Sailor try sets up Rhinos fightback

Leeds Rhinos 26 Castleford Tigers 21

Attendance: 10,900

A great try from Wendell Sailor midway through the 2nd half set up the
opportunity for the Rhinos to overcome a 4-21 defecit. He received the ball
about 40 metres out, shrugged off two or three tacklers, and scored in the
corner. Give this guy a bit of space and he is lethal.

I feel a bit sorry for Castleford because they were the more *** force
for the first 60 minutes especially in the forwards. Leeds were also
coughing up a lot of posession as well. The Sailor try however seemed to
wake up the rest of the Leeds players from their slumber, and the last 20
minutes saw Leeds dominate and run in another four tries.

I enjoyed the game - much better than the Halifax clash. It's just a shame
that Wendell will now be spending the rest of his stay in Leeds as a
spectator on the wing.

Happy new year to all.
