Academy Target a 'Pick-Me-Up'

The Rhinos play their final home game of the grading phase as they take on Halifax, in a game which has been moved to Stanningley ARLFC as Headingley is unavailable.

The Rhinos will be looking to bounce back from the disappointing result at Wilderspool last weekend.

The Rhinos were hit by injury problems to Lee Smith, Ashley Gibson and Luke Stenchion before last weekends game and of the three only Stenchion is in contention to make a comeback into the side this weekend. Chaz I'Anson is also drafted into the squad as the Rhinos look for the win which should seal their place in the Championship section for the forthcoming season. John Gallagher, helped off with a knee injury at Wilderspool on the weekend, has recovered and he should take his place int he starting line up and dependent on First Grade call ups, Liam Botham may drop back in order to obtain some game time.

I expect the Rhinos squad to be, Gordon, Williams, Brown, Gardner, Buttery, I'Anson C, Murrell, Gallagher, Stenchion, I'Anson J, Tootill, Scruton, Golden, Botham, Walsh, Ablett, Tansey, Hart, Burgess, Ratu.

Halifax have only played one game this season, a resounding 50-10 victory at local rivals Keighley Cougars before last weeks game against St Helens fell victim to the adverse weather conditions. Since that game Jodie Sheriffe and Scott Law have been given their chance in First Grade and an injury crisis at the Shay may have an impact on the team they can pick.

The 'Fax squad for the Keighley game was Attwood, Barker, Boothroyd, Corcoran, Dobbs. Fawcett, Garnett, Greenwood. Hirst, Law, O'Brien, Sawyer, St Hilaire, Sheriffe, Simeunovich, Silcox, Walker.

Last season the Rhinos completed the double over Halifax, Lee Smith grabbing the try of the season in a 30-16 victory at Headingley after a four try salvo from Tommy Gallagher helped the Rhinos to a 44-22 victory at the Shay.

This game as mentioned, is to be played at Stanningley ARLFC. Admission if £2 of for adults and free for concessions. All proceeds to Stanningley ARLFC for agreeing to stage the game at short notice. If you are in the area, get down and support the lads and the excellent bar facility that is on hand.

Don't forget 'A Question of League' next Monday (7th March).
