Rhinos stay in top-four hunt: Leeds overcame the absence of Kevin Sinfield to maintain their challenge for top spot in the First utility Super League with a hard-fought success that brought Salford's three-match winning run under former Leeds captain Iestyn Harris to an end. The Rhinos' 22-18 victory keeps them just two points behind leaders St Helens but deals a major blow to the play-off hopes of the Red Devils, who are now four points behind eighth-placed Widnes with five matches left. In addition to the suspended Sinfield, Leeds were also without forwards Brett Delaney, Ryan Bailey and Mitch Achurch through injury but their youthful bench players showed they were up to the task as they held off a strong challenge from their in-form hosts, who lost star full-back Kevin Locke with a back injury before half-time. The absence of Sinfield paved the way for Leeds to turn back the clock by reuniting Danny McGuire and Rob Burrow in the halves and it was the scurrying Burrow who produced the first break of the match. That came to nothing, however, and it was Salford who opened the scoring on 12 minutes when centre Junior Sa'u beat Ryan Hall to the ball after Locke had threaded it through the visitors defence to claim his 11th try of the season. Josh Griffin's conversion made it 6-0 but Leeds struck a purple patch to go 12-6 ahead. Full-back Zak Hardaker dived full length to ground the ball from McGuire's stabbed kick before centre Kallum Watkins finished off a spectacular 60-metre move started by hooker Paul Aiton and continued by winger Tom Briscoe. Hardaker added both goals but the Red Devils finished the first half the stronger side, despite losing Locke five minutes before the break. Scrum-half Theo Fages had a try disallowed for a forward pass but he was not denied shortly afterwards after winning the chase to Rangi Chase's kick to the line and Griffin tied the scores with his second conversion. There was little to choose between the sides but another momentum shift early in the second half saw Leeds open up a 10-point advantage. Second rower Carl Ablett twisted and turned out of a three-man tackle to score one of his trademark opportunist tries and Stevie Ward scythed through the Salford defence for another after a break by fellow substitute Liam Sutcliffe had set up field position. Salford, too, enjoyed significant impact from the bench, with Niall Evalds slotting nicely into Locke's position and forward Jordan Walne getting his side back in the game by taking Chase's drop-off pass to score his first try of the season. Griffin's third goal meant there was just four points in it and it stayed that way after Hardaker missed with a 40-metre penalty kick at goal. That was the signal for the Red Devils to launch one last effort and Sa'u went on a rampaging run for the line only to lose the ball in Hardaker's tackle. Source:

St Helens remain top of the First Utility Super League table but their 44-22 victory over Widnes Vikings was achieved at some cost with scrum-half Luke Walsh carried off on a stretcher with a nasty lower leg injury. Initially it looked like it was going to be a straight forward win with Saints leading 32-0 early on in the second half thanks to tries from Mark Flanagan, Jordan Turner along with Tommy Makinson and Mose Masoe who added two apiece. But Widnes hit back with three touchdowns in five minutes to make it a contest, before Makinson completed his hat-trick and Willie Manu got in on the scoring, with Rhys Hanbury getting a late consolation try for the visitors. Saints opened the score after seven minutes when Walsh sent Flanagan in, with Mark Percival adding the extras. The hosts were soon back on the scoresheet when Makinson gathered Flanagan's kick wide to touch down. Further pressure told on 28 minutes when Masoe proved unstoppable from close range. He had further to run for the next one, leaving Vikings fullback Hanbury with no chance as he steamrollered his way to a second try. Percival goaled again to make it 22-0. Vikings lost back row MacGraff Leuluai to the sin-bin after numerous indiscretions just before the interval. After the break Masoe's offload allowed Turner to put Makinson in to cross under the posts. Makinson then returned the compliment to his centre with another neatly taken try three minutes later to leave the Vikings reeling. But the visitors managed to enjoy a blistering five-minute spell after getting themselves on the scoresheet for the first time on 50 minutes when they moved the ball well to create space for Cameron Phelps to power over on the left. Virtually from the restart the Vikings were in again with a long range movement that was polished off by Phelps as he completed a quick-fire double. A long delay followed after scrum half Walsh was carried off on a stretcher with his legs strapped together. But after that enforced break, it was againWidnesgoing the length of the field with Stefan Marsh racing 80 metres, rounding Paul Wellens to go under the sticks. Danny Tickle slotted the goal and the score was pegged back to 32-16. After that Saints managed to stem the flow and showed plenty of urgency when they countered, with James Roby helping the forwards to march the ball downfield. And from a repeat set, after Hep Cahill's fingers had nudged Gary Wheeler's high kick, Saints moved the ball well with Makinson going in at the corner for his third. Four minutes later theWidnesbackline was breached again, with Manu pouncing on an attempted clearance to go over the line. Hanbury had the last word when his momentum took him over in the dying stages, with Tickle tagging on the goal, but the result was a formality for some time before that. Source:

Robinson: Refs were looking out for us A clearly agitated Roosters coach Trent Robinson has slammed the performance of referees Gavin Badger and Grant Atkins following the Tricolours’ shock 16-12 loss to Newcastle on Friday night. In a game full of controversies, with the Roosters disallowed three tries in the first half and enforcer Jared Waerea-Hargreaves sent to the sin-bin for swearing at the referee, coach Robinson was livid following fulltime. "The video referee decision where it went through the legs of James Maloney, it was given a try and then it wasn't a try. As soon as Jared [Waerea-Hargreaves] gets sent for 10, you could just feel [the decisions turning against us]," Robinson told reporters after the game. "They were looking at stuff from us to award penalties and even on the last one when Mason hits the deck, the referee calls 'play the ball' and then he gets up and the referee goes quiet and allows him to play on. Those things irk you. "It was a poor performance from the referees. You could tell that they were scrutinising, they were searching for Jared there right from the start and you're not allowed to swear at the ref but if you say 'that's an effen forward pass' and that's sin-binable, we should see it every week. "There has been no explanation [from the referees about their decisions]. There has been nothing all year. Nothing will change." While he didn't pile all the blame on the referees, Robinson admitted that his side were "out-scrapped" and saw that the Knights disappointment of losing their RiseForAlex fixture last weekend definitely had them primed to cause an upset. "We worked hard for it. We both came for an arm-wrestle and we both got stuck into it there. We had enough opportunities. We didn't take the opportunities we had," Robinson said. "They had some fresh guys in there ready to play some footy but it was disappointing from us. Our discipline in the game there, and then just struggling to finish the game off... it was pretty poor." With the Roosters unlucky to be ahead just 6-nil at halftime, Roosters captain Anthony Minichiello admitted that their emotion got the better of them when all was said and done. "We came in at halftime and said to one another to stay patient," Minichiello said. "We missed a few opportunities there but we weren't frustrated with it at halftime but it certainly got the better of us in the second half." By Jack Brady, Staff Writer

Proud Bennett lauds Knights’ tenacity Proud Newcastle mentor Wayne Bennett has labelled Friday night's upset 16-12 win over the Sydney Roosters as the "Knights’ best win of the season", attributing the shock victory to their tenacity which enabled them to the turn the momentum of the game around. With the Knights were lucky to be down just 6-nil at halftime, after the Roosters were disallowed three tries in the first 40 minutes, Bennett was extremely happy and applauded their efforts. "One swallow doesn't make a summer. We needed what we achieved tonight and it was just nice to see them get out there and stick at it," Bennett told reporters following the win. "We had a terrible start but from that point on they fought for the next 20 minutes to get back into the game and then they were in control of the game and they dominated the second half." With the disappointment of losing their RiseForAlex Round fixture against the Titans last weekend obviously still lingering, Bennett apologised for the win being a week late and maintained he would have been just as proud if they had not been victorious, given their turnaround in just five days. "Tonight was for Alex but we also thought we owed the fans because we let them all down [last week] and that was pretty much in everyone's mind all week but we didn't talk about it a lot," Bennett said. In what was a hectic week for the Knights, with Darius Boyd admitted to a mental clinic for treatment for depression as well as Akuila Uate and James McManus being late withdrawals from the side, Bennett credited debutant brothers Sione and Chanel Mata'utia in their first efforts in the NRL. "They were outstanding. All of them. Sione, Chanel and Jake [Mamo] included. They were playing a quality football team tonight. I thought Adam [Clydsdale] was great at hooker and Gags [Dane Gagai] had to finish up playing five-eighth which isn't his position," Bennett said. "We had nine NRL players missing tonight and we lost Jarrod Mullen at halftime as well. I couldn't be more proud of them." While it was a bright night for the Newcastle Knights, a stomach muscle tear ruined Mullen's evening; the injury could see him sit out next weekend's game against the Rabbitohs in Cairns.
