Smith satisfied with Wolves response

Tony Smith was content with his side’s performance after they defeated Leeds 52-18.

Following defeat to Castleford at Magic Weekend, Smith asked his team to ensure that was their lowest point.

They responded emphatically, moving to the top of Super League with victory over the struggling Rhinos, and Smith said: “It’s a nice way to bounce back.

“We’ve been a little bit off in some areas and I thought we fixed up some of those areas.

“The main one was defence, that was strong tonight. We got back to how we were defending earlier in the season and our kicking game was a lot better.

“But they took some wearing down. They are trying really hard to get themselves out of the position they’re in and it was game on until a bit after half-time.”

A full report and reaction will be in Monday’s League Express.
