Leeds Rhinos 26 Warrington Wolves 4

By Will Hopper

It wasn’t an unlucky Friday 13th for Leeds Rhinos as they defeated Warrington Wolves 26-4 in the final round of the Betfred Super League.

An early yellow card sent Warrington’s Daryl Clark to the sin bin and gifted the Rhinos the perfect opportunity to build pressure. Leeds had plenty of possession inside the Wolves’ half but couldn’t quite capitalise with the extra man advantage.

The Rhinos finally broke through when Rob Lui intercepted a loose pass and ran almost the whole length of the pitch. Lui didn’t quite have the legs to make it over the try line himself but from the resulting tackle, Liam Sutcliffe darted through the trailing Wolves defenders and dove over beneath the posts. Rhyse Martin casually converted the try to give the home side a 6-0 lead.

Martin then sent his side into the changing rooms at half time with an 8-0 lead after he converted a penalty to continue his perfect start with the boot.

There must have been two Luke Briscoe’s on the pitch for the Rhinos as he was seemingly everywhere in the second half. Firstly, the winger almost scored but was brought down just short of the try line on the last tackle. Despite not scoring, it was Briscoe who then proved crucial in preventing the visitors from scoring their first points of the match with a brilliant diving tackle that just pushed Tom Lineham over the sideline. Then Briscoe almost scored again when Rhyse Martin’s grubber kick held up in goal but he was just beaten to the ball by Lineham.

The Rhinos didn’t have to wait long after that chance to score their second try of the match as Rob Lui, the man who created Leeds’ first try, scored their second. Lui broke through the gap in the Warrington defensive line and stretched out his arm to ground the ball. Martin kept his 100% kicking accuracy intact as his conversion sailed through the uprights to push the score out to 14-0.

The Wolves did score their first points of the night 10 minutes from fulltime with a try from Josh Charnley but it very much proved to be in consolation as the Rhinos then immediately marched down the pitch to score their third try of the match.

It was Adam Cuthbertson who scored the try with the help of an assist from the retiring Jamie Jones-Buchanan. JJB then stepped up to attempt the conversion and the roof nearly came off Emerald Headingley as the kick was perfectly placed through the sticks.

Luke Briscoe was eventually rewarded for his earlier efforts when he scored in the final minute of the match. The Rhinos did brilliantly to keep the ball alive with a number of offloads before working the ball out to the right where Briscoe sidestepped the Wolves defender to touch the ball down. Rhyse Martin added the extras on the sound of the final hooter to end the game and the season with a 26-4 victory.
