Warrington travels to Leeds on Friday night, hoping for a better result than last weekend when they went down 18-8 to Wakefield. Leeds, meanwhile, come into this fixture on the back of a 22-8 victory over Salford, which lifted the Rhinos into fifth, just above Warrington on points difference.
Leeds boss Richard Agar makes two changes to his 21-man squad with new on-loan signing Joe Greenwood expected to make his debut in place of the injured Lee Sutcliffe. Rhyse Martin returns as Rhys Evans drops out in Agar’s only other change. Warrington head coach Steve Price welcomes back captain Chris Hill following his suspension as Matty Ashton makes way with a hamstring injury.
Last time they met
The last time the two sides met was September 2019, when the Rhinos posted a 26-4 victory over the Wolves. Prior to that, Warrington had won their last three league and cup games against Leeds.
Though Warrington looked far from at their best against Wakefield in round four, the return of Chris Hill may spur them to victory here, especially as halfback marquee Gareth Widdop starts to exert his influence over the Wolves’ side. Plus, Warrington’s size upfront may be too much for a lightweight Rhinos pack, that being mentioned the Leeds Rhinos are showing great signs of gelling and are playing this one at home, we will dare to write three in a row for Leeds.
Leeds Rhinos for the win.
