Call this a dispatch from the “water is wet” department.

Kemar Roofe said that Leeds need to improve set piece defending. Really. You don’t say.

Kemar Roofe said:

It might be time where we need to just do something with it. But hopefully we just get a bit better at it. We don’t want to be conceding goals full stop and we have been conceding a bit too many from set-pieces.

It seems like it’s a recurring thing so it is something we need to work on. But that’s what we are going to do this week I suppose, we are going to work on our weaknesses and hopefully we can do that and show that against Wigan.

Perhaps the team can hire a set-piece specialist that will teach them how to defend them this year.

On to the links.
