Rohan Smith remains silent on controversial Leeds Rhinos decision after RFL request

General thoughts
A good tough game, isn’t it? A great way to end Easter Sunday. A good game just to have a show like this. It was a mixed performance for us, but resilience was at the forefront. We found another piece of equipment when we had twelve men and when we were in the lead at the end we did enough and it felt like they appreciated that element as well which is important.

Worried about the bad start?
Not too much. Our first halves were not solid. We lost most games at halftime. But our second halves were particularly good, they were down last season and this season. They must have been because we were down at halftime. We also have to take care of the start of the game.

The answer to sin-bin
We found energy on both occasions when we had twelve men this year. We did well during this period. I think in the modern game it’s more common to play twelve so players aren’t so shocked. Going to a lot of football and games growing up, going at 12 was a big thing. But now I think a lot of teams can find ten minutes without too much trouble.

We certainly found another level of energy and I think Tetevano and Lisone on the bench today had a real impact in tandem. They played with each other and fed on each other. Zane had a spring in his step and Sam had a big impact.

The nerves at the end?
Not too bad, I didn’t have too many flutters in close games. I’m not sure what that means.

There’s a big difference between a strong little game and what we think is bad. It gives us confidence and confidence because it was the first time at the back that both teams were tired. There were other games where we had to work hard until the end when we were full of energy. But that’s the game. High-quality games, we’ve found enough.
