Cowboys with a penalty and they’re just 10m out from Leeds’ line. They go close, but good defence keeps them out. They swing the ball right and JT kicks but its played out, and they have another 6 tackles.

This is turning into a real chess match. Leeds may be down on troops but they are showing real heart and determination.

Keith Gallowy almost goes over! Leeds pressuring Cowboys line. But it’s a loose carry from Hall and he turns it ober. That’s poor. Cowboys come away it.

SCORE 4-4

Apologies, we had the sore wrong earlier. It was the Cowboys who crossed first and Leeds now have tied it up for 4-4.

TRY LEEDS!

A great no-look pass from Rob Burrow to Adam Cuthbertson, who tackles the tackle and offloads it back brilliantly for Burrow to score! Game on.

Intercept and Leeds break away 70m! Cowboys scramble in defence. Now Cuthbertson in at 7. And they score!

Until Hardaker loses it. Knock-a-thon at the moment. And now a crucial penalty to the Cows.

Game starting to open up now. Both teams finding much more space with the ball. Cowboys looking dangerous.

Great kick return and they make 40m, almost a full-field try. But it’s a Rhinos ball.

Leeds cough up position. They’re shooting themsevles in the foot far too often.

Mistake there as the Cowboys knock on 20m from their own line. Great field position for the Rhinos.

Now we see what Leeds are made of. They need to respond positively and keep their heads level.

Quality game so far. Cowboys really being tested in attack and defence. And now they have a pressure-relieving penalty. They have the ball 30m from the Leeds line.

Leeds really need to calm down and stop flinging the ball wildly out the back. If they keep the pressure on they’ll score.

Impressive defence from the Cows to keep Leeds out. May have taken some petrol out of the tank though…

Penalty to Leeds. They’re just 10m out. And now another penalty.

Now Brad Singleton is held up over the line. Very close. Now another penalty to Leeds.

That’s three sets for the Cows to defend on their line.

A real arm wrestle so far. Both teams surging forward in defence. But Leeds’ passing is again sloppy.

Nice grubber from JT but Leeds just make it out of their in-goal.

Another mistake fro Leeds, a bit of a scrappy start. They’ll need to do better to avoid a pasting. Ball control is essential.
