Singleton targets Rhinos revival

Leeds Rhinos prop forward Brad Singleton says he is eager to recapture full fitness and help his side finish the Super League season in good form.

The Rhinos have endured a tough campaign following last year's Grand Final and are in direct danger of missing out on the top eight.

But under new director of rugby Kevin Sinfield, the Rhinos appear ready to turn a corner and, after featuring in Friday's draw against Wakefield, Singleton says he is desperate to play a key role in the middle of the park.

"I think at the start of the year I went all right. I played big minutes and then I had those games out, which was hard to watch. I only had one training session before the Wigan game a couple of weeks ago, so my fitness probably wasn't great," said the Rhinos prop.

"But at the end of the day I will just do what I can. I need to be selfless, if people want me to do 40 tackles I'll do 40 tackles. It is all about effort with my game and hopefully that shows when I am out there on the pitch."

The Rhinos looked on course for victory against Wakefield, but a controversial video refereeing decision handed Trinity a vital score in the closing stages of the game.

Despite having to settle for a draw, Singleton is positive about the future.

"We've broken the losing run, but we only got one point and we're not any safer than we were," he said.

"We just have to get these next two wins and see where it takes us. We have to keep the same attitude in defence and be a bit smarter in attack and see what happens."

The Rhinos are 8.00 to win the Challenge Cup this season, with Warrington Wolves 1.44 and St Helens 1213.00.
