The Panthers started well scoring a try on their first run of the game but the Rhinos hit back almost immediately with Thomas McKay bursting over for a try.
Chorley once again took advantage of some sloppy Rhinos tackling as they took the lead again with a well worked try.
This time it was Charlie Wells who powered his way over to level the scores at 8-8.
Some strong defending from Thomas Coburn and Reece Ward forced the Panthers to turn over the ball and Owen Elliott scored on the next play to give the Rhinos the lead.
Chorley hit straight back again with another try as both sides tried their best to take control.
It was Cadishead however that were making the most of their possession and tries from Jay Pollock and Owen Elliott put some daylight between the two sides for the first time.
The Panthers refused to lie down though and a try before half time left the Rhinos with a slim 20-16 lead at the break.
Cadishead started the second half in determined mood and some good work from Mica Jones laid the platform for Jay Pollock to outpace the Panthers defence to score outwide and extend the Rhinos lead to 24-16.
The Panthers who had made too many errors in the first half started to play some more direct rugby and the Rhinos struggled to cope with their strong running forwards who brought them level in a tremendous 5 minute spell which saw them score two quick tries.
Captain Jay Pollock restored the Rhinos lead when he collected a pass from Connor Bailey to score out wide and take the scores to 28-24.
Chorley rallied again and a try with 2 minutes to go set up a tense finish with the scores at 28 all.
Both sides were given one more set of six and some fierce tackling from the Rhinos saw the opponents spill the ball early in the tackle count.
Deep in the Chorley half the Rhinos bombarded the Panthers line before Owen Elliott crashed over for a last gasp win much to the delight of the players and parents.
Morgan Jones who played the second half for Chorley was awarded the Top Tackler Award after two bone crunching tackles stopped Owen Elliott.
Thomas McKay received the award for best effort following a tremendous all round performance.
Hat trick hero Owen Elliott was the Rhinos Man of Steel however it was the inspirational Charlie Wells who won the Man of The Match Award!
Well done to both sides for serving up a fantastic feast of rugby in the first game back after the Summer Break.
