Brian McDermott relieved by Leeds Rhinos win

Leeds Rhinos coach Brian McDermott admits that he is relieved following the team's dramatic victory at Catalans Dragons in Super League.

Leeds Rhinos coach Brian McDermott has expressed his relief following the team's last-gasp win at Catalans Dragons in Super League.

The Rhinos looked to be heading for defeat on Sunday before Liam Sutcliffe's penalty at the death earned them a 32-31 victory.

The dramatic triumph has seen Leeds move to within one point of leaders St Helens.

"I'm not happy at conceding 31 points, but we were playing a very good Catalan team," McDermott told BBC Sport. "I'm comfortable with the win.

"We scored more tries than them and, while we weren't great and while I had resigned myself to the loss and we feel fortunate to have won, I'm not ashamed either."

Leeds continue their Super League campaign on Friday with a trip to Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.
