Rhinos still have work to do – Agar

6th July 2019, 13:23 by Bobbie Jackson

Richard Agar has warned his Leeds Rhinos side about the importance of staying focused after beating Castleford Tigers.

Back-to-back victories over Catalans Dragons and Cas suggest Leeds might just have enough quality to drag themselves clear of relegation.

Leeds were sitting comfortably with a 12-0 advantage after 55 minutes with Trent Merrin, and Jack Walker crossing, although they had to see out the game in a nervy fashion.

A late double score from James Clare reduced the deficit and bring the home side back into the clash but ultimately they fell to an 18-10 defeat.

Rhinos now sit two points clear of basement duo London Broncos and Hull KR but Agar admits they still have plenty of work to do.

"One game at a time," Agar said.

"We talked about 10 cup finals, we've had two and they are all important games, week by week.

"We have got the talent and commitment. We just need to keep that together and all the other stuff takes care of itself."
