The Rhinos make two changes to the line up from Cougar Park. Danny Williams
comes in for Matt Gardner, who drops to the bench and John Gallagher starts
at scrum half in place of Jordan Tansey who is left out of the 17. Francis
Cummins continues his recovery from injury and Gareth Morton gets another
chance now his commitments with Borders are complete. Ashley Gibson, Jamie
I'Anson and Danny Williams all featured in the Under 18's victory at Hull KR
last Friday night, as does Joe Walsh who gets a spot on the bench in place
of Dave Tootill, now on loan at Oldham. |
The Rhinos line up is: 1. Lee Smith; 2. Danny Williams, 3. Gareth Morton, 4.
Ashley Gibson, 5. Francis Cummins; 6. Scott Murrell, 7. John Gallagher; 8.
Luke Burgess, 9. Jamie I'Anson, 10. Luke Stenchion, 11. Jason Golden, 12.
Chris Buttery, 13. Carl Ablett; 14. Iain Gordon, 15. Matt Gardner, 16. Jason
Hart, 17. Joe Walsh
No offence to the opposition but Featherstone are probably one of the poorer
sides in the Division. They had the worst record in the grading phase after
defeats to Widnes (2-64), Wigan (0-44), Huddersfield (16-42) and Bradford
(0-64) then started the league phase with defeat against Castleford (24-37)
before gaining a confidence boosting victory at Doncaster (36-10) last week.
Proof the Rhinos can ill afford to treat any opposition in this division
with no respect this season.
The game is at the Lionheart Stadium and kicks off at 7.30pm If you are in
the area get down and cheer the lads on, they do appreciate the support.
Bar Olympics tickets available from me pre and post game as well.....
