THE TEAM NEWS

LEEDS RHINOS

  • Leeds Rhinos looked set to cause a big upset after leading top of the table Catalans Dragons 16 points at half-time in that encounter but they were blown away in a disappointing second half performance.
  • Not for the first time of late, Leeds were unable to match their efforts in the second period of the game and they allowed 25 unanswered points to succumb to defeat but they will hope to respond here with their squad boosted by the return of Rhyse Martin, Mikolaj Oledzki and Ash Handley.

21-man squad: L. Briscoe, T. Briscoe, Donaldson, Dwyer, Gale, Handley, Holroyd, Hurrell, Leeming, Martin, McLelland, Mellor, Myler, Newman, O’Connor, Oledzki, Prior, Smith, L. Sutcliffe, Vuniyayawa, Walters

Unavailable: Jack Walker, Alex Sutcliffe, Zane Tetevano, Jack Broadbent, Bodene Thompson, Rob Lui

SALFORD RED DEVILS

  • Salford Red Devils made it back-to-back wins by securing an important win over Wakefield Trinity last week and Richard Marshall will be looking for his side to back those efforts up once again as they take on Leeds Rhinos.
  • The Red Devils have still managed just four wins all season in the league but they will believe that another victory here over Leeds could give them a chance of making a play for the top six and their chances should improve with the likes of Dan Sarginson and Lee Mossop back in the fold.

21-man squad: Ackers, Atkin, Burgess, Burke, Costello, Escare, Hingano, Ikahihifo, Inu, Lannon, Livett, Lolohea, Luckley, Mossop, Ormondroyd, Pauli, Roberts, Sarginson, Sio, Wells, Williams

Unavailable: Kevin Brown, Kallum Watkins, James Greenwood, Danny Addy, Declan Patton, Elijah Taylor

THE PREDICTION

Leeds Rhinos were left to rue a poor second half in which they could not live with Catalans Dragons and having blown a 16-point lead in that contest, they have it all to do to get back to winning ways here. That is now back-to-back losses for the Rhinos, both to the Dragons, and they will be desperate to avoid a third straight loss against one of the teams that are on their tails. Salford Red Devils have won their last two and while this will be their toughest assignment of the three games, they will be full of confidence. Both teams will be eager to make a strong start and that could lead to plenty of points with at least 44 likely here.
