Hetherington: March crucial for Leeds

Leeds CEO Gary Hetherington says change could be on the way at Headingley if the club doesn’t turn its form around this month.

The Rhinos were heavily embarassed by Castleford last week and lost their season opener against St Helens.

After defeating Leigh and Salford, Leeds sit with a two defeat and two win record after four rounds.

In 2016 the Rhinos suffered a disastrous year and finished in the bottom.

In a letter to Leedsfans, Hetherington said the decision not to make major changes last year was a “judgement call which I believe was the right one”.

But we are not stubborn enough to believe no change is always the best option.

“But equally we don’t make knee-jerk decisions and any actions have to be carefully thought out with the only consideration of ‘what’s in the best interests of the club now and in the future’.”

“This month is an important one with games against Catalans Dragons, Wakefield Trinity, Huddersfield Giants and Wigan Warriors and at its end we will be in a much better position to make an accurate judgement on the performance of all our players, coaching staff and senior management including myself.”
