The Rhinos made it six wins from their 12 games last Sunday when they produced arguably their most complete performance to date with a 63-48 victory over Saracens Mavericks with player-of-the-match Donnell Wallam putting in a superb shooting display.
Head coach Dan Ryan had nothing but praise for the Rhinos display against the Mavericks but knows the team faces a big weekend starting with the Sirens match tomorrow.
“Their work ethic on the court was phenomenal,” he said. “I’m so proud of each and every one of them.
“We were a brand new team [at the start of the season] and we knew we had to learn a lot about ourselves and each other under pressure before we got to the point where we could win under pressure.
“It’s been a gradual process for us but there’s some wonderful talent in our team and what’s great about our group is that they play so well for each other.”
He added: “We’ve got a big weekend coming up with games against Sirens and Wasps, so we’ll see how we can keep progressing.”
Rhinos currently sit in sixth place in the Superleague table while Sirens are seventh.
