THE TEAM NEWS

LEEDS RHINOS

Head Coach: Richard Agar

Squad: Albert, T. Briscoe, Cuthbertson, Donaldson, Dwyer, Ferres, Handley, Hurrell, Lolohea, Merrin, Myler, Newman, Oledzki, Seumanufagai, Singleton, Smith, L. Sutcliffe, Walker, Watkins

Unavailable: Dom Crosby, Stevie Ward, Carl Ablett, Jamie Jones-Buchanan, Nathaniel Peteru, Matt Parcell

  • Leeds claimed a valuable victory as the Rhinos were able to keep Wakefield scoreless to complete their second win in a row but they still remain just two points off the foot of the table.

  • The Rhinos will be hoping to have fullback Jack Walker back in the side after he was not risked last week with a tweaked hamstring but he looks set to come straight back into the side.

  • Wellington Albert comes back into the 19-man squad in place of Ashton Golding in the only change to last week’s squad as interim head coach Richard Agar attempts to guide his side to a third consecutive victory.

WIGAN WARRIORS

Head Coach: Adrian Lam

Squad: Bullock, Burgess, Byrne, Clubb, Escaré, Farrell, Gildart, Hankinson, Isa, Leuluai, Marshall, Navarrete, O’Loughlin, Partington, Powell, Sammut, Sarginson, Smithies, Williams

Unavailable: Gabe Hamlin, Dom Manfredi, Tom Davies, Joe Greenwood, Zak Hardaker, Ben Flower, Taulima Tautai

  • Wigan claimed a precious win as Sam Powell's superb drop goal from over 40 metres out edged his side to a win over Hull KR but now travel to Headingley to face Leeds as they look to make it back-to-back wins.

  • The Warriors lost Zak Hardaker to a hamstring strain during last week's game and despite looking like he had a chance of featuring against his former team, he has not been named in the 19-man squad.

  • Ben Flower is out with a back problem, Taulima Tautai is dropped after appearing in court on a drink-driving charge whilst Jake Shorrocks is also out with Liam Byrne, Jarrod Sammut, Romain Navarrete and Morgan Escaré coming into the squad.

THE PREDICTION

Leeds won back-to-back league games for the first time this season when seeing off Wakefield last week and will now be looking to make it three in a row. Wigan edged their game with Hull KR and although this will be tight, they can begin to look up rather than down if they can win again. That task has been made tougher with the loss of Zak Hardaker and with Leeds set to be able to name their first-choice fullback in Jack Walker, that could be enough for the Rhinos to claim a third consecutive win.
