Skipper Kevin Sinfield today declared Leeds Rhinos satisfied with their start to the season – but admitted the hard work is yet to come. The Tetley’s Super League leaders have a 100 per cent winning record with a quarter of the season gone and Sinfield told the Yorkshire Evening Post: "We got six points from six over Easter. "At the start of the year you might have said Salford and Huddersfield might be two easy games, but as the season has progressed they have managed to pull results together and they proved two very tough ones. "Leading into the Bradford game we knew the next couple were going to be very difficult, especially in the space of time we had. "We have used the time we’ve had in between games wisely and we’ve had some days off and done some good practice sessions. "It has been good. There’s been some new guys in who’ve had a run and freshened things up. "To get six points over Easter, we are chuffed to bits. "Hopefully we can kick on from here, keep improving and stay top of the league." Rhinos have now matched the winning start they made to last season, but Sinfield said: "We aren’t looking back to last year, we aren’t even thinking about seven from seven. "All we are thinking about now is the next game, at Wakefield on Friday. That is the most important thing. "When we start thinking ‘we’ve won this and we’ve won that’, that’s when we will get knocked off. "We have got to make sure we are fully focused and switched on. Wakefield are a good side and I am sure they will come out firing. "It is always tough at Belle Vue. They have got some very good players and Shane McNally is a very good coach. "He will have them fired up. It is a local derby again, but if we want to be pushing to be minor premiers we have got to go to places like Wakefield and get two points. "It is not just about our home form, it is about travelling well, so Friday is an important one for us."
