RHI­NOS RAMPAGE DRIVEN BY FEAR

RUGBY LEAGUE

Daily Mirror - - SPORT - GARETH WALKER

BRIAN McDER­MOTT says the fear fac­tor helped Leeds hand Sal­ford their big­gest de­feat of the sea­son to leapfrog them in the ta­ble.

Vet­eran cap­tain Danny McGuire (above) pulled the strings as the Rhi­nos blew the home side off the pitch in a dev­as­tat­ing spell of 36 points in 25 first-half min­utes. With Leeds now sec­ond, boss McDer­mott said: “It’s not a false po­si­tion Sal­ford are in, and some­times you have to fear the op­po­si­tion to bring out the best in you.”

Sal­ford coach Ian Wat­son said: “Leeds taught us a les­son.”

Ref James Child had a plas­tic bot­tle thrown at him as he left the pitch.
