Leeds Rhinos need to make the most of experience - Hall

Ryan Hall

Leeds Rhinos winger Ryan Hall is confident his side can make their big-game experience count in their play-off eliminator against Wakefield.

The Rhinos take on the Wildcats at Headingley on Saturday.

Hall, 24, told BBC Radio Leeds: "The fact that we've got so much experience in this type of game will help us out when we've got our backs to the wall.

"We know Wakefield are going to come here and give us a really good game but we're excited about that."

He added: "They've fought really hard to make the play-offs by winning seven games on the bounce and last time we played them they beat us quite comfortably."

Richard Agar's side have won their last seven matches to enter the play-offs as the in-form team, while Leeds fell to a disappointing 48-24 defeat at neighbours Huddersfield on Sunday to end their regular season with a whimper.

Hall, who was named in the Super League dream team on Monday, expressed his relief that the performance came when it did and not in the play-offs.

"We're not happy with it but I'm glad it came last week and not this week or it would be curtains for us," he continued.

"Everyday is a learning curve and that was a bit of a harsher one than others."
