For well over a decade the Super League landscape in Yorkshire has been dominated by Leeds Rhinos. Since Bradford’s Grand Final victory of 2005 no Blake Martinez Womens Jersey side from the county has lifted the trophy high at Old Trafford other than Leeds – but next Saturday Jaguars Jersey the Jaguars Authentic Jersey Rhinos’Packers Jersey dominance Packers Authentic Jersey will be put to the ultimate test in the season’s showpiece finale.Six months ago, in the days after their 66-10 defeat at Castleford, the Leeds coach, Brian McDermott attracted criticism aplenty for suggesting his side could still reach – and win – the Grand Final for the eighth time. Then it appeared a ludicrous comment, given how the Rhinos were only months removed from their annus horribilis of 2016 in which they finished ninth and flirted with relegation.
Yet next Saturday McDermott’s prediction is within 80 minutes of becoming a reality – and how fitting it is that Castleford provide the opposition: the runaway Super League leaders and new kids on the block versus the time-honoured Old Trafford specialists. As Grand Final scripts go, they do not get much more appetising.“The job isn’t done and, if we don’t win next week, it will hurt,” McDermott said following a dramatic 18-16 win over Hull. “But this is a huge achievement as the players endured all sorts of ridicule and had all sorts of things wrote about them last year.”For McDermott, there will be an extra sense of pride given the disappointment of 2016 but that sentiment was echoed by his counterpart, Lee Radford at Headingley. Hull had spoken openly about being better equipped to deal with the play-offs following their Challenge Cup victory this year but, as they did 12 months ago, they have fallen at the semi-final stage again.
They pushed Leeds every step of the way but, perhaps crucially, the Rhinos’ big-game experience came to the fore again as it has so many times in the past.“It’s hugely disappointing not to make it,” said Radford. “We just fell short again but I can’t knock them.” That Leeds won by only two points illustrates how closely contested an affair it was – but the Rhinos quickly raced into a 12-0 lead in the opening exchanges before Hull fought back well. The Rhinos captain, Danny McGuire, on his final Headingley appearance as a Leeds player, was hugely influential in creating tries for Stevie Ward and Anthony Mullally to establish an early lead for the hosts. Perhaps the one blow on the night for Leeds was that Ward was withdrawn in the closing stages with a shoulder injury, making him a doubt for Old Trafford. But before that a run of three consecutive tries after half-time – with the retiring Gareth Ellis, Mahe Fonua and Sika Manu all crossing – put the visitors ahead by four heading into the final quarter. Leeds needed Authentic Allen Robinson Womens Jersey a response but, on this occasion, it was not McGuire who provided it.
Instead it was the young centre, Liam Sutcliffe, whose marauding run levelled the scores at 16-16, before Kallum Watkins nervelessly kicked the winning goal soon after.Eight, in many ways, is the magic number here. Castleford have won their last eight meetings with Leeds – but should the Rhinos snap that streak next week, it will ensure Super League title No8 – and perhaps the most satisfying one yet. I’m sure that, as a team, we can make that difference.”Thus far Ferrari have done just that – their revised bargeboard and floor package was working well. Their pace was impressive regardless of everybody else’s performance. Should Mercedes be unable to find what is making the difference in their garage by qualifying on Saturday morning, Vettel could be in the best possible position to ensure Hamilton endures another disappointing weekend in Malaysia.
