The welcome return of Sinfield and Leuluai is tempered by the loss of Kallum Watkins to yet another injury. His place is taken in the side by youngster James Duckworth, another fine emerging Leeds talent.
The nineteen is; Hardaker, Jones-Bishop, Moon, Hall, Burrow, Leuluai, Peacock, Ablett, Sinfield, Delaney, Kirke, Clarkson, Moore, Keinhorst, Singleton, Sutcliffe, Minns, Foster, and Duckworth.
Richard Agar has only good news for his team selection. Both Kirmond and Raleigh have recovered from injury scares and make the squad, and Collis and Tautai are also available after recovering from injuries which kept them out of the first game.
He names his nineteen as; Mathers, Fox, Collis, L Smith, Cockayne, T Smith, Poore, Aiton, Raleigh, Lauitiiti, Kirmond, Washbrook, Amor, Wilkes, Mariano, Trout, Lyne, Wildie, and Tautai.
The Rhinos have won thirty out of thirty-five regular Superleague Rounds against the Wildcats since the start of the competition and as well as last weeks narrow two point win, the Rhinos also picked up a win in the bad tempered Festive Challenge at Headingley, by 40-26.
The bookies have given the Wildcats an eight point start on the coupon. I think that we can win by more than the margin, but then I thought that last when we got through by the skin of our teeth.
Enjoy the game.
