Rhinos To Continue 'Quins Home Horror

Mood Matches Shirt?

By Matthew Horton

After the trip to the South of France a fortnight ago the Rhinos now embark on the second longest away trip of the campaign and a first visit to the Twickenham Stoop since a hard fought 22-16 victory in June 1999.

The Rhinos will be looking to keep up the pressure on St Helens at the top of engage Super League.

We preview the game here.

The Rhinos welcome Jamie Peacock back into the 20 man squad after he missed the Round 6 victory over Salford City Reds at the Headingley Carnegie Stadium last Friday night. The Rhinos will be virtually at full strength, with only Jamie Jones-Buchanan and Mark O'Neill still missing with injury. Nathan "Try Machine" McAvoy and Carl Ablett, who was on loan at London last season, are also in the 20 but I can't see Tony Smith making too many changes. I expect them to be lining up in the Senior Academy earlier on in the afternoon.

The Rhinos 20 man squad is Mathers, Donald, Walker, Senior, Smith, McGuire, Burrow, Bailey, Diskin, Peacock, Lauitiiti, Ellis, Sinfield, Millard, Poching, Feather, Scruton, Ablett, Kirke, McAvoy.

Harlequins meanwhile come into this game on the back of a 64-14 defeat against the Giants last Sunday and they have an ever increasing injury list. Head coach Tony Rea was without 7 of his first team squad at the Galpharm last Sunday and to cap it all Zeb Luisi, Karl Temata and the dangerous Lee Hopkins also joining the injury list, although Hopkins may recover and has been selected in the initial 20 as has Pat Weisner, another absentee last week. Rea is struggling to put a team together and has plucked Duncan James from the dark side of the club and promising youngsters Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook and Mike Worrincey, who spent 2005 on loan at Hull FC, are included.

Harlequins 20-man: Bradley-Qalilawa, Budworth, Clubb, Dorn, Gafa, Hartley, Heckenberg, Hopkins, Leuluai, Lolohea, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Mbu, Mills, Randall, Smith, Tookey, Weisner, Williams, Worrincey, James.

Three 'Quins to watch;




Don't think its going to be a walkover, Leeds have not won an away game against London since the 32-14 win at Griffin Park in May 2003. A 36-36 draw in 2004 and the 32-24 defeat at the Aimé Giral last year.

Matt's Prediction
Harlequins 14 36 Rhinos

If you are travelling down early the Senior Academy kicks off at 2.30pm and this game is being played at Twickenham RFC. It's a 15 minute drive from the Stoop and directions to this game can be found here...

The weather forcast isn't clever so make sure you take your coats as rain is forecast on the day and if your travelling down the M1 beware of the roadworks between Juncions 10A and 6. They are closely controlled by cameras which record your average speed and automatically issue a ticket. And when you get to the ground, apparently there is a huge bar under the East Stand which will be open during the game.

There are just a few more hours to get your predictions in in the tipping competition.
