Agar backed by Leeds star
Leeds front-rower Adam Cuthbertson has heaped the praise on Richard Agar ahead of Sunday's trip to London.
The Rhinos head to Ealing knowing a win would all-but guarantee their place in the Super League next season, while a defeat would put them right back in relegation danger.
Cutherbertson says Leeds must get "a win at all costs" in the capital and he is convinced they can come away with maximum points.
Agar was appointed as interim coach after David Furner was sacked in May and has managed six wins in 12 league games, but the West Yorkshire-outfit are yet to confirm their coaching plans for next season.
The Australian has enjoyed working under Agar and he feels the former Wakefield coach has overseen an improvement in his own form.
"We've been playing a good brand and been executing it quite well," he told the Yorkshire Evening Post.
"It has been good," he added on his own form. "I had a funny sort of game against Saints [a 36-20 defeat at home in the previous round], a good game within a bad one.
"I made two silly errors, but nothing I can't fix up.
"I have been really enjoying my rugby, especially the last couple of months under Rich. It has sort of brought me back to life a bit."
