Agar says Rhinos focused on the job in hand

Leeds Rhinos Head Coach Richard Agar has said his side are focused on the job in hand ahead of their Betfred Super League clash with Castleford Tigers at Emerald Headingley on Thursday despite reaching the Challenge Cup Final and Covid issues for their previous and next opponent.

Agar was speaking before Castleford announced they had had to stand down three members of the First Team squad having received a positive result in the weekly round of Covid-19 tests conducted at Super League clubs.

These players are now self-isolating for a minimum of 10 days as per the Government guidelines. As part of the track and trace protocols, a further six members of the Tigers squad have been stood down.
