Leeds will learn from defeat - Merrin
Trent Merrin says the opening day defeat for the Leeds Rhinos at Warrington will be a 'lesson learned'.
The Rhinos were comfortably put to the sword against the Wolves on Saturday evening when Merrin and the other new recruits were making their debuts for the club.
It was certainly a disappointing start for the new players and Merrin says they will be looking to do better next time, with the Rhinos are away at champions Wigan this weekend.
Merrin told the Yorkshire Post: “Obviously you prepare as hard as you can, but if you come out and give a team like that all the possession and defend the way we did, you are always going to have a tough night at the office.
“It is a lesson learned there, it is a long season so we’ll just build off that.”
