Belief key for Rhinos star

24th August 2019, 14:42 by Gareth Freeman

Leeds Rhinos hooker Brad Dwyer is convinced his side can pull clear of danger in the Super League.

The Rhinos travel to bottom club London Broncos next Sunday knowing a win would see them move four points clear of danger with just two games to play, while a defeat would ensure a nervy end to the campaign.

Dwyer is in confident mood ahead of the trip to London, however, and is convinced Leeds can retain their top-flight status.

"I don't think it matters who we're playing," the 26-year-old hooker told the Yorkshire Evening Post. "If we turn up and we believe we can look after the ball, then the points will come. If we turn up for each other in defence then we'll be fine.

"But the amount of defence we're making ourselves do it's just not good for any team. I don't care who it is.

"It's about us getting ourselves in a mindset of going down to London, looking after the ball and then the big plays will happen for us as we have the players who can do that."

Leeds complete the season with home games against Salford and Warrington.
