Leeds Rhinos Women made a brilliant start to the defence of their Challenge Cup with a huge win over York City Knights.

Leeds opened the scoring in their opening set, Danika Priim laying the platform with a fantastic offload on her first drive back from injury,

Tasha Gaines, Sophie Robinson and Hann Butcher all went close before Courtney Hill ran it on the last to see herself open the scoring, converting the try to make it 6-0 inside two minutes.

Leeds went back to back as Gaines went over from dummy half, the intelligent rake spotting a gap close to the line to make more easy points for the Rhinos, Courtney Hill once more on hand to push Leeds out to a 12-0 lead.

Sophie Nuttall opened the set by getting the Rhinos to halfway from kick off, Priim taking the next drive and once more freeing the arm, this time setting away Hanna Butcher, the Rhinos half sprinting free to score out on the right and Hill nudging the Rhinos to an 18-0 lead.

Centre Chloe Kerrigan had been denied just minutes earlier, but this time she would have retribution, Courtney Hill keeping the defence on strings, showing the ball and double pumping before freeing Kerrigan to race 30 metres and turn the fullback inside out. Hill continuing her good form off the boot to make it 24-0.

York’s error count was beginning to cause issues, as the latest mistake came on their own 20. Leeds moving the ball and on the last going to the right on the third, Sophie Robinson collecting and  spinning out of contact and showing great strength to ground the ball, Hill missing her first of the day.

The Knights were desperate to escape their own half with the ball and this would cause York to make an error from a forced offload, knocking the ball on. Leeds showing great patience with ball in hand and Courtney Hill would have her second try in near identical fashion, adding the extras from next to the sticks to make it 34-0

Leeds next points would come from a Courtney Hill Crossfield kick on the last, the ball superbly claimed up high by Suze Hill who then somehow slipped the ball away to put Sophie Nuttall into the corner to score, Hill unable to convert from the wing as Leeds took a 38-0 lead.

The forward pack would once more lay the foundations of another attack, Priim with a huge drive up the middle making 20 plus metres post contact with her powerful leg drive, Powell spotting players dragged into the middle and throwing a huge cut out ball to a surging Chloe Kerrigan to have her second. Courtney Hill kicking Leeds further ahead.

Manina Spurr would put an assist next to her name as she shook herself free of a would be tackler and dumping the ball away basketball style to Caitlin Beevers for her first of the game out on the left flank, C.Hill converting to make it 50-0.

Over a year since her  last game of Rugby League, a resurgent Danika Priim drove the ball up hard and straight, dropping low as fast as possible to score on her return from the dreaded ACL, C.Hill on hand to extend the lead even further.

Caitlin Beevers then came up with the most freakish individual try you will see in some time. The Engalnd international collecting the ball in her own 20 metre line, weaving and bobbing in and out of unrushing defenders, showing incredible confidence and talent to score under the posts Courtney Hill converting once more 62-0.

Courney Hill completed her hat-trick at the midpoint of the second half, taking on the line, squeezing between two defenders and dropping low to score, Hill taking the woodwork with her conversion attempt.

The Rhinos would see the game out with another try, Suze Hill intercepting the loose pass and racing clear before being pulled down short of the line. Two plays later and Courtney Hill supplied the killer pass to put Suze Hill over in the corner to finish the game on a high and with a final score of 70 points to nil.
