Leeds face Castleford in rearranged fixture

Leeds Rhinos face Castleford Tigers in their rearranged fixture at Headingley.

The match was supposed to take place a few weeks ago, but the Tigers were forced to rearrange after positive tests at the club, leaving Hull FC to step in at the last minute.

The Rhinos were much rotated against St Helens on Friday, and fell to a 40-8 defeat.

Castleford picked up only their second win since lockdown on Thursday, as they beat Hull KR.

The match kicks off at 7.45pm and the referee will be Tom Grant.
