Leeds Rhinos coach Brian McDermott praises his side's "dominant" performance as they beat Hull 36-6 to start the defence of their Super League title.

Leeds Rhinos coach Brian McDermott has praised his side's "dominant" performance as they got the new Super League season off to a winning start against Hull on Friday.

The champions and their opponents were level after the opening half at Headingley before the Rhinos ran out 36-6 winners.

"It was a tough one to start with and we knew it would be," McDermott told Sky Sports News. "For 60 minutes it could have gone either way.

"Although it was 6-6 at half time, I thought we were the more dominant team.

"I thought we were very good. You can't reach that level every week but you can maintain that effort."

McDermott signed an open-ended contract with Leeds before the match on Friday.
