Leeds Rhinos coach Brian McDermott says that his side did not get to grips with their game against Salford City Reds yesterday, despite winning by 18 points.

Brian McDermott has said that Leeds Rhinos overplayed in their 42-14 win over Salford City Reds in the Super League last night.

The reigning Super League champions scored seven tries in their win over Salford yesterday evening, but were made to work hard by their opponents.

The Leeds coach told BBC Sport: "It was scrappy. We didn't get to grips with the game and it was not a great spectacle.

"There were times when we had lots of options and things to go at, but we overplayed. It prepared us for next week because some lads got good game time, and those are the positives.

"We will take the positives and, if we had have had a shocker, we would have waved it off. We wanted to take care of what we could and we did that, to a degree."

Leeds are third in the table after three games.
