Match report: Leeds Rhinos 32-4 Salford Red Devils

In a nutshell
There were only two points in it at half-time, but in the second half the Rhinos broke loose and added five tries, some of them spectacular, against a tiring Red Devils side.

How it unfolded
Salford came to Headingley embarrassed by their capitulation to Huddersfield Giants on Good Friday, and in the first half they held the Rhinos and threatened to cause an upset.

The Rhinos’ only first-half try was scored by captain Kevin Sinfield, which he converted himself, and Wigan loanee Logan Tomkins, who was in the starting lineup alongside debutant centre Michael Platt, got a try back for the Red Devils.

But in the second half it was one way traffic, as the Rhinos scored tries from Hardaker, Burrow, Jones-Bishop, Hall and Briscoe, with Sinfield converting the first two and Jones-Bishop adding one goal.

With this victory, and St Helens’ defeat at Widnes, the Rhinos now top the table after ten rounds of Super League.
