Leeds boss wants more

Leeds coach Brian McClennan saw his side batter Huddersfield 46-8 to get back to winning ways, but insisted he wants to see more from his stuttering champions.

The Rhinos had lost three of their last four games to slip off the top of the table in favour of St Helens, but they found that winning edge again on Friday.

A poor Huddersfield side were easily brushed aside at Headingley, but McClennan knows they will need to be stronger to beat Catalans Dragons in France next week.

"We played pretty well in the first half but I thought the second half was really poor," said McClennan.

"Both teams were really poor. We coughed up the ball eight times and Huddersfield spilled it even more. We have still got a lot of work to do.

"We need to improve on that if we are to stay in big games and compete at the top level of the game."

Leeds had differing injury fortunes as hooker Matt Diskin left the action early on with an elbow injury, while Clinton Toopi returned to the side after an injury lay-off.

"That was a positive," McClennan added. "It was good to see Toops back out there. He looked good on his feet."

Poor

Huddersfield caretaker coach Keiron Purtill accepted Leeds had been clinical in their finishing, but admitted his own side were not at the races.

The Giants have won their last three games at home but away it has been a different story with nearly 12 months since their last away win.

"Obviously, we are disappointed with the result," added Purtill.

"I thought Leeds were very good. They were very clinical and had a point to prove after losing at Wigan.

"These are tough times for us at the moment. We've just got to keep working hard and come through the other side.

"Consistency has been a problem for us this year. We are giving away too many penalties and making too many errors.

"We've got to have a look at ourselves and put things right."
