Rhinos close to vital win - Sutcliffe

28th March 2019, 11:10 by Nick Harris

Leeds Rhinos are close to getting the win they need to get their season underway is not far off, according to Liam Sutcliffe.

One win, away at Salford, all season sees the Rhinos sat at the bottom of the table two points adrift of the rest but Sutcliffe believes they are not far way from clicking into gear.

As they prepare to face Castleford Tigers, a team they have lost to in 11 straight regular season Super League games, at Headingley on Thursday night Sutcliffe says the players are aware they are in a tricky spot.

"We know we need a win, we are aiming to kick on and do that and hopefully it will come (tonight)," Sutcliffe told the Yorkshire Post.

"I don't think we are far off. You look at parts of the game and we do look good, it's just little bits – like discipline and errors – that really cost us. The other team seem to be able to get a roll on and score off the back of that, so that's what's really letting us down at the moment.

"I think if we fix those couple of areas up we will get there."
