos were allowed back in the game minutes later off the back of an error from Trinity. Leon Ruan had lost the ball once again as Wakefield tried to move the ball along the line and Leeds immediately wanted to atone for the earlier error. Mallinson tried to poke through the defensive line but Law and Luke Mearns did well to bring him down. On the next play, Morgan commanded the ball and grubber kicked for himself and regathered to score his second try of the season.

The scoreline was soon in the young Rhinos’ advantage as Luca Atkinson made it back to back tries. A penalty on Morgan from the restart gave Leeds another ten metres before Corey Hall, Snee and Alfie Edgell were allowed to roam and get the visitors to 20 metres away from the try line. On the fifth tackle, Morgan was devious again with his grubber kicks and this time it was Atkinson that was on the end to score under the posts. Mallinson converted his first of the evening to make the score 10-6.

Leeds kept attacking and before the half time whistle, Will Gatus scored the Rhinos’ third try on his return to the side. Mallinson had made a series of breaks through the Trinity line and Oli Field also came close to scoring but Billy Davies was penalised for an obstruction in the build up to the captain’s chalked off effort. Another error from Wakefield proved the home side’s undoing as Leeds moved the ball left to Mallinson, who connected nicely with Simpson to put Gatus away down the sideline. Beating two defenders, the winger dived in the corner to take the visitors’ score to 14 before Mallinson added the extras; the half time score 16-6.

The visitors kept the heat on Wakefield in the second half, adding 0 tries and keeping their opponents scoreless.

The half started slowly but after Leeds defended their own line from a barrage of Trinity attacks, outside back Hall and Mallinson got the Rhinos out of trouble. In a similar fashion to the build up for his try, Gatus had the chance to do round the side of the Wakefield defence, thanks to great work from Edgell and Simpson but the winger was brought down. Atkinson regathered his own kick on the fifth tackle to earn a repeat set on the try line but on the next play, Burton put Danny Salkeld over for his first academy try with a short pass.

Trinity continued to dominate possession of the ball and forced the young Rhinos to defend more but Walker’s side were up for the test and withstood everything Wakefield threw at them. They had their defensive efforts rewarded on the scoreboard too after Butterworth dropped a high bomb by Mallinson on his 20 metre line. Burton used another quick play of the ball to try sneak over but was held up over the line. Spinning the ball wide on the next play, Leeds’ spine connected up perfectly to open up space for Sam Little to score in the corner and make the score 26-6.

In the closing stages, a fantastic move saw Little get his second of the evening a crown a great win for the young Rhinos. Wakefield’s Isaac Shaw was unlucky in his attempted offload and the referee called it as a knock on. Leeds pounced on the opportunity and it was great to see Morgan, Mallinson and Edgell connect up smoothly and pull the Trinity defence apart. Edgell produced a clinical final pass for Simpson to break away and unselfishly, he chose to pass inside for Little to stroll in. Mallinson converted to round off a convincing 32-6 result.
