When the Leeds go Marching In

Are you the video ref?

167 days after that glorious night at Old Trafford, the Rhinos travel to Knowsley Road to take on St Helens in the first meeting between the two clubs since the amazing night back in October.

We preview the game here...

If you were a Rhinos fan you couldn't have asked for a better Easter as Leeds picked up the 4 points that were on offer in two thrilling displays of rugby league. Coach McClennan though thinks his team still have plenty left in the tank and can improve on those displays. Leeds will be without Lee Smith and Carl Ablett from the team which took to the field on Monday as both have picked up knocks. Kylie Leuluai will return after his knock against Bradford and possibly Simon Worrall who will get the nod on the bench in place of Ablett.

Saints meanwhile have been hit by injuries, Nick Fozzard is done for the year after picking up a knee injury. Keiron Cunningham is out for a couple of months with a muscle tear and nobody knows when Paul Sculthorpe will put a run of three matches together. It's not all bad news for the Saints as Jason Cayless is named for the first time this season after having surgery in the close season. A mixed easter for the Saints, a comprehensive victory on the Friday was followed by defeat to Huddersfield on the Monday.

Three Saints to watch;

The Rhinos won three of the four meetings between the sides last season. In the league the Rhinos won 38-19 at Headingley Carnegie in April before completing the double with a 22-10 win a Knowsley Road in July. The teams then met twice in the play-offs, Saints registering their only win with a 10-08 victory before the Rhinos turned the tables two weeks later at Old Trafford. It is interesing to note though, in 4 second halves against the Rhinos last season, Saints only came up with two points. Matty Smith with a penalty in the play off game at Knowsley Road that eventually won the game for St Helens.

Over on the RedVee forums, the Saints fans are really worried about this game tonight and I have to agree with them. When it was announced the Wilkin was free to play after his trip to the disciplinary on Wednesday night you'd have thought the Messiah had returned. With the Leeds defence on top form, there is really only one possible outcome.

Southstander.com Prediction
St Helens 10 28 Rhinos

One thing to be wary of though is the wounded animal, Saints were not happy at losing at Huddersfield on Monday and expect them to come out and throw the kicthen sink at the Rhinos.

The bookies have given Saints a 4 point start on the coupon, which might not be enough tonight.

The weather looks to be a little on the damp side but there is sufficent cover for the Rhinos fans in the Eddington End of the ground.

The reserve game has been called off between the two sides, apparently the pitch is very heavy and it's raining heavily in St Helens as I write this. It may well turn into a slugfest tonight.

Don't forget to get your predictions in here.
