Leeds Rhinos Head Coach Brian McDermott spoke to the press this morning ahead of Friday’s opening game of the Betfred Super League Super 8s when Wigan arrive at Headingley Carnegie.

McDermott spoke about the news surrounding youngsters Alex Sutcliffe and Jack Walker, after they agreed new deals with the club, the reaction of the squad to last week’s Cup exit, Wigan’s form coming into the game, Tom Briscoe’s preparations for Friday’s match and the team selection against Wigan a fortnight ago when the Rhinos lost at the DW Stadium.
