2 Wins Back 2 Back....
Leeds Rhinos made it two wins from as many games as they overcame Medway Dragons 78-42 in an entertaining game at Medway Park.
Both sides opened up with three tries each within the first fifteen minutes of the game, but tries from Tom Haliwell, Jodie Boyd-Ward and Ryan Richardson saw the Rhinos cruise to a comfortable 20-point lead.
Medway did cut the gap back to ten points with two well-worked tries from Sebastian Groves, but the game swung back to the Rhinos as a try for Josh Butler and another try for Richardson saw the Rhinos take control of the game.
Medway recovered to score a late first half penalty and they trailed 46-26 at the break.
The Dragons then started the second half on the front foot and, with help from Martin Lane, they managed to cut the gap back to ten points with 30 minutes left to play.
But, with the Dragons tiring late on, the Rhinos racked up 26 unanswered points, scoring five tries to close out an impressive victory on the road.
