Leeds Rhinos interim coach Richard Agar admitted he wasn’t happy with his side’s attack, but had huge praise for their defence as they beat London 36-10 to secure their Super League status.
The win in the capital moved the Rhinos four points clear of the bottom of the table Broncos with only two games remaining, with a vastly superior points difference ensuring Leeds will avoid relegation.
The Rhinos have scored a lot of points in recent weeks, but it was their efforts without the ball which particularly impressed their boss.
“To keep them to nil at half-time, there were some great last-ditch, try-saving efforts,” Agar told The Yorkshire Posts’ Peter Smith.
“The way we finished the game defensively, I thought, was pretty good. But attack-wise, despite scoring 36 points, I don’t think we executed what we planned to do.
“We played a lot of pretty average, one-out football and I would say there was a lot of anxiety about what we were doing.
“But we got it back and finished quite strongly. It was a tough game, on a tough pitch and there was a lot of pressure on the game in terms of what it meant to our season.”
