Richard Agar: Hull were bigger and better than us

Leeds coach Richard Agar insists his side will learn quickly following their opening round defeat to Hull.

The Rhinos were heavily beaten 30-4 by the Airlie Birds at Emerald Headingley on Sunday.

Agar commented: “We had some strong carries and a couple of opportunities to score tries in the first half and, in a game like this, you need to put them away.

“The conditions meant it was a big enough lead for them to stay calm, it’s difficult to chase four tries on a night like tonight.

“Some individuals were off, too, but we learn pretty quickly, we certainly know we can be better than tonight and I don’t want to take anything away from Hull, who I thought were great.

“We were beaten by a bigger and better team tonight but we still believe in what we are doing.”
