Ali Lauiti'iti is a welcome return to the side after missing last weeks superb Rhinos performance at the KC Stadium. Peacock came through last week and is fit enough to remain in the nineteen for the 'big one' so with just Donald, Eastwood and Watkins out injured the Rhinos are at their strongest all season.
We have witnessed a massive improvement in the Rhinos over the last month and hopefully the re-habilitation will continue on saturday night in front of the SKY TV cameras. Sinfield, Burrow, McGuire, Ablett and Senior are all hitting the straps as we try and climb as high as we can in the table to give ourselves a realistic shot at a fourth title.
Bluey has named his nineteen for the trip to Knowsley Road as; Webb, Delaney, Senior, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Buderus, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Lauiti'iti, Sinfield, Diskin, Bailey, Kirke, Ablett, Burgess, Ambler, and Smith.
'Harry' is having a bit of an injury crisis of his own with Wilkin, Gidley and Dean all missing. He does welcome back Paul Wellens, a player with a Jekyll & Hyde history against the Rhinos, and Francis Meli should also return.
Expect the Rhinos to sledge for all they are worth and try and get in the ears of Gardner, Wellens and Graham. Expect some sensational fireworks from some massive hit-ups across the pitch.
Potters ninteen is; Wellens, Gardner, Meli, Pryce, Eastmond, Fozzard, Cunningham, Graham, Puletua, Flannery, Roby, Hargreaves, Moore, Clough, Ashurst, Wheeler, Dixon, Fa'asavalu, and Foster.
Three Saints to watch;
This could potentially be our last ever visit to Knowsley Road, but who'd bet against either a Challenge Cup or play-off meeting between the two most successful sides of recent years.
Leeds are unbeaten since the trip to Wigan a month ago while Saints unbeaten run is one game less after they lost to the same opposition in the Easter Monday derby. It is a mouthwatering prospect and probably a bit too tight to call.
It is over two years since the Rhinos won at Knowsley Road with a narrow 14-10 win and how sweet would it be to win on our last ever visit there?
Leeds have won the last two meetings between the sides with the Saints last victory coming in the 18-22 cup win at Headingley which ended our Challenge Cup campaign last year.
I've gone for a Rhinos loss, with a heavy heart, in the hope that I an very badly wrong. I do think that it will be a really close game and the bookies have given the Rhinos a two point start on the handicap.
We are in for a cracking weekend weather wise and saturday should see perfect conditions for a great open game.
Enjoy the game and keep everything crossed for a Rhinos win.
