WOUNDED league leaders Leeds Rhinos will be looking to get back on the horse this week.

Rhinos will travel to Huddersfield Giants on Thursday night still smarting from a 29-10 home drubbing by Warrington Wolves six days earlier.

The short turnaround gives Rhinos little time to dwell on their second loss in 12 First Utility Super League rounds.

And Headingley Carnegie-based front row forward Brad Singleton said that’s just how they like it.

“We are looking forward to playing Huddersfield,” Singleton insisted.

“It’s good we’ve got a short turnaround, that’s what we all want.

“We are all professional players – that’s why we play rugby league, to play the game. The shorter the turnaround the better.”

Singleton admitted Rhinos will need to find a big improvement this week, after Warrington outplayed them for the second time in less than two months.

The visitors were on top throughout and Singleton admitted: “We struggled a bit, nothing seemed to go for us.

“We couldn’t hold on to the ball and I think they got every 50-50, which made it tough for us. We did a lot of D (defence) and that tired us out.

“It wasn’t all through our own fault, but sometimes it was. We made some sloppy errors.

“We did find it hard, but we should have come through that.

“We have got to review the game, take the positives from it and move forward.”
