“We should have put more points on them”, claims Richard Agar

After a Golden Point 15-13 victory over Wakefield, Leeds boss Richard Agar took some positives, but believed his side should have won by more.

“I thought it had elements of craziness to it; I thought defensively we looked pretty good most of the night.

“The first try we got pulled apart on the edge and that was a disappointment and then Ash didn’t kill that ball for their second.

“I thought generally for the best part we defended really well, but we shot ourselves in the foot multiple times with silly penalties and dumb and crazy errors.

“I was questioning at times what we were thinking out there, though I always felt we had a strong desire to win the game.

“There were two or three times when we should have scored; I thought we got to positions, where from an execution point of view, we should have put some more points on them.”

Agar was full of praise for a particular 17-year-old in Rhinos colours.

“I thought Morgan Gannon, to play the minutes he did with some quality, was a shining light and he takes everything in his stride really.”

Of course, the game ended when Jay Pitts was adjudged to have stolen the ball from King Vuniyayawa after referee Robert Hicks had called held. Agar, however, believed it was the correct call.

“I think i’s a penalty; he’s tackled him and he’s on the floor, but i think that rule is debatable what it brings to the sport.

“We had the same situation at Huddersfield a few weeks ago and it’s such a fine line.”
