Wednesday 30th September, 18:00, Super League Round 14, Emerald Headingley Stadium, Leeds, Leeds Rhinos versus Catalans Dragons Match Preview

With a Challenge Cup semi-final on the horizon, Leeds have league business to do first against a Catalans side that have lost their last three games in league and cup. The Dragons’ 30-16 loss to Warrington last weekend saw them slip further off the pace of the top four which includes their opponents Leeds who occupy the last play-off spot.

As many as 15 changes have been made by Leeds boss Richard Agar with only Adam Cuthbertson and Tom Briscoe retaining their place from the 17 that thrashed Hull KR. Eight players who have yet to play for the Rhinos are included with loaned Batley forward James Harrison one of those.
