THEY HAVE won two from two in Women’s Super League, but full-back Charlotte Booth insists Leeds Rhinos can – and need to – improve.

The newly-formed team won 20-14 at Wigan Warriors in round two, after opening their campaign with a 32-16 success at champions Bradford Bulls.

They are one of three unbeaten teams, along with St Helens and Castleford Tigers, but Booth stressed: “There’ll be no resting on laurels.”

A try scorer at Wigan, she said: “We’ve had two good wins, but we’ve still got more to give. I don’t think we have fully got out of third gear yet. There’s definitely more to show.”

Rhinos face Featherstone Rovers a week today in a rearranged fixture. After that they travel to St Helens on Sunday, May 20 and begin their home campaign against Tigers a week later. Booth added: “We are happy with two wins from two. We wanted to start strongly and definitely send a message to the likes of Bradford and Wigan. Castleford beat us in a friendly early doors and that, if anything, did us some good. It showed what we need to work on and opened up some gaps in our game to look at.”

Rhinos women are coached by Grand Final winner Adam Cuthbertson.

Booth said: “It’s so nice having someone who has played the game and can appreciate the struggles you go through. He is very passionate about Leeds and growing the women’s game.”
