McDermott: Leeds respect Warrington

Leeds Rhinos head coach Brian McDermott insists that everyone at the club has the utmost respect for tonight’s opponents Warrington Wolves, and says the Rhinos will have to be on top form tonight.

Leeds head across the M62 to Warrington with their unbeaten start to Super League XX still in tact, and will be looking to maintain it against a Wolves side who has lost just one of their opening four matches of the season.

And McDermott admits that the Rhinos are full of respect for Warrington, having been on the receiving end of some beatings from the Wolves in recent years.

“It hasn’t been our best hunting ground and they are a good team,” McDermott told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“We have a huge amount of respect for Warrington in our camp.

“We know what they can do and we’ve been on the end of some of their hot days.

“That’s something you’ve got to be aware of when you play Warrington, the hot days they have when they come out of the blocks and pretty much anything and everything goes well for them.”
