Due to time constraints this preview is actually being written a lot earlier
then normal, hence my chance to gauge who will and will not be playing is
rather restricted. Leeds though are waiting on fitness tests on some
players, Carl Ablett will definitely be one of these after he spent time on
the bench last week after coming off with what looked like and knee injury.
Francis Cummins may return after missing last weeks game with a calf strain.|
Its a question now of which Rhinos team will turn up, so impressive at
Featherstone the week before and then so disappointing last week. Stuart
Wilkinson will be doing his utmost to ensure that there will not be a repeat
of the performance last week.
Predicted squad Gordon, Cummins, Gibson, Morton, Williams, Gardner, Murrell,
Gallagher, Burgess, Stenchion, J I'Anson, Golden., Buttery, Ablett, Tansey,
Haley, Townend, C I'Anson, Hart, Walsh.

quick return after his try scoring appearance in the First Team the other
