Leeds plan to stop Tomkins
Friday 01 June 2012
Brian McDermott, the Leeds coach, is wary of the threat posed by England full-back Sam Tomkins ahead of the Rhinos' Stobart Super League home game with Wigan tonight.
Warriors will go into the match with more than half their forwards missing, but McDermott knows his side still have their work cut out to stop Tomkins. "He is a world-class player and someone who is an incredible talent," McDermott said.
"He has lit up Super League in recent years and while we will be trying to make him look bad on the night, he is someone I like."
