Saturday 3rd October, 14:30, Challenge Cup Semi-Final, Totally Wicked Stadium, St Helens, Leeds Rhinos versus Wigan Warriors Match Preview

Whilst Wigan thrashed Hull FC in the quarter-finals, Leeds hammered FC’s bitterest rivals Hull KR. Though the Rhinos were on the receiving end of a 34-6 defeat by Catalans Dragons in their last game, that side included seven debutants. Likewise, the Warriors were hit hard by a rampant St Helens side whom inflicted a 42-0 thrashing, but they too had six youngsters making their first appearance in the famous Cherry-and-White.

As expected, it’s much changed for both teams following their midweek defeats with Brad Dwyer, Konrad Hurrell and Cameron Smith all included for Leeds. Only Adam Cuthbertson, Alex Sutcliffe, Jack Walker and Luke Briscoe survive from the Catalans game.

Wigan boss Adrian Lam makes ten changes, but there is no room for new signing Brad Singleton whilst Jack Wells succumbed to a serious knee injury against Saints.
