Kiwis coach Gary Kemble has delayed the naming of his side for the third test against Great Britain at Wigan on Sunday, keeping pressure on the whole squad.
There was no training yesterday, just a video review then the one-on-ones with players where the attitude brought to the game at Hull was dissected.
It was just bad attitude, the review determined.
The hour-and-a-half bus trip to the game from their Leeds base, the refereeing decisions that went against them, the hostile crowd and other factors against them were dismissed as contributory factors in the 44-0 hiding rather than the primary cause.
Centre Shontayne Hape has a wrist problem after that game and half Thomas Leuluai is still ginger with a corked thigh. Leuluai seems unlikely to play but the other 23 are all available, including Tame Tupou and Epalahame Lauaki who missed the second test.
It seems likely Kemble will recall both along with Storm prop Jeff Lima when he names his side tonight.
Ben Roberts is a good bet at five-eighth given the poor ground-gain from the kicking game at Hull.
Great Britain coach Tony Smith has called Leeds forward Jamie Jones-Buchanan into the 20-man squad he named for the third test yesterday, along with Salford winger David Hodgson and Hull centre Kirk Yeaman who both played against the All Golds.
St Helens duo James Roby and Jon Wilkin are recalled after being left out last week.
Leeds lock Kevin Sinfield and Bradford prop Sam Burgess are those not included.
While the Kiwis struggle for direction, former coach Brian 'Bluey' McClennan has taken over the reins at Leeds Rhinos and rated himself the luckiest coach in the world, having got the job he dreamed of. He has sympathy for Kemble and backed the Kiwis to improve.
"It can be cruel," he said of coaching. "You're always searching for improvement and there are peaks and valleys at times. You get injuries in sport but that's part of the business. You need to find ways to improve. The Kiwi team will do that."
Leeds boss Gary Hetherington has previously said the club had no problem with McClennan continuing to coach the Kiwis. That could happen only if the NZRL administration changes its stance on requiring the coach to reside in New Zealand or if the administration changes.
McClennan's family moves to Leeds next week, including his mum and dad Mike who coached St Helens to a title win in the early'90s.
At the new coach's introduction yesterday, the Rhinos named a team of New Zealanders who have played for the club, going back to wingers Harry Rowe and Joe Lavery who signed on after taking part in the 1907/08 All Golds' tour.
The team is Bert Cooke, Harold Rowe, Richie Blackmore, Craig Innes, Joe Lavery, Tony Kemp, Wally Desmond, George Mann, Trevor Clark, Esene Faimailo, Mark Brooke-Cowden, Gary Mercer, Mike Kuiti; interchange John Gallagher, Morvin Edwards, Kevin Iro, Willie Poching. Coach Dean Bell.
The pressure will be on McClennan to succeed after taking over the full squad that won the Super League title this. No Leeds coach has ever managed to retain a title.
