It's three big wins from three but star full-back Caitlin Beevers says Leeds Rhinos Women can improve

Leeds Rhinos Women have scored 210 points in three games this year, with only 16 conceded, but full-back Caitlin Beevers reckons they can be better.

Rhinos take on Wakefield Trinity at Mobile Rocket Stadium, Belle Vue, on Sunday (noon) aiming to make it three wins from three in Betfred Women’s Super League and build on last weekend’s Challenge Cup defeat of Bradford Bulls.

After beating York City Knights 68-16 in their opening league match, Rhinos didn’t concede a point against Featherstone Rovers or Bradford.

Beevers, though, stressed: “I think every team could get better.”

She said: “You could win 100-0 and there’d still be points to improve on.

“We are analysing each game and looking at things we need to improve to go against those big teams and make us a little bit better.

“That’s what a really good team does, it doesn’t solely focus on its achievements, it looks at what it can do next to improve.”

Rhinos are in Challenge Cup semi-final action next weekend against St Helens, who - remarkably - have made an even more impressive start to the season, winning their three games by a combined score of 220-10.

Beevers said the clash with Wakefield is an essential part of their preparation, rather than a distraction.

“If anything, this game is going to be our platform,” she said.

“We will go into it the same as we would against Saints or anybody.

“I don’t think our attitude really changes.

“If we have a great game this weekend it will put us in good stead for next week.

“We will have a lot more faith in ourselves, I think - and it will be good to show the opposition what they are coming up against.”

Trinity haven’t won so far this season, but Beevers vowed: “We will never underestimate a team.

"We have no doubt Wakefield will put their best into the game, but we go into each game the same; we focus on ourselves more than the opposition and that’s what we need to do to make us a better team.”
