I know what’s wrong, insists Leeds’ Brian McDermott

Leeds Rhinos coach Brian McDermott insists he knows what is wrong with his team’s performances lately – but says it’s not a simple fix.

McDermott’s Rhinos are six points adrift of the top four already in Super League following another defeat, this time to local rivals Wakefield on Easter Monday.

And the Rhinos chief says that there are “obvious things” not going to plan for his team at the moment, and the group know what is going wrong for his troops.

“There are some obvious things that are not there for us,” he said.

“I know what’s wrong and we know what’s wrong, but going out there and executing that is a different matter. That’s what makes sport really interesting.

“It’s not slide rules and science. If we just pressed a few buttons and all of a sudden people started playing well and with confidence, we’d all be coaches.

“We’ve got to be as good at this end of the table as we are at the other end of the table.

“We’ve got some hard work to do and things we need to fix up. I’m confident the group will do that.”
