Richard Agar praises Richie Myler impact in Leeds win at Salford

Leeds coach Richard Agar lauded the impact that his subs made in their win at Salford.

The Rhinos came from being 8-0 down to score 22 unanswered points and claim a 22-8 victory at the AJ Bell Stadium on Saturday.

Richie Myler and Adam Cuthbertson started the game on the bench – but Agar was delighted with their contribution.

Agar said: “It was a game of two halves for us. We were really scrappy and poor in the first half but the try just before half-time was a big moment for us.

“Sometimes you just have to adapt your style of football to conditions and we got it better in the second half. The introduction of Richie Myler and (Adam) Cuthbertson really helped us.

“We had a lot more energy in our tanks in that second half and our execution was a bit more clinical. It wasn’t real pretty but sometimes you’ve got to roll your sleeves up and scrap for a win.

“There was not too much we could take out of that first half – we didn’t execute in any area of the game. But after that our half-backs managed the game pretty well.”
