Leeds Rhinos player ratings as Zane Tetevano demonstrates world class talent

Leeds Rhinos returned to winning ways with a 46-10 win over Leigh Centurions.

Here are the player ratings

Richie Myler – 6 : A quiet night with the ball with his distribution of the ball off. But he did his defensive duties well, claiming high kicks and returning the ball well.

Tom Briscoe – 7 : Solid outing rewarded with two tries. Different finishes were required but he dispatched of them impressively.

Harry Newman – 7 : Another good showing, carrying well and producing a lovely assist for Briscoe’s first of the evening.

Konrad Hurrell – 6 : Started the game well with strong carries but was again suspect defensively. Tried in vain to overcome an injury picked up just before half-time but was withdrawn shortly after his edge was exploited again.

Ash Handley – 6 : The captain for the night wasn’t as active as usual but did nothing wrong. Scored a late try.

Rob Lui – 8 : Fine performance from the halfback, who did everything with intent. Physically, looked great on the night, which is a good sign given his injury woe.

Luke Gale – 5 : Only played 15 minutes before coming off through injury. The big negative of the night for the Rhinos.

Bodene Thompson – 7 : Reliable as ever. Carried hard and Leigh really struggled to put him down.

Kruise Leeming – 7 : Silky try assist for Tetevano’s opener and wrapped up his own evening with a try on the hooter.

Zane Tetevano – 9 : The star man. Set the tone with the first carry of the match and was a colossus throughout. Scored a try and was exceptional in the absence of Oledzki and Prior.

Morgan Gannon – 7 : By no means bad and did what he needed to but not as noticeable as he has been previously. That said, he did it over 80 minutes, his first full game in Super League.

Rhyse Martin – 7 : His goal-kicking was excellent but he was pretty strong generally throughout the game.

Jarrod O’Connor – 7 : Had an important role to play in a starting position but did it without letting anyone down. Got through a stack of work.

Brad Dwyer – 7 : Marked as the dangerman by Leigh coach Kurt Haggerty but the players didn’t listen hard enough. Scorched through for a great try.

Luke Briscoe – 6 : Only came on midway through the second-half but was solid impactful. Didn’t have enough time to earn a higher mark.

Tom Holroyd – 7 : Came off the bench and ran hard throughout. Maybe gets a lower mark than deserved because he had to try and replicate the work done by Tetevano.

Cameron Smith – 7 : Another great performance from a man having an impressive season. His link between the halves and the forward is key but he ran hard here.
