Rhi­nos have it all to do

Halifax Courier - - Sport -

Act­ing cap­tain Rob Bur­row ex­pects the real Leeds to turn up for Sun­day’s World Club Chal­lenge against North Queens­land Cow­boys.

Bur­row, deputis­ing for the Rhi­nos’ in­jured new skip­per Danny McGuire, ad­mits that Sun­day’s 56-12 maul­ing by Widnes could hardly have been worse prepa­ra­tion for ar­guably the Su­per League cham­pi­ons’ big­gest game of the year.

Leeds are bot­tom of the ta­ble af­ter their worst start to a sea­son in 16 years and they also lost three more play­ers to in­jury, but Bur­row in­sists they did not have one eye on the visit of the Aus­tralian cham­pi­ons in the cli­max to the 2016 World Club Se­ries.

“I know a lot of peo­ple in the crowd are go­ing to be think­ing that but that’s not the case,” Bur­row said.

“It’s never the case. We need ev­ery two points we can get in Su­per League, it’s that tight.

“We were fo­cused on play­ing well. But we didn’t, we were ter­ri­ble. Ev­ery­thing went wrong for us.”
