Singleton eager to prove himself at Leeds


Young Leeds prop Brad Singleton is desperate to prove his worth to the Rhinos with a run of games in the Super League.

Singleton, 20, is in Leeds coach Brian McDermott\’s 19-man squad for the trip to Hull and is hoping to feature for the Rhinos again after coming off the bench on Sunday.

That performance at Magic Weekend marked only his fourth of the season for Leeds but, with Jamie Peacock a long-term casualty and Ian Kirke a doubt for Friday, Singleton is looking to grab his opportunity with both hands.

He said: \”I thought I did all right against Wigan. I knocked on first touch so I was a bit annoyed with that, but, otherwise, I thought I went reasonably well. I just wanted to go out there and play well.

\”I like playing a lot of minutes and my aim is to play my way into the first team. With the opportunity I have got now, I hope I can do that. Injuries just create opportunities and I’ve got to make the most of it.\”

Leeds travel to Hull on Friday night on the back of three straight defeats, knowing a win could see them leapfrog Warrington into third.
