How do you fall so far, so fast? After filling the trophy cabinet with all the silverware last season, it looks as though Leeds might not even make the Top 8. New Balance Wholesale Uk . Results in the Premier League seem to have been mirrored in the Super League and Leeds losses have looked like those of Chelsea last autumn. Whats gone wrong?A colleague has suggested that last year was the anomaly because Leeds struggled in the four seasons prior to 2015, finishing sixth, third, fifth and fifth. Perhaps they were just very luck in 2015.One thing is certain: their attack is nowhere near as good as it was in 2015. Theyve scored less than half the number of tries than they did in the opening 10 rounds of last season.Why? Finishing opportunities and accuracyWell, it isnt due to a lack of field position. Most tries in rugby league are scored when a team get close to their opponents tryline (ie inside their opponents 20-metre zone). Comparison showing tries scored in 2015 and in 2016 after round 10 This year, Leeds have spent more time inside that area but seem to have forgotten how to score.After round 10 in 2015, Leeds had 260 play-the-balls in the oppositions 20-metre zone and had scored 32 tries.Fast forward to round 10 in 2016, and Leeds have had 320 play-the-balls in the 20-metre zone but have scored only 19 tries.In 2015, many of Leeds best tries came from some brilliant offloads. They still offload the ball as much but they have not been as effective.Leeds skill level seems to be a bit below the superb standard they set last year as theyve made significantly more handling errors in 2016.The opposition also know what is coming, so when Leeds do create that second-phase play, teams are ready for them.Personnel changesPersonnel changes have obviously had an impact, but I dont think you can blame their dip in form solely on the loss of experienced players. Jamie Peacock had the knack of getting the pass away to create space outwide That said, the absence of Kevin Sinfields goal-kicking may have cost them a victory or two this season.The Rhinos have lost five games in which they have scored the same number of tries as their opponents and their main goal-kicker, Liam Sutcliffe, has been successful in just over 60% of his goals.Zak Hardaker has just four successes from eight attempts and while Jordan Lilley has kicked well, he has spent less time on the field than the other two.Jamie Peacock did make metres for Leeds when he ran the ball, but they have other big forwards who can do that.What JP did better than his replacements was provide an accurate and well-timed pass that helped to create space out wide. Leeds are still waiting to see what Beau Falloon can do at hooker They managed to cover the injury to Paul Aiton at the end of last season, but a good hooker is essential to a good team and Leeds are still waiting to see what Beau Falloon can do.Without Tom Briscoe and Ryan Hall, they dont look as scary on kick returns, which are a vital aspect of the game.Hardaker isnt playing at the level that he did 12 months ago and they now look like a team under pressure, rather than a relaxed one. They could even be trying too hard.Training ground impactThe flooding of their training ground in December has probably had a bigger impact than I first imagined as their skill last year came as a result of the time and effort that they put into passing the ball more.Without a regular pitch to practice on theyve wasted time moving from one temporary pitch to another and its shown. In a way, they have an unfair advantage over several other sides who dont have the luxury of the training base that Leeds use.It looks like it will be several weeks before they return but they cannot wait that long until the start picking up the wins. Returning star Robert Lui inspired Salford City Red Devils to a 14-10 win over fading Super League champions Leeds Rhinos. Time is nowThere are many reasons why Leeds find themselves one place off the bottom of the table, but not many games for them to do something about it.By my reckoning, they need to win nine of their next 13 games, which wont be easy as six of the next seven are against teams already in the Top 8. However, as Hull showed when Jamie Shaul scored his try on Good Friday, things can turn around very quickly in sport.If ever there was a game to kick-start 2016, its at home to a Hull side that have won their past five matches on the bounce.Can Leeds get back to winning ways against Hull FC?

Scott Flory has been elected president, Jay McNeil will serve as first vice-president and Marwan Hage of the Ottawa Redblacks will serve as second vice-president, the CFLPA said Monday in a statement. Flory succeeds Mike Morreale as president. The 2014-15 executive committee also includes third vice-president Jeff Keeping of the Toronto Argonauts and treasurer Brian Ramsay of the Edmonton Eskimos. The CFLPA is set to hold talks with the league April 10-11. "This CBA negotiation, coinciding as it does with the start of the leagues new five-year deal with TSN, is a perfect time to revisit some of the past revenue concessions made by the CFL players and negotiate a deal that is fair and reasonable for both the players and the league," Flory said. Player health and safety issues, career transitioning and pension improvements are also expected to be discussed. The leagues current collective bargaining agreement with the players expires May 30. Flory said he is expectting changes going forward. New Balance Sale Outlet Uk. . "Our members have worked hard to provide high-calibre entertainment on the field, as well as a strong CFL presence in their communities, both of which have contributed significantly to the success of the league," he said. "While the CFLPA agrees that we must remain sensible and smart about our business, the burden of financial responsibility is not one that can or should be borne solely by the players. "While we want to continue to play the game that we love, we will not play the 2014 season under the terms of the current CBA." In a release earlier in the month, commissioner Mark Cohon said labour negotiations will be kept private. "Out of respect for this important process, and for our players, I never discuss negotiations in the media or in public," Cohon said. "We are committed to working towards a fair and reasonable agreement with our players. We want to be fair to them and keep our league on the path to being strong as well as stable." The 2014 season is slated to begin June 26 with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers home to the Toronto Argonauts. ' ' '
