Full Report

Match Official: T Alibert

Leeds Rhinos ran up their highest score of the season thanks to a blistering first-half show against Widnes Vikings at the Stobart Stadium.

Widnes skipper Kevin Brown scored a hat-trick of tries, yet his efforts proved in vain as Liam Sutcliffe, Joel Moon and Rob Burrow each notched a brace for the Rhinos.

Leeds, who had lost five of their previous seven games, welcomed back Moon from suspension and Kallum Watkins from injury but were still missing several key players.

Widnes, shorn of Hep Cahill’s services, were hoping to notch their second win in a row following an impressive performance at Bradford Bulls.

They missed an early opportunity to take the lead when opting to run a penalty in front of the posts after Steve Pickersgill had the ball stolen in a two-man tackle.

However, a handling error by Gareth Hock allowed Leeds to go in front after seven minutes with Moon taking Carl Ablett's pass to surge over and Zak Hardaker kicking the conversion.

Hardaker set up the second try after 12 minutes with a wonderful burst from near his own line, sweeping past Cameron Phelps and three other defenders to give Watkins the chance to send the supporting Sutcliffe.

Moon claimed his second try after smart handling by Sutcliffe and Hardaker to stretch the advantage midway through the first half.

Another missed tackle by Phelps on Sutcliffe then allowed Burrow to scamper over with Hardaker adding the conversion.

Leeds were in a dominant mood and capitalised on a Ben Kavanagh handling error for Sutcliffe to notch his second try after 23 minutes.

Widnes had a Brown try disallowed for offside and then the stand-off lost possession prior to Ryan Hall scoring from Paul McShane's kick.

The Rhinos still had time for Hardaker to take a return pass from Sutcliffe to touch down for a seventh try.

Brown did manage to dummy his way over on the stroke of half-time for the Vikings’ first, although Leeds took only two minutes of the second period to go further ahead with Sutcliffe and Watkins combining for Ben Jones-Bishop to score in the corner.

Ablett capitalised on another Widnes error to put Burrow clear for his second try and open up a 48-6 lead.

Hock touched down from Brown's pass on the hour before returning the favour as the latter grabbed his second.

Watkins then scored a comeback try for Leeds to stretch the advantage to 52-18 after 66 minutes.

Brown completed his treble eight minutes from time and Rhys Hanbury went over for the fourth game in a row before Hock added his second.
