That said, it's rarely an easy trip to the Kingston Communications Stadium where we have to take on a side who know that they were delivered two points last weekend kindly giftwrapped by a certain Mr Ganson.
Brett Delaney is back in the nineteen after collapsing through exhaustion (very rock 'n' roll Mr Delaney) and will almost certainly be back in the run-on thirteen. Singleton and Sutcliffe retain their squad places after doing themselves a power of good with great performances against the Warriors in Manchester.
Ward, Peacock, Ablett and Jones-Bishop are all still on the injured bench and likely to be for the forseeable future, so with the exception of Delaney the boss will rely on the same side that he did last week.
Out of a nineteen of; Hardaker, Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, McShane, Jones-Buchanan, Sinfield, Delaney, Bailey, Kirke, Clarkson, Achurch, Moore, Singleton, Vickery, and Sutcliffe; I'd expect that it would be the youngsters who miss out with Delany and Moore taking their places, but I've been known to be wrong.
Peter Gentle welcomes back Westerman and Galea who have both recovered from poorly thumbs and they will take the places of Jason Crookes and Richard Horne, the latter picking up an injury at the Magic Weekend.
If rumours are to be believed then we'll get a look at one of our new players for 2014, Tom Briscoe, who will soon be joining his brother Luke at Headingley.
The full nineteen for FC is; Bowden, T Briscoe, Crooks, Ellis, Galea, Green, Holdsworth, Heremaia, Houghton, Johnson, Lineham, Lynch, McDonnell, O'Meley, Pitts, Watts, Westerman, Whiting, and Yeaman.
FC have played the Rhinos on thirty four occasions in the regular rounds of Superleague since 1996. The Rhinos have won on twenty-four occasions with the Airlie Birds picking up nine wins and one game being played out as a draw. The Rhinos last won in Hull two seasons ago with a 32-18 victory but lost 34-20 last season.
It's one of those games where you just never know.
The bookies have only given the home side a two point start on the coupon and SKY have picked the game in the hope that it will serve up classic Leeds v. FC fayre. I think that the bookies have based their decision on the last three weeks rather than what went in the two months before and I'd hope that any return to form would mean a larger winning margin.
The forecast for Friday is pretty night, topping out the day with temperatures in the late teens and only a small chance of rain. The conditions should be right for a classic.
Enjoy the game.
