The half-back was partnered with Robert Lui for the first time and while the recent recruit didn’t have a huge impact on the game, he still turned in a seven-out-of-10 display.

And, with the halves functioning behind a go-forward pack, Leeds Rhinos looked far more organised than they have in a long time.

Organised enough in fact to stabilise their position when the Dragons raised their game and to see out the lasts 10 minutes without too much drama.

Good marks all round then from Yorkshire Evening Post rugby league writer Peter Smith; see what you think ...
