THE TEAM NEWS

LEEDS RHINOS

Head Coach: Richard Agar

Squad: L. Briscoe, Cuthbertson, Donaldson, Dwyer, Ferres, Handley, Hurrell, Jones-Buchanan, Lui, Lunt, Martin, Merrin, Myler, Newman, Oledzki, Seumanufagai, Smith, L. Sutcliffe, Walker

Unavailable: Dom Crosby, Carl Ablett, Tom Briscoe, Stevie Ward, Nathaniel Peteru

  • Leeds all-but retained their Super League status as they proved too good for London in their relegation four-pointer last week and the Rhinos can just about start planning for next season but will want to end on a high with two home games to finish their year.
  • Brad Singleton will be available for selection after completing a two-game ban last week but the Leeds prop has been unable to earn his place back in the 19-man squad with that suspension proving costly.
  • Richard Agar has named an unchanged 19-man squad this week after a solid display over London and he could opt to go with the same 17 although Shaun Lunt and Jamie Jones-Buchanan will be hoping to force their way into the side.

SALFORD RED DEVILS

Head Coach: Ian Watson

Squad: Bibby, Burke, Dudson, Evalds, Flanagan, Griffin, Hastings, Inu, J. Johnson, Jones, Lolohea, Lussick, McCarthy, Mossop, Sio, Tomkins, Walker, Welham, Wood

Unavailable: Ed Chamberlain

  • Salford continued their brilliant run of form as they made it six wins in a row with a comfortable win over play-off rivals Warrington and will travel to Headingley full of confidence as they attempt to keep their winning streak going.
  • Salford head coach Ian Watson has plenty of options at his disposal but may stick with the same team that defeated Warrington although he has decided to bring in two new faces into his 19-man squad.
  • George Griffin is named and could make his long-awaited return from injury if selected whilst Josh Wood is also named in the 19 but there is no place for Ben Nakubuwai and Ryan Lannon who are left out having not featured in the matchday 17 last week.

THE PREDICTION

Salford continue to loom as a dark horse for the Grand Final after they claimed their sixth win in a row when beating Warrington last week. They head to Leeds who may play with some freedom now they are all-but safe but Salford are the form team of the competition and can claim another victory. Tui Lolohea will be keen to show his parent club what they are missing and his partnership with Jackson Hastings in the halves will be key if Salford are to continue their winning run.
