Rhinos looking to carry on Super League affairs after Melbourne disappointment


Leeds Rhinos are looking to get back to normality after coming from Australia in an attempt to win the World Club Challenge.

They travel to Widnes Vikings, a team many have fancied for the drop. However, despite two defeats from three games, they have started the season playing good rugby league and hope to pull away from any danger early.

The Rhinos come into the game having won their first two games of the season against Warrington Wolves and Hull KR.

Widnes make three changes from their defeat to Warrington with Ted Chapelhow, Stanton Albert and Wellington Albert coming into the squad, replacing the suspended Chris Houston as well as Olly Ashall-Bott and Brad Walker.

Leeds on the other hand make three enforced changes to the squad that was defeated Down Under with Ashton Golding, Mitch Garbutt, Josh Walters all come into the squad in place of Jack Walker, Adam Cuthbertson and Stevie Ward, who are all injured.

The match will kick off at 3pm and the referee will be Robert Hicks.
