Coach hails Rhinos victory
McClennan pays tribute to players after crushing victory
Leeds coach Brian McClennan has paid tribute to his side after they demolished Wakefield in a 10-try romp on Friday.
The Rhinos surged seven points clear at the top of the Super League following the 58-12 win at Headingley.
"It was a case of well done to all the players and good to consolidate our position at the top of the table, said McClennan.
"It was one of my easiest half-time team talks.
"I just said 'keep doing what you're doing' and I felt a little sorry for Wakefield because it all happened so quickly and is hard to stop.
"They were trying very hard but this Leeds side is so quick and they can break away really quickly."
McClennan singled out Danny McGuire, who again showcased his try-scoring capabilities in the most devastating fashion.
"That's Danny isn't it?" He added. "He's Jonny on the spot and has got terrific anticipation.
"He adds to the side and it was another good effort."
But the coach reserved special praise for captain Kevin Sinfield, whose exploits earned him a place in Super League folklore alongside Andy Farrell after he equalled the rugby league legend's record of scoring in 48 successive Super League rounds.
He added: "Kevin is held in high regard at this club by all the players. He's a tremendous skipper and a tremendous person.
"It's his testimonial year this year and it's going along great for him. But Kev always does well for us."
Wakefield coach John Kear admitted his side simply could not cope with the rampant Rhinos.
"For 25 to 30 minutes it was a good competitive Super League game," said Kear, who reported injuries to replacements Tevita Leo-Latu (hand) and Ricky Bibey (suspected broken rib).
"For 50 minutes I thought it was an exhibition game for Leeds. Leeds played really well but we underperformed.
"It's a slight concern because it's twice we've done that now against Leeds.
"But they're certainly the best team in Super League and unfortunately they've shown it twice against Wakefield."
