THERE were some very angry guys in our dressing room after this first match.
We came to Headingley looking to do a job, and we've come away with nothing.
But at least we know exactly where we went wrong - and that we are in a position to put it right.
Defensively, we were right up to the mark and the character we displayed in keeping Leeds out the way we did was, at times, exceptional.
Our fitness is also good and is proof that the hard work we put in to pre-season training is paying off.
But, obviously, it's our offence that needs the fine-tuning.
We conceded far too much possession to put Leeds under concerted pressure and that cost us in the end.
Our completion rate in this game was about 40%, and how can you expect to beat a team like Leeds with a stat like that.
Usually you like to be around the 80% mark, so it makes you wonder what we could have achieved had we been up around that!
And in time, and when we get more games under our belt, that figure will be reached.
We'll definitely be working on that area of our game in the next few weeks.
We have spent a fair amount of time on our defence, and you can see that it's reaping its reward. So, when we turn more of our attention to attack, it should be a totally different story - and I'm sure that will be the case for me.
Personally, I was disappointed with the way I played.
There are still areas I need to work on, and I'll be re-doubling my efforts to put that right.
But there were some excellent individual performances.
James Evans had a great game, strong in attack and physical in defence.
And I was delighted when he went over for his try.
My half-back partner, Chris Thorman, had a real leader's game.
Leeds put his left-hand side of defence under a lot of pressure, but he handled it well and responded by putting on some smart plays.
Stephen Wild was another to put in a top game.
He had to find a fifth wind to keep putting in the work and was immense.
So, overall, there were many positives to take from the game.
But, as far as I'm concerned, being a good loser isn't good enough.
The aim now is to work hard again and focus on winning.
