Official Report / Commentary

Tom Briscoe scored two tries to help Leeds Rhinos come from behind and climb back up to third in the Betfred Super League table with an 18-16 victory at Wakefield Trinity.

The home side went in front when Mason Caton-Brown ran 80 metres for his fifth try in three games before Kyle Wood darted over, Liam Finn converting once.

Ben Jones-Bishop then spilt a towering Joel Moon bomb and from the resulting scrum Stevie Ward twisted his way over.

Leeds were quickly in again as Kallum Watkins put Briscoe over, although Liam Sutcliffe failed with both conversion attempts.

Briscoe’s second try gave the Rhinos the lead for the first time, Sutcliffe again missing the touchline goal.

A mistake in the Trinity defence, Jones-Bishop and Wood colliding after going for a Danny McGuire bomb, enabled Moon to pounce.

Jones-Bishop’s 15th try of the season and Finn’s conversion cut the gap to two points but Leeds clung on to complete a double over their neighbours, whose six-game winning run came to an end.

Wakefield coach Chris Chester: “We got beaten by the better side. We were just off with the ball and made far too many individual errors.

"I was really positive with the guys at full-time as we are not far off and were up against a very good side.”

Leeds coach Brian McDermott: “Defence got us the game although I felt we were very challenging in offence too before losing possession.

"You have to give them credit for that as it wasn’t necessarily that we were loose with our skill – they put their bodies in front and defended a couple of big plays from us.

"So I’m not going to be too critical about our offence but I felt defence was the key.”
