Leeds Rhinos head coach Brain McClennan was, like most people involved in rugby league, shocked by his sides loss to the Salford City Reds at the Headingley Carnegie for the first time in 32 years, but is confident that the Rhinos will be back.


"At times it seemed we couldn't win a trick," he bemoaned, before trying to look for positives.


He said: "It wasn't our worst performance in my time here and, as hard as it is to take, if we handle this right it can be a good thing because you find out a lot about people in adversity.


"As a club we have had a lot of success, winning back-to-back championships, but right now our confidence is down and there is a bit of indecision.


"Everyone gets very upset, almost to the point of depression when we don't do well because expectations are so high among the players - almost too much at times.


"We have to keep believing in ourselves and our systems. We will come out of this and we will come out of it stronger."


Of the opposition, McClennan added: "All credit to them. They are full of confidence at the moment and scored some good tries from skilful kicks and a couple of interceptions."


Next match: Huddersfield Giants | Saturday 18th April, Galpharm Stadium
