A second half comeback in where the Rhinos scored 16 points allowed them to continue their run over the black and whites to six consecutive victories with four of them coming at the KC Stadium.
It was the cliche game of two halves as Hull led 13-4 at the break but the sixteen points scored by Leeds to Hull’s two in the second half secured victory as Leeds now try to secure the best possible run of fixtures they can in the second half.
Tonight seen the debut of James Segeyaro after the signing of the PNG hooker last month from NRL side Penrith Panthers. Despite the lack of game time for the hooter who hasn’t played for six weeks he looked sharp and led the Rhinos attack and was insturmental in their go forward.
The Leeds defence was on fire for most of the game and had several try saving tackles which ended up securing the victory for the visitors. Leeds have scored the least amount of tries and points in the division this season so defence will have to be an area which is good for them to try and secure more victories.
The Hull back went off half way through the first half and never reappeared with early indications showing the center picked up a hamstring niggle which the home side didn’t want to risk with the Derby and Cup semi-finals coming up in the next few weeks. The Hull side seemed to lack an attacking edge out wide without him.
