Toopi & Thackray to Debut
Posted by southstander on August 03 2006 - 15:18:11

Go, Go, Go!

It looks like Clinton Toopi will be thrown in at the 'deep end' when the Rhinos travel to the KC Stadium on friday night looking for a confidence boosting win after last weeks disasterous cup exit.

Toopi and Thackray are both named in an eighteen man squad which doesn't feature either Danny McGuire, who is still injured, or sunday try scorer Willie Poching.

Many Leeds supporters will be wondering whether it is worth making the trip, we speculate here.

Tony Smith has announced his eighteen as;

2. Scott Donald
3. Chev Walker
4. Keith Senior
5. Lee Smith
7. Rob Burrow
8. Ryan Bailey
9. Matt Diskin
10. Jamie Peacock
11. Ali Lauitiiti
12. Gareth Ellis
13. Kevin Sinfield
14. Shane Millard
18. Jamie Jones-Buchanan
27. Ashley Gibson
20. Nick Scruton
22. Ian Kirke
29. Jamie Thackray
30. Clinton Toopi

With either/both Clinton and Jamie Thackray making their Leeds debut, the latter against his former side, and that should prove incentive enough to haul yourself over to Hull. Another draw is the atmosphere and needle between the two sides, and the desperation of the Rhinos players to both make up for both last week, and to get some additional revenge for the defeat in last seasons Cup Final in Cardiff.

The Rhinos have never lost at the KC Stadium, a proud record against a side who target Leeds as one of the sides that they desperately want to beat. This is a make or break game for Leeds. We are on the same points as Hull FC and defeat tomorrow will leave us looking at a third spot finish, a victory will put us in a great position to finish as runners up to Saints.

There is no doubt that the lads will need our full support tomorrow night, we owe it to them to be there.
