MATCH REPORT


MATCH REPORT : Saints started well, the ball was worked down our left channel and Beth Stott found Jodie Cunningham who crashed over from close range. Stott was unable to convert, 4-0 Saints led. Shortly after Saints forced a goal-line dropout. From the restart Saints moved the ball out right and Zoe Harris slid through a gap to increase our lead. Stott was unable to convert, 8-0 Saints led. Saints’ dream start continued. Amy Hardcastle made a break down the left-hand side before fending off Fran Goldthorp to score under the sticks, a trademark Hardcastle try! Harris converted, 14-0 Saints led. Leeds then replied as Caitlin Beevers burrowed her way over from close range. Courtney Winfield-Hill’s conversion bounced in off the post, 14-6 Leeds trailed. A second Leeds try quickly followed. Jasmine Cudjoe spotted a gap from dummy half and went over to score. Winfield-Hill was unable to convert so we led 14-10 at the break.

Leeds levelled the scores just two minutes into the second half. Goldthorp broke through some Saints tackles before burying under some tacklers to score. Winfield-Hill was unable to convert so the scores were level at 14-14. Saints then re-took the lead just past the hour mark. Chantelle Crowl made a strong carry towards the Leeds line and off the back of it Tara Jones pinched one from dummy half. Harris was unable to convert so we led 18-14. The hosts then had two tries disallowed. Firstly, Eboni Partington slid over in the corner but Saints were denied by the video referee. Then Paige Travis looked to have gone over as the referee awarded a try on-field, but the video referee once again said no so the Saints lead remained just four points. That was to prove costly. Leeds kicked and chased on the last with two minutes to go, they won the race and Saints were unable to tackle Goldthorp as she scored to the right of the sticks. Winfield-Hill converted to win the game for the Rhinos and leave Saints with their second successive defeat as we went down 20-18.
