I set off to the Leeds Rhinos vs Crusaders game today in a bit of a rush after spending far too much money on furniture for my new house, so didn’t really have time to think about the build up to the game. This turned out to be a good thing as when we arrived with only half an hour to spare, I started to get a little nervous!
I know that we beat our opponents a couple of weeks earlier, but it just had that nervous cup feeling about it! We started off like we’d taken a step backwards after the last couple of weeks! Dropping balls, missing tackles & ending up being 10-0 down
We then started to play, some awesome rugby came from nowhere with both Robbie Burrow & Jay Pitt having brilliant games. The bad news came when we lost 3 players to injuries over the course of the game; Danny McGuire, Brent Webb & Chris Clarkson. Here’s hoping that they’re not as bad as they looked, as we could really do without losing many more!
Overall, we played well with some bad injuries, reshuffling of players & some very stupid actions from players that resulted in penalties being given away, something that I thought we’d got to the bottom of.
Roll on the 5th round & fingers crossed for a good draw! Now to get home & watch it all over again on Sky Plus, where if pictures are to be believed, Danny McGuire takes his clothes off (Sorry, I know it gives us female supporters a bad name, but I just couldn’t resist )
