Richard Agar says Leeds capitulated in the second half of Friday’s 26-12 defeat to the Salford Red Devils, a result which leaves the Rhinos 10th in the Betfred Super League and with just one win from six matches.
Leeds were 12-8 ahead in the second half but they couldn’t keep out the hosts, who saw Chris Atkin, Elijah Taylor and Ryan Brierley all cross over to secure the comeback victory.
The Red Devils have now won three of their six Super League games this season, leaving them seventh in the standings, while the Rhinos only have the sole victory to their name and are in a tricky period right now.
Speaking about the defeat to BBC Radio Leeds, Agar said: “I didn’t think we showed enough grit and resilience and the last two tries we conceded were a capitulation really.”
Elsewhere on Friday, Catalans Dragons made it five consecutive Betfred Super League wins as they edged out Hull KR 18-10 on home soil, leaving the French outfit second in the table.
Rovers remain in eighth place, having won two and lost four of their six matches, and they return to Super League action on April 1 with a home clash against Warrington Wolves.
