Semi Final Here We Come

My first congratulations has to go to the whole of the Leeds Rhinos team for an amazing second half performance at today’s quarter final game against Hull FC.  After the first half, I feared the worst as we looked lacklustre, tired & slow.  Giving penalties, possession & territory away, we just weren’t making it very easy for ourselves.  Hull just seemed to be tearing us apart in places.

In the second half we seemed like a completely different team, Robbie Burrow, especially totally changed the game with the help of Carl Ablett, both of which would have been at the top of my list for man of the match.

My second congratulations goes to Sir Kevin Sinfield, surpassing the Leeds legend, Lewis Jones’, Goalkickers Record of 1,244 which has stood since 1964.  This man is surely a legend of our game, an awesome player, an incredible captain and a gentleman.

I cannot wait for the semi finals, even if I now have family rivalries to cope with as opposed to office ones…bring it on!
