1: The only reputations being enhanced at the moment are Jamie Peacock and Kevin Sinfield’s.

2: When fans have to remind players to kick on the last tackle, something has gone badly wrong.

3: Rhinos are trapped in a vicious circle. You can’t win without confidence and can’t gain confidence without winning.

4: Leeds are too easy to defend against at the moment. They had more than their fair share of the ball, but Wildcats rarely looked in trouble.

5: Wakefield winger Tom Johnstone is an outstanding talent. He used raw pace to set up a try for Jacob Miller and made two sensational tackles to keep Rhinos out.
