RUGBY LEAGUE


ROHAN SMITH

HEAD COACH

Welcome back to Headingley Stadium and it's a big day for the

club as a whole with a big push for families to come down and

enjoy all the action from our women's and men's teams on a

great afternoon of Rugby League.

I would like to welcome our

visitors from Salford Red Devils

this afternoon. Paul Rowley’s

side are in a great vein of form

and we are preparing to face

their very best. We are aware

of how strong they are, having

lost twice to them at their place

earlier this season, so we know

we will need to be at our best.

Whilst they have a number

of key individuals, I think the

key to their success has been

their ability to play as a team,

perhaps more so than any other

side in Super League. Their

collective effort has resulted

in some big performances,

not least their big win over St

Helens last week. They are very

much a team built in their head

coach’s image, Paul Rowley

sides always like to promote the

ball and play attacking rugby

and there has been plenty of

evidence of that this season.

We have had a good week in

training this week on the back of

last Saturday’s win at Catalans.

It was a remarkable turnaround

and something that I hope the

players can draw back on as we

head into a big period of games

in the coming weeks and months.

The important part for us was to

keep believing in the process. Too

often teams can get caught up

with the scoreboard but whilst

ever the clock says you have got

the time, you have got a chance if

you believe in yourself and keep

playing. We did that and never

gave in which, in the end, gave

us the rewards we were after.

At 30-6 I thought the scoreline

wasn’t a fair reflection of the

hard work we had put in. We

were a little clunky on attack in

the first half but we were asking

questions of the Dragons and

when things swung in our favour

we made the opportunity count.

I thought it was testament to our

performance and medical staff

that we finished the game the

stronger of the two teams despite

having a man disadvantage

for most of the game. A lot of

preparation has gone on behind

the scenes to make sure we

could handle the conditions in

Toulouse and Perpignan this

summer and, in both games, I

never felt our players allowed

the conditions to be a factor for

us because of the hard work

they had put in during the build

up. With one more trip to France

to come on the August Bank

Holiday, we will need to keep

building on those preparations.

This afternoon’s game is another

double header with our league

leading Women's team getting the

day underway against their rivals

St Helens. It was great to see

so many fans inside the ground

for our last home game against

Wigan to support Lois Forsell’s

side and you could see that the

team responded to that backing

with an impressive win. We will

be cheering the team on again

this afternoon and hopefully they

can continue their good form.

Enjoy the game

NEWMAN

EXCITED BY

RED DEVILS

CHALLENGE

Leeds Rhinos centre Harry Newman says he is excited

by the challenge of taking on the in form Salford Red Devils

at Headingley this afternoon.

P

aul Rowley’s side have

lit up Super League

this season with their

attacking flair, with Ken Sio

racing for the top try scorer

award and centre Tim Lafai

topping the offloads chart.

Newman says both teams'

attacking philosophies could

lead to a classic game.

Newman has not been

surprised by the Red Devils'

charge to the play offs, he

commented, “They’ve been

playing well and although

I know that Saints are

struggling with injuries like a

lot of teams are, that doesn’t

take away from how ruthless

Salford were. I don’t think St

Helens have had that many

points put on them in a long

time but it’s a different game

this week. We’re playing well

as well and it will be a different

challenge this week for them

as it will be for us.

“I think they’ve got a fair few

threats. The back line is all

pretty dangerous. Their six,

seven and one have been

consistent for most of the

season and if you get them

working, then it helps any

team. They’ve got a couple of

strong outside backs, I know

Burgess is scoring a fair few

tries created by the centre

Lafai, who I’ll be opposite.

I’m looking forward to that

challenge. I look forward to

whoever I play against on a

weekly basis and just put my

best foot forward and try get

one over on them.

“Lafai is a completely different

player to me. He’s bigger

and powerful and I’m looking

forward to that challenge

again. I’ll bring my game and

take that to him and I’m sure

he will too. May the best one

of us win,” added Newman.

One man Newman is looking

forward to catching up with

is his former Leeds skipper

Kallum Watkins. A move to the

back row has seen Watkins

regain his place in the England

squad this season after an

injury ravaged few years and

Newman says the Salford man

was a huge influence on him

in his early years in the Rhinos

ranks. He revealed, “Kal was

great with me when he was at

Leeds. He was probably one of

the best centres in the world

at the time and to learn a lot

off him was great. He’s playing

back row now, scoring for

fun and obviously seeing him

playing well, having suffered a

major couple of injuries, is just

great to see.”

The Rhinos come into the

game off the back of huge

wins over Wigan and Catalans

and they face another play off

rival this afternoon. Reflecting

on last week’s Golden Point

win in Perpignan, Newman

admits it has given the whole

group a lift.

“It was obviously a massive

win. To come back from 30-6

down with twenty minutes

to go was pretty impressive.

We just spoke about staying

in there as long as we could. I

thought there was moments

in the game that didn’t go our

way and the score line didn’t

eflect the actual match but

for us to stick together and

come back is huge.

“We’ve got six games left and

it’s all to play for. There’s three

points between us and fifth

and a couple points off the

teams below us. It’s all very

tight and as a few teams play

each other, there are a few big

games coming up. I’m looking

forward to the challenge

over the next few weeks and

staying consistent.”

The majority of the Rhinos

remaining games are at

Headingley and Newman

believes the Leeds fans can

play a huge part in getting

the team home in the coming

weeks. He added, “It’s massive.

We had that period when we

were away from home for a

few weeks and you only have

to look at the Wigan game

to see what this atmosphere

can be like. The fans turned

up in massive numbers and

hopefully they’ll do the same

this week. It’s like having an

extra player when the South

Stand is full and noisy and

we’re playing well. You can’t

beat it, it’s better than any

atmosphere in Super League.”

Newman himself has had his

injury frustrations this year

but he says he is feeling good

at a crucial part of the season.

He has praised the club’s

medical and performance staff

for making sure that the group

are only getting stronger as

the season progresses. He

added, “The body is feeling

good. I was feeling a little

battered and bruised after

the Catalans game, it was a

long trip to Catalans. Going

there and back in a day takes

a bit out of you but we were

back in training this week and

looking forward to another

Super League game.

“There’s a lot of fixtures to be

crammed in this month and

we’re lucky that we’ve got

smart people and a smart

coach, who knows what

matters is the game on a

weekly basis,” added Newman.

CLASSIC

COMEBACKS

After last week’s epic fightback at Catalans, we thought we would

look back to see how it ranks alongside other great Super League

comebacks for the Rhinos.

offload to release McGuire who

galloped upfield before passing

to Rob Burrow to touch down.

Sinfield added the conversion

to complete the comeback,

Leeds scoring 24 unanswered

second half points to win 24-16.

Hull KR 30

Leeds Rhinos 40

8th February 2015

14 points comeback

As the Rhinos fell 30-16 down

at Craven Park on the opening

day of the 2015 season, not

many could have imagined

that the Treble winning season

was just around the corner.

Hull KR raced to an early

18-4 lead before Kris Welham

intercepted and went 60 metres

to score at the start of the

second half. Josh Mantellato

added the conversion to

give his side a 30-16 lead.

However, Leeds rallied after that

through Danny McGuire, Kallum

Watkins and Zak Hardaker to take

the lead before Brad Singleton

scored the final try of the game.

Wigan Warriors 16

Leeds Rhinos 24

17th February 2006

16 points comeback

Many Rhinos fans at the DW

Stadium in early 2006 would be

on the receiving end of another

long night against the men in

Cherry and White when they

trailed 16-0 at the break.

Joel Tomkins, Wayne Godwin

and Chris Ashton all scored in

the first half and Leeds found

themselves in a tough spot.

Shane Millard scored his first try

for the Rhinos after the break

before Danny McGuire and then

Kevin Sinfield crossed to give

the visitors the lead for the first

time. The win was confirmed

in the last minute when Jamie

Peacock produced a brilliant

London Broncos 18

Leeds Rhinos 50

3rd March 2001

18 points comeback

Dean Lance’s side looked

like they were on their way

to an embarrassing opening

day defeat at The Valley

against London Broncos in

front of the Sky cameras.

The home side crossed for tries

through Jason Hetherington,

Shane Millard and Steele

Retchless and looked in

command at the break. However

the Rhinos cut loose after the

break with a hat trick from

Keith Senior, two apiece for

Karl Pratt and Chev Walker

along with one each for Jamie

Mathiou and Kevin Sinfield.

Leeds Rhinos 30

St Helens 20

12th September 2003

20 points comeback

When the public address system

announced that season tickets

for 2004 were now on sale

with Daryl Powell’s side trailing

20-0 to Saints at Headingley, it

led to cat calls from the fans.

11


SODEXO


A narrow defeat at Odsal the

previous week had seen the

League Leaders title slip away

and now it looked like the season

would begin to fizzle out.

However, a youthful Rhinos

team left Saints shell-shocked

by scoring 24 points in 11

minutes, with Richie Mathers

scoring the vital try. Late on Willie

Poching sealed a remarkable

30-20 win as he crossed in

front of the Western Terrace

to spark scenes of sheer joy.

Wakefield Trinity 30

Leeds Rhinos 32

10th July 2009

14 points comeback

Wakefield looked set for

a famous win at Belle Vue

when they led 30-16 against

Brian McClennan’s side.

The Rhinos looked to have left it

too late when Ali Lauitiiti crossed

with three minutes to. But Rob

Burrow crossed in the next set

and then, with the clock ticking

down, the Rhinos kept the ball

alive, eventually finding Danny

McGuire who slipped but was

able to find Scott Donald with

a wide pass to score out wide

and lead to Wakefield boss John

Kear holding his head in hands

in front of the Sky cameras.

Huddersfield Giants 26

Leeds Rhinos 27

2nd August 2020

20 points comeback

The return of Super League in

late summer 2020 following

the global pandemic lockdown

resulted in a classic game at

an empty Headingley Stadium

between Leeds and Huddersfield.

Leeds rallied from 26-6 down

with 15 minutes to go to send

the match into Golden Point

extra time before skipper

Luke Gale stepped up to hit

the winning drop goal.

The Giants were well in command

for an hour and looked on their

way for a win when Leeds

were reduced to 12 men as

Ash Handley was sin binned.

Tries from Luke Gale, Luke

Briscoe and Alex Mellor came

before Konrad Hurrell went over

for his second try of the game.

That left Martin with a crucial

kick to level the score with 90

seconds to go and he slotted

it over to set up Gale for the

winning score in Golden Point.

Catalans Dragons 32

Leeds Rhinos 36

30th July 2022

24 points comeback

When Matt Prior was shown a

red card with his side trailing

30-6 at the Stade Gilbert

Brutus, few gave the Rhinos

a chance of victory against

the Grand Final runners up

from the previous season.

However, a hat trick of tries from

former Dragon Richie Myler

gave the visitors hope before

Brad Dwyer switched play late

to kick ahead and win the race

to touch down and put his side

within touching distance.

When Sam Tomkins spilled the

ball on his own line it handed

Leeds a chance to level in the

final minute which Rhyse Martin

took with a penalty goal to send

the game into Golden Point extra

time. After one missed drop goal

attempt, Aidan Sezer seized the

initiative and stepped his way

to the try line for the victory.

Leeds Rhinos 38

Hull FC 22

6th June 2008

18 points comeback

Table toppers Leeds

Rhinos overturned a 18-0

deficit at home against

Hull FC back in 2008.

The Rhinos trailed 18-0 midway

through the first half but fought

back with a sensational display

of attacking rugby to

win 38-22 including a

wonderful solo effort

by Scott Donald.

Tries from Willie

Manu, Graeme

Horne and Danny

Tickle put the Airlie

Birds in a commanding position

early on. Tickle then extended the

lead to 20-4 after 46 minutes

before Leeds mounted their

comeback in the second half.

Leeds Rhinos 34

Wakefield Trinity 30

1st May 2010

18 points comeback

The Rhinos recorded an

incredible 34-30 win over

Wakefield at Murrayfield having

trailed 28-10 in the first half at

the Magic Weekend in 2010.

Two tries from Damian Blanch

and one each from Ben

Jeffries, Paul Johnson and

Tevita Leo-Latu gave Trinity

an 18-point advantage.

Leeds fought back after that to

cut the gap before a dramatic

length of the field effort proved

to be the winning try. Peacock

and Senior produced powerful

runs before Webb passed back

inside for Danny Buderus to

spark the celebrations with

a try after 77 minutes.

2017 season

Not technically a comeback

game but certainly a

huge comeback.

League Leaders Castleford

Tigers arrived at Old Trafford

complete with social media

graphics about how they had held

sway against the Rhinos in the

previous eight games including

a 66-10 win at the Mend-A-

Hose Jungle earlier in the year.

However, in Danny McGuire and

Rob Burrow’s final game at the

club, Leeds dominated from start

to finish to claim an eighth Super

League title.

INCREASED

Approaching the 50 days to go beacon, preparations for the World Cup

are ramping up further. A series of breakfasts have been held in host

towns and cities to drum up further business support and, after months of

negotiation, a television deal has been struck in Australia with Foxtel.

“All of our deals, with

every broadcaster, has

been for the whole of

the tournament,” said

RLWC2021 CEO Jon Dutton,

relieved to finally get the

negotiations over the line.

“Across the rest of the world,

sales continue and the

pictures go further and wider

than any other previous

Rugby League World Cup,”

he added, referencing

South America and West

Africa as the next targets.

Foxtel already broadcast

the domestic rights for

Australia’s National Rugby

League. “We know that this

is going to be the most

watched World Cup and it

is very pleasing it will be

broadcast in Australia on

Fox Sports, keeping the

rights within the NRL family

and with a network that

Australian audiences are

comfortable and familiar

with,” Dutton noted.

“This is a great outcome

for International Rugby

League and Australian

fans. Fox League and

Kayo Sports are flying this

season and to now add the

World Cup is something

to bang the drums about,”

said Fox Sports executive

director, Steve Crawley.

Dutton has also confirmed

that the agreement with

the BBC will open up

more avenues than ever

before for the sport.

“We are very confident

there will be more games

on BBC 1 and BBC 2 than

the FIFA World Cup. I expect

somewhere between 35

and 40 games on those

channels and every

second of every minute

live across the other BBC

platforms - it will be a very

significant moment for us.”

The tournament organisers

have also announced

the appointment of

Sportsbeat as their

official editorial partner.

They will create professional

written content for

RLWC2021’s digital

platforms as well as for

syndication across local,

national and international

media outlets, ensuring fans

have access to all the action.

“Our appointment of

Sportsbeat is another way

we are delivering against our

commitment to provide the

best possible experience

for our fans and to make a

real impact on communities,”

claimed Dutton.

“Sportsbeat have

established deep and

trusted relationships with

key press groups which

will allow us to reach

audiences in regional areas

where we have matches.

“They are leaders in their

field and have significant

experience of covering

large scale sports events.

Their creative energy will

really help the tournament

engage with fans, and

their values and approach

to diversity align closely

with our own, making them

a fantastic partner.”

James Toney, managing

editor at Sportsbeat,

confirmed: “We’re excited

to be working with Rugby

League World Cup 2021 to

tell the story of this groundbreaking

tournament, with a

commitment to provide indepth

coverage from every

match to the world’s media.”

Dutton reckons that the

tournament has benefitted

in the 12-month delay

to the original date.

“We have significantly

surpassed any sponsorship

revenue achieved for any

previous World Cup and we

continue with our sales.

“We are confident we

will attract at least one

other partner, although

we do now have limited

inventory left to sell.”

As for ticket sales, Dutton

re-emphasised that the

women’s and wheelchair

tournaments are set to

break records, together

with the highest ever

attendance for an opening

World Cup game, but that

there will be no cheap,

late offers and he expects

there to be a late walk up.

“Eighty per cent of tickets

are priced £50. Prices

start at £10 and £2.21

for under 16s. We said

from the start we’d have

a no-discount policy and

that remains unchanged.

London is currently the

top buying postcode.

“Some 200,000 people are

still expected to purchase

and almost two-thirds of the

ones who have said they

will, will buy in the August

to November window.

When the tournament

was postponed, almost 20

per cent of ticket buyers

demanded refunds.”

Dutton further noted:

“Eight wheelchair games in

Sheffield are now sold out.

In the men’s tournament,

England and Samoa in

Newcastle is critical to our

success, and that we sell out

that game on the opening

day along with the one in the

evening (between Australia

and Fiji at Headingley) - and

we are close to doing that.

“We have kept back almost

three-quarters of our

advertising budget for

the last six weeks leading

into the tournament.”

REVISITED

MARCH

Four years after their rainsoaked

Wembley meeting,

which turned out to be one

of the most iconic games in

the sport’s history, Leeds

and Wakefield met again

in the Challenge Cup, this

time in the quarter final. It

was the first Sunday game

to be played at Headingley,

the club still resistant to the

move, and was rewarded

with a 21,127 crowd, easily

the best of the season and

biggest for six years. It was

only the sixth time the sides

had met in the competition

post-War, including a

two-legged tie in 1952-

53, Leeds victorious on all

the previous occasions.

The Loiners had won

impressively at Belle Vue

three weeks before but this

was a much tighter contest,

as expected. The forwards

dominated, Wakefield with

the bigger pack further

boosted when Bill Ramsey

was sent off for a foul on

David Topliss. Both sides

were restricted to a sole try,

Alan Hardisty on the mark

for Leeds, the difference

being Terry Clawson’s

goal kicking, landing three

shots, added to a John

Holmes drop goal, the hosts

emerging 11-5 winners. The

draw saw Leeds face Halifax

in the semis, as they had

in the John Player Trophy,

this time at Bradford. The

scheduled league game

John Atkinson,

Keith Hepworth,

and Bill Ramsey

at Fartown the following

week was postponed due

to Great Britain call ups

for the return fixture with

France, at Odsal, leading

to worries of congestion

at the back end of the

campaign which meant

playing at least two games

a week. Unfortunately,

a hamstring injury again

ruled out Syd Hynes from

captaining his country,

Clive Sullivan continuing in

the role and, surprisingly,

John Atkinson was dropped

for team mate Alan Smith,

although a knee injury saw

that selection reversed.

Atkinson scored a try in a

convincing 45-10 triumph,

Holmes also posting a try

to go with six goals. In the

first of a necessary series

of rearrangements, the

Tuesday after, Castleford

were visitors to Headingley

in the fixture that should

have been played when

the Trinity cup tie took

precedence. Despite going

through a transitional period

after the break up of their

cup winning sides of 1969

and ’70, including the loss

of Malcolm Reilly to Manly,

Castleford – coached by

ex-Loiner Harry Poole, a

key component in the Roy

Francis revolution - arrived

in eighth spot and were

desperately unlucky to

go away with a one-point

defeat, 15-14. The difference

was former Glassblower

Keith Hepworth, who

claimed two tries and

expertly marshalled the

necessary rear guard action

to hold on to the points.

Barry Parker came in on the

wing and Chris Sanderson

25


BETFRED

SUPER LEAGUE


was on the bench, Holmes

backing up from his GB

heroics scoring the other

try, Clawson with three

goals. The visitors included

Keith Worsley at centre, who

had won a championship

medal with Leeds ‘A’ the

year before when on trial

but chose to sign ‘down

t’Lane.’ Cramming in five

more matches in the month,

Leeds racked up 176 points

to put them on the verge

of regaining the League

Leaders’ trophy, conceding

just 25 in a blistering run of

form. With David Barham

on the bench, the Loiners

ran in nine tries at home to

Keighley, Smith and John

Langley each claiming a

brace, Hepworth, Holmes

– replacing David Hick at

full back – Phil Cookson,

Les Dyl and Atkinson also

crossing, Clawson with a try

and seven goals in a onesided

contest that ended

44-3. On the Tuesday

after, in another rearranged

fixture, revenge was gained

for October’s defeat at

Hull KR when the Robins

were silenced 27-2. Tony

Fisher, who had handed in a

transfer request after being

dropped in favour of David

Ward, earned a recall, with

Sanderson gaining another

wing start in place of the

injured Smith. Atkinson

crossed early to set the

tone, Leeds running in

four more tries from Dyl,

Graham Eccles, Holmes

and Cookson, Clawson with

six successful attempts at

goal. The Saturday following,

lowly Workington – who

were to finish 24th out of

thirty teams in the division

- were the next visitors to

Headingley, a month after

Leeds had been convincing

winners at Derwent Park.

Further bad news for the

Cumbrians was that Bob

Alan Hardisty

Haigh was back after his

badly broken arm playing

for Great Britain against

the Kiwi tourists. It took

the returning back rower

barely five minutes to get

back in the try scoring

groove, crossing for the first

of his two in a 13-try rout

that set a new record at

home against Town. In the

biggest win of the campaign,

surpassing the Keighley

hammering, both wingers,

Smith and Atkinson claimed

hat tricks, halves Hardisty

and Hepworth crossed

as did Holmes and Dyl,

meaning only John Langley

did not score among the

backs, Phil Cookson the

only other forward to get

over the whitewash in a

glittering display that at

times resembled a training

run. Clawson landed five

goals, Holmes four and

Hardisty a drop goal in a

59-5 shellacking. There was

even time for Fisher and his

opposite number to be sent

off. In the run up to an early

Easter, a further fixture was

slotted in on a Wednesday

night at Huddersfield,

another side struggling

and with less than 3,000

in attendance. Hick came

back as custodian, with

Holmes – who scored two

tries – moving back into

the centres. Atkinson, with

a double, and Smith were

again on the score sheet

as Leeds continued to find

their wingers – a criticism

that had been levelled at

them earlier in the season

– Ramsey adding to the try

tally and Clawson on target

five times in a comfortable

28-6 triumph. Good Friday

saw the visit of neighbours

Bramley, and a typically

robust derby. With another

hat trick, Atkinson took his

tally to ten touchdowns in

five games, Sanderson – in

for Hardisty in his favoured

half back berth – posting

for his first try in the

colours. His midfield partner,

Hepworth, again ran the

show along with Ray Batten,

the pair carving out an 18-9

success, a 17th league win

in succession, Clawson with

three goals. It put Leeds on

the verge of finishing top in

the regular season.

TODAY’S OPPOSITION

SALFORD

RED DEVILS

PROSPECTS

A magnificent eight try

performance that blew away

dominant league leaders St

Helens at the AJ Bell Stadium

last Sunday was the Red Devils

fourth win in five games, moving

them up to sixth and in a prime

position in the race for the play

off spots. Three tries in seven

minutes in the first half set the

tone of the 44-12 triumph but

equally as outstanding as the

score line was the effervescent

manner of their play, former

Loiner Kallum Watkins profiting

with two tries, as did ex-Wigan

winger Joe Burgess who his

head coach claimed afterwards

was in England form. “I couldn’t

be prouder,” said Paul Rowley

of the display. “It’s an amazing

effort, we have been building

towards that. Things like that

are not a fluke, it’s a result

of hard work. The character

of the group has never been

questioned, we only had 18 (fit)

players.” The former England

hooker added: “We are quite

difficult to stop when we get

on a roll and we scored some

fantastic tries.” Their previous

win in Toulouse came at further

cost given their absentees,

with Scotland international

Danny Addy ruled out for

the remainder of the season

although HIA absentee, full

back Ryan Brierley, is expected

to return this week.


AT THE HELM

The player who appeared on

the billboards to advertise the

advent of Super League, Paul

Rowley was at Halifax at the

time. He subsequently moved

to Huddersfield, bookending

his playing career – which

included four England caps,

three of them in the 2000

World Cup – with stints at

home town club Leigh. He

began his coaching career

with the Leythers, taking them

to consecutive Championship

titles in 2014 and ’15. In

2017 he was appointed head

coach of Toronto, losing

out to London in the Million

Pound Game in Canada a year

later. He arrived at Salford in

2019 initially as a coaching

consultant, moving into a new

position as the club’s first

head of rugby development,

talent and pathways, which

included playing a pivotal role

in securing their partnership

with Wales Rugby League. The

Red Devils have subsequently

set up links with Copperheads

in the USA and Ghana RL. This

pre-season he was elevated to

the head coach role, replacing

Richard Marshall, stating: “I

want to lift standards at the

club throughout and create

a different environment –

one that walks a little bit

taller. I want our players to

understand what being a

Salford player is about, both on

and off the pitch.” It has been

reported that his assistant,

former Castleford star Danny

Orr, is set to leave the club at

the end of the season.

BIG NAME SIGNING

Scorer of a try of the

season contender last

week, when the ball rippled

the length of the field

and was finished off by

Brodie Croft from half

way, the capture of the

ex-Melbourne and Brisbane

half was a massive coup for

the Red Devils. The former

Australian Schoolboy

international was seen by

the Storm as the natural

successor to Cooper Cronk

before moving on to the

Broncos, scoring 14 tries

in 65 NRL games in all. The

recently turned 25-yearold

played in Melbourne’s

2018 Grand Final defeat

to the Sydney Roosters

and that year’s World Club

Challenge win over Leeds,

scoring a 24th minute try,

and follows in the footsteps

of Jackson Hastings –

who was instrumental in

taking the Red Devils to

the Grand Final in 2019

- Daniel Holdsworth and

Michael Dobson as pivots

swapping the NRL for the

AJ Bell. Croft, who has

been at his best taking

on the defensive line, said

on his arrival: “I still had

a year left to run on my

contract at Brisbane and

things were kind of floating

around a bit. I just wanted

a bit more clarity and what

Salford had to offer here,

the direction they want to

go with the club, followed

the way I want to go. They

put a lot of confidence in

me, and I felt career-wise

it was a good move for me

at this stage. I’m still young

and I feel I’ve got a lot to

learn, but I feel like I’ve got

a lot to give as well and

that gives me confidence,

having that accountability

with a bit more leadership.”

NEXT CAB OFF THE RANK

Rhinos’ heritage number

1429 from when he made his

debut at Leigh in February

2017, Jack Ormondroyd,

the son of ex-Bradford City

striker Ian, is establishing

himself in the Red Devils

front row, starting there

last week against Saints

and equipping himself

particularly impressively.

Signed from Featherstone

and also having played

at York, he extended his

contract late last year,

Salford director of rugby

and operations Ian Blease

saying: “I’m really pleased

to have Jack with us for

another two years, I think his

game has really improved

and he’s been one of our

most consistent players.

I’m looking forward to

working with Jack more

and watching him progress

further into an even more

reliable and talented member

of the pack.” Bradford-born

Ormondroyd, who played

15 times in blue and amber,

noted: “We’ve got a good

group of lads and I’ve

managed to get quite a few

games under my belt which

I’m happy about.” He scored

two tries in an astonishing

comeback win at Warrington

recently. “It’s rare for me

to get one, let alone two,”

he quipped. “I wasn’t too

fussed about that, more the

quality of the performance,

we showed great character

especially after having had a

man sent off and being 24-8

down.” He has also played

in Australia for Thirlmere

Roosters in the Group 6 NSW

Country League.

WATCH OUT FOR...

A virtuoso display by Samoan

centre Tim Lafai, which must

have left Konrad Hurrell

suffering nightmares, was

the highlight of Salford’s

astonishing win over Saints

last Sunday. He made 193

metres from 19 carries and

had a hand in three tries in

an imperious performance

that won him the man of the

match award at the ground.

Salford brought him out of

retirement on an initial one

year deal after 10 seasons and

170 appearances in the NRL

having played for Canterbury

Bulldogs on two occasions and

St. George Illawara Dragons.

He has represented Samoa

at two World Cups, in 2013

and ’17 and scored three tries

and seven goals for them in

13 appearances in total. Chief

beneficiary last week was

winger Joe Burgess who took

his try tally to 13 in 15 games.

He said: “I’ve not enjoyed

rugby this much in years and

we’re getting a really good

combination at the minute.

I think that’s the best game

he’s played this year with

some of the tough carries

he did and also putting it on

a plate for me, which I really

appreciate.” In June, the Red

Devils took up the option

to extend the 31-year-old’s

contract for a further year

such has been his form. Paul

Rowley said: “We’re really

pleased to have Tim extend

his stay at the club. Myself,

the staff and all the players

really appreciate him as both

a player and a person. He’s a

fantastic lad who has really

bought into the culture we are

growing at the club. I’m sure

he will play a big part in the

club’s growth and progression

moving forward.” He currently

has the top offloads in the

competition with 37.

THIS

DAY...

AUGUST

On this day in years gone by, Leeds Rhinos sides have progressed through to

the Challenge Cup Final in consecutive seasons, kicked off the Super 8s with

victory at Headingley and run 14 tries passed Leigh Centurions

2005

Leigh Centurions 0

Leeds Rhinos 74

In 2005, Ashley Gibson made

a dream debut as he scored

22 points in a 74-0 win over

Leigh Centurions at Hilton Park.

The youngster crossed for a

hat trick as well as kicking five

goals as the Champions ran in

14 unanswered tries to confirm

Leigh’s relegation from Super

League after just one season in

the top flight. Mark Calderwood,

Danny McGuire and Ryan Bailey

also touched down twice each

for the visitors, who continued

a four match winning streak.

2010

Leeds Rhinos 32

St Helens 28

Leeds and St Helens met in

a classic Challenge Cup semi

final clash on this day, with

the Rhinos aiming to reach

their first Cup final since 2005.

Saints seemed to be in control

when they led 18-8 at the

break, thanks to three quick

tries from Paul Wellens, Keiron

Cunningham and Francis Meli, but

after Matt Gidley and Ryan Hall

had exchanged scores, Leeds

regained the lead through Brent

Webb and Danny McGuire. James

Graham put Saints ahead again

but McGuire’s late try sealed

Leeds’ place at Wembley, where

they would play Warrington.

2011

Leeds Rhinos 10

Castleford Tigers 8

A year later, another Challenge

Cup semi final saw the Rhinos

take on local rivals Castleford

Tigers at Doncaster’s Keepmoat

Stadium. The Tigers, led by

Rangi Chase, overturned Leeds

2-0 lead at half time as the

half back scored a huge solo

try to give Castleford hope.

Kirk Dixon added two penalty

goals to extend the black and

amber’s lead further but Kallum

Watkins’ late converted try

took the game to extra time.

In an intense atmosphere,

Ryan McGoldrick committed a

high tackle on Danny McGuire

only two minutes into the first

period of golden point, and

Sinfield stepped up to convert

the penalty goal to book Leeds

place in the Cup Final for a

second consecutive year.

2015

Leeds Rhinos 49

Warrington Wolves 10

In 2015, a man of the match

performance from Zak Hardaker

helped Leeds kick off the Super

8s with a convincing win over

Warrington Wolves at Headingley.

Kevin Penny raced away for

the first of two tries to put the

visitors ahead, but from there

on in, it was all Leeds as Brian

McDermott’s side ran riot. Kallum

Watkins, Tom Briscoe, Hardaker

and Danny McGuire helped Leeds

take a 24-6 lead into the break,

before Hardaker’s stunning

second try got the South Stand

rocking. Efforts from Joel Moon,

Rob Burrow and Carl Ablett, plus

17 points from Kevin Sinfield,

underlined Leeds’ dominance

as the Rhinos recorded a 49-10

victory on the full time whistle.

THEY

PLAYED

FOR BOTH...

ROB LUI (HERITAGE NUMBER: 1451)

Half back Rob Lui moved to the UK in 2016 to sign for Salford after

seven years in the NRL. Over three years, he scored 26 tries in 87 Super

League appearances and also helped the club survive relegation to the

Championship in his first year. Midway through the 2019 season, he was

part of a swap deal that saw the half back arrive at Headingley, while Tui

Lolohea went in the opposite direction. He made a winning start against

Catalans at Headingley and a year later, he was a part of Richard Agar’s side

that lifted the Challenge Cup against his former side Salford at Wembley.

He capped off his Leeds career with five tries in eleven appearances in

2021, as well as a Super League semi final appearance versus St Helens.

WELLER HAURAKI (HERITAGE NUMBER: 1388)

Forward Weller Hauraki joined the Super League competition in 2010, after

being released by Parramatta Eels to sign for Crusaders. For the 2011 season,

Brian McDermott brought the New Zealand Maori international to Leeds,

where he made a try scoring debut against Hull FC in round two. He finished

the season with four tries and 27 appearances, including starting at loose

forward in the 2011 Cup Final defeat to Wigan, but only went on to make a

further 12 appearances in 2012. Following two years at Castleford, he was

recruited by Ian Watson for Salford’s 2015 squad and became part of the

club’s captaincy group, making 57 Super League appearances over four years.

ANDREW DUNEMANN (HERITAGE NUMBER: 1340)

Australian Andrew Dunemann signed for the Rhinos after three years with

Halifax. He debuted for Leeds against Whitehaven in the Challenge Cup

at the start of the 2003 season and a week later, scored against Widnes

Vikings on his home debut. He missed out on Tony Smith’s Grand Final squad

in 2004 but was included in both the Challenge Cup and Grand Final teams

in 2005; Leeds losing to Bradford and Hull FC. He left the club to return to

Australia for family reasons at the end of the season but returned in January

to sign for Salford on a 12 month contract. In his sole year at the club, he

scored once in 25 appearances to help the club finished fifth in the table.

DANNY WILLIAMS (HERITAGE NUMBER: 1356)

Winger Danny Williams came through the Rhinos’ Academy system from

community club Whinmoor Warriors. He played at Leeds for two years,

debuting against St Helens in 2006 with a try. His try scoring antics continued

throughout his first season as he finished the year with 12 tries in 15 games,

including a hat trick against Harlequins in the Cup. Loan spells at Castleford

in 2007 and Hull FC at the start of 2008 followed but he only managed

five more appearances in the blue and amber before swapping codes to

join Rugby Union side Newcastle Falcons. Salford brought him back to the

13-player code in 2011 and his try scoring prowess saw the winger touch

down 31 times in 54 appearances over four seasons in the Red Devils jersey.

FOUNDATION

Community Clubs Come Together

For 11th Ambassador Festival

Community Clubs from across Leeds and

the local region came together for the 11th

Annual Dick Gibson Club Ambassadors Festival

of Rugby League at the Bartercard Leeds

Rhinos training complex a fortnight ago.

In the first of three Ambassador Festivals taking

place this year, a total of 28 teams from 15 of Leeds

Rhinos Foundation’s Ambassador Clubs took part in

the small-sided games, which were sponsored once

again by Charlie Brett’s Fish & Chips Restaurant.

Teams in the Junior Boys Festival were Batley

Boys, Birstall Victoria, Bramley RL, Dewsbury Celtic,

Dewsbury Moor, Guiseley Rangers, Hunslet Club

Parkside, Hunslet Warriors, Keighley Albion, Methley

Warriors, Milford ARLFC, Oulton Raiders, Shaw

Cross Sharks, Stanley Rangers and Stanningley.

Long running sponsors Naturally Best also

continued their support for the festival by

generously offering to help feed all the junior

players and coaches free of charge.

Despite the downpours, there was some great

games played and fantastic skills on show

from all the teams, as more than 350 junior

players proudly represented their clubs.

Played on the training pitches used by the

Leeds Rhinos first teams in Kirkstall, the festival

saw full-contact Rugby League tournaments

running throughout the day, starting in the

morning with the Under-10s to Under-12s

Boys and then moving onto the Under-13s and

Under-14s Boys matches in the afternoon.

Leeds Rhinos first-team stars Blake Austin,

Zane Tetevano and Sam Walters came along

to hand out the medals and trophies to

the youngsters, many of whom were huge

Rhinos supporters and excited to meet their

Super League idols. The top placed finishers

of each age group were also presented with

a special shield to mark their efforts.

The Festival was organised and managed

by Community Clubs Development Officers

Sam Horner and Helen Schofield.

Horner commented: “It was a hugely successful

start to our biggest ever programme of Club

Ambassador Festivals of Rugby League this

summer. We had a brilliant turnout given the short

notice of this year’s Festival and it was great

to see youngsters from as young as nine right

up to the age of 14 taking part in the games.

“This event really did show the power of

community clubs in the city and hopefully it was

an inspiring experience for all the children to play

at the training ground of Leeds Rhinos and meet

some of their players who had kindly given up

their time to do the presentations. A big thanks to

all the community clubs who joined us, as well as

the Gibson family for their continued support of

this event, which creates a lasting impact on the

lives of hundreds of young players in our region.”

The Ambassador scheme builds on engaging

the community clubs of Leeds and District

and empowering them to create community

cohesion for the betterment of Rugby League.

WOMEN

Academy coach

Bullough pleased

with how squad

progressing in 2022

Leeds Rhinos Academy head

coach Matty Bullough said

after the setbacks of Covid

for community clubs and the

Academy he has been delighted

with how the players have

come back and responded and

says the squad is in a healthy

position as they approach

the end of the season.

Speaking ahead of their second

game of the season this week

against Castleford, Bullough

said: “It’s been a long season so

far and obviously on the back

of Covid we didn’t get to train

for a year and a half so they

came back in February and we

have had one game this season

already but we have been

working pretty much week in

week out up until this point.

“We have a great community

set up in Leeds so they develop

the players really well so when

they come to us they are highly

skilled and motivated. For us

it’s just about polishing them

here and getting them ready

to develop in our environment

and hopefully make that step

up to the Women’s team.

“The games we play are just a

bonus and obviously everyone

on the squad wants to play

games, but it’s more about

the development in the elite

environment here. They are

training well with their clubs so

it’s about fine tuning them and

more to do with the strength

and conditioning side and

getting them moving well.

stronger and more prepared.”

Bullough says having a

clear pathway in place at

the Rhinos with many first

team players having come

through the Academy is

hugely inspiring to his squad.

“It is motivating for the girls to

see so many players in the first

team who have come through

the Academy,” he said. “A lot

of the girls in the Academy will

have looked up to those players

when they were 10 and 11

years-old and they know who

they are and have seen how

they have progressed through

and it’s what they aspire to

do. It definitely inspires them,

especially when you see them

week in week out and playing

on Sky Sports now and many

of them representing England,

it’s a great push for these girls.”

Not only do the young players

have the Women’s team to look

up to as role models but this year

has already been a big year in

pushing women’s sport onwards

and Bullough is hoping the

success of the Lionesses and the

Commonwealth Games’ female

athletes, along with the upcoming

World Cup, will mean more young

girls will look to take part in sport.

“On the back on the Lionesses’

victory and the increased

profile I am hoping that it

helps develop rugby," added

Bullough. "The Women's World

Cup will be a great platform to

inspire more young girls to get

involved in sport and a great

opportunity in our country to

really promote the game.”

ACADEMY UPDATE

Top try scorer

Tchamambe says

confidence is

key after stellar

first season

As the Under-18s regular

season nears its climax,

Chev Walker’s Leeds Rhinos

side are in a strong position

to enter the post season

Play Offs for the first time

since 2019. Games against

Newcastle Thunder and

Warrington Wolves remain

for the young Rhinos this

month and one player

who is aiming high is

winger Neil Tchamambe.

The former Leeds Irish Clovers

player is having a remarkable first

year in the club’s Academy and

has eleven tries to show for it,

four of which came in a man of

the match performance against

Wakefield Trinity earlier this year.

Speaking about the season so

far, Tchamambe reflected on

how much he has developed,

saying: “It was a slow start to

the season against Warrington. I

wasn’t as good in those games

but then as the games went

on, I feel like I’ve got better. I

got more tries, more carries in

and I’ve felt more confident.

“It’s a lot to do with confidence.

Coming into the Academy, there’s

all sorts of competition and you

need to be as confident as you

can in your own abilities to do

what you can on the field for the

team. Having a good connection

between me and Jack Smith on

the edge has helped as well. I’ve

played with him since the start

of the season, so we flow pretty

well and connect well in game.”

Tchamambe has been taking

a lot from head coach Walker,

who came through the club’s

development pathway to go on

to play in Tchamambe’s position

of wing/centre at both domestic

and international level. “Chev’s

a good coach,” said the winger.

“He’s played in a similar position

so he’s easy to take skill advice

from and adapt it to my own

game. Specifically this year,

he’s helped my running, coming

in off the edge and backline

carries. He’s told me to be more

confident in backline carries

and passing the ball as well.”

The young winger hasn’t followed

the usual path into the sport,

having been identified while

playing at school by Leeds Rhinos

Foundation, but nevertheless, he

was given a major boost in May

this year when he was offered his

first professional contract. “It’s

been a pretty incredible journey,”

he said. “I wasn’t experienced

coming into Rugby League but

then playing with my friends

and playing in the Scholarship

and Academy has made it an

incredible journey. To get the

opportunity play a few games

with the Reserves with the first

team players and against more

experienced players can only

benefit me in the future too.”

ENGLAND

LAUNCH NEW

LOOK KIT FOR

WORLD CUP

England Rugby League last week launched a new playing kit

to be worn by all three teams – Men, Women and Wheelchair

– at this year’s Rugby League World Cup (RLWC) and steps

up the countdown to the tournament by confirming that

the Men’s team will finalise preparations when they play

Fiji at Salford’s AJ Bell Stadium on Friday October 7.

Designed in partnership with

official England kit provider

OXEN, the kit is a novel and

exciting departure from the

familiar all-white outfits worn in

previous tournaments. England’s

new kit also incorporates

a striking chevron design,

synonymous with international

Rugby League, the ‘We are

Ready’ motif, and a ribbingstyled

collar and cuff effect

befitting of an international

shirt. The shirt is available in

store at Headingley now.

The redesign follows the

postponement of RLWC2021

and the announcement of

a major new shirt sponsor,

Betfred. The playing kits will also

feature another new sponsor,

REIGN Total Body Fuel.

Lee Jenkinson, OXEN CEO,

adds: “World Cups don’t come

around very often, so it’s been an

honour and a privilege to develop

the shirt design with the RFL

and Rugby League supporters

from a wide number of clubs.

A common theme of all our

discussions was a desire to take

things in a new direction, while

also recognising the traditions

of international Rugby League.

"We are delighted with the final

product and look forward to

seeing it being worn proudly by

all three England sides at this

year’s Rugby League World Cup.”

Any fans who bought last year’s

England shirt at full price will be

able to buy the new shirt at 50%

off and they will receive an email

from Elite Pro Sports with details

on how to redeem the offer.

In addition, for a limited period,

all other fans buying the new

shirt but not redeeming the 50%

off offer will also receive a free

England RL Community Jersey,

which will be worn by all three

England teams for Captain’s

Runs during RLWC2021. The

jersey, which usually retails at

£34.99, features the names of

all professional and community

Rugby League teams in England.

RLWC2021 gets underway at

Newcastle’s St James’ Park

on Saturday October 15 when

England play Samoa in the first

match of the Men’s competition.

England Women play their first

game at Headingley Stadium,

Leeds, against the RLWC

debutants Brazil on Tuesday

November 1, while England

Wheelchair open their campaign

against Australia at the Copper

Box Arena in London’s Olympic

Park on Thursday November 3.

Tickets for England v Fiji, when

the Men’s team will wear the

new kit for the first time, are

on sale now at eticketing.

co.uk/rugbyleague with the

majority priced at only £15

Adults and £5 U16s. It will be

a crucial run-out for England

eight days ahead of their World

Cup opener against Samoa.
