THE TEAM NEWS
- Leeds Rhinos produced a solid performance to overcome Hull FC earlier in the week with that result handing the Rhinos a significant boost in their efforts to force their way into the play-off spots.
- Leeds did what was required in the second half of that contest with a quick three-try burst which sealed the victory and they will now look to build on that in this clash where their squad is bolstered with the return of Bodene Thompson and Liam Sutcliffe.
21-man squad: L. Briscoe, T. Briscoe, Donaldson, Dwyer, Gale, Gannon, Handley, Holroyd, Hurrell, Leeming, Martin, Myler, Newman, O’Connor, Oledzki, Prior, Smith, L. Sutcliffe, Tetevano, Thompson, Vuniyayawa
Unavailable: Jack Walker, Alex Sutcliffe, Jack Broadbent, Rob Lui, Alex Mellor
- Warrington Wolves made a successful return to action thanks to grinding out a win against Wigan Warriors earlier in the week and that also helped them put their loss to Leeds Rhinos in their previous contest firmly behind them.
- The Wolves will now have their sights set on closing down the top two and while their defensive efforts have largely caught the eye of late, the inclusion of George Williams to make his debut will be surely see Warrington ask more questions with ball in hand too.
21-man squad: Akauola, Ashton, Austin, Charnley, D. Clark, Cooper, Currie, Davis, Doro, Hill, Hughes, King, Lineham, Longstaff, Mamo, Mulhern, Ratchford, Thewlis, Walker, Williams, Wrench
Unavailable: Gareth Widdop, Jason Clark, Joe Philbin
Questionable: Matty Ashton, Josh Thewlis
Leeds Rhinos look to have put their early season woes behind them and
while they still have plenty of improvements to make, they now know
that a place in the top six is well within their grasp. They made it
back-to-back wins thanks to a win over Hull FC earlier in the week but
this will be a huge test against Warrington Wolves. They away side come
into this game in third spot, solidifying that position thanks to a win
over rivals Wigan Warriors in their latest contest and they will be full
of confidence after that success. Coupled with what should be a debut
for halfback George Williams, Wire look capable of outperforming the
Rhinos on both sides of the ball and they should prevail in this one.
