Leeds’ defeat to Hull FC was quite bizarre; for large parts of the game, the Rhinos dominated territory and possession, but just couldn’t find a way through steely Hull defence.
For Leeds boss Richard Agar, their inability to take their chances came back to haunt his side.
“It’s obviously a tight game; Hull have had tight contests all season and particularly in the last 20 minutes,” Agar said.
“We felt we did a lot of things right during the game – we got our defence organised really well and survived some pressure early on.
“But, we’ve had a couple of one-on-one misses that have really hurt us on the scoreboard.
“I felt we had a couple of chances in there and we had two disallowed, but the game got really error strewn and messy in the second-half for a number of reasons.
“I thought the pressure we had in the last 20 minutes of the game, we got a bit sideways and didn’t get to the right areas enough as we should have done – we didn’t take our chances.”
Agar was also unhappy with a number of calls that went against Leeds.
“There seemed to be a lot of question marks on some of the decisions, but it’s always good to have a look at the tapes and study them.
“I definitely would not be looking at that as to why we didn’t get the win though.”
The Leeds boss also hailed the return of the crowd to Headingley.
“I just felt when the guys came out to warm up, it was emotional; it was pretty special to experience that.”
