The bookies have given the home side a ten point start, but with the 'Quins still having a good chance of making tha play-offs, they are a side not to be taken lightly.
Tony Smith has named the same twenty that has lost consecutive games at Wigan and against Wakefield. It is difficult to guess who will be left our of the twenty and Smith will probably keep his side on their toes until shortly before kick-off. I suspect that it will be Scruton, Ablett and Smith who don't make the playing side.
Leeds are still without Matt Diskin and no real cover for the testing hooker position since Gary Hetherington failed to secure a replacement prior to the transfer deadline. We'll just have to muddle through with a combination of Sinfield and Tansey, and hope that Diskin makes it back for the play-offs.
Brian McDermott will, once again, be relishing the chance to get one over on his former mentor. He names a twenty of; Bannister, Gafa, Grayshon, Hill, Hopkins, Lucky Luisi, Mbu, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, McLinden, Orr, Purdham, Randall, Rinaldi, R. Sheriffe, T. Smith, Sykes, Temata, Tootill, Wells, Worrincy. There are a couple of lads in there with some Rhinos Academy experience, the promising Tootill and Mbu may both get a chance to shine.
Three 'Quins to watch;
The Harlequins have lost their last two matches, against Hull FC and Huddersfield, and therefore will be low on confidence themselves. They have twenty points from twenty-one matches, but look more likely to be in the play-offs rather than battling relegation.
We have only lost four times to the London side, in its various guises, since the start on Superleague. Two of those were in Superleague I.
The last time we went to the Stoop we came home with a massive 60-00 victory, thanks to a four try haul from Danny McGuire. Earlier this season we got a much narrower 26-18 win. Expect sundays game to be more like the latter than the former.
I believe that we can get the win, and hopefully start a run that will end in lifting the trophy at Old Trafford. I wouldn't, however, be surprised if we put in a very nervous performance and failed to come away with the points.
The forecast for Sunday is mostly sunny withe a temperature in the late twenties. Has summer finally arrived?
