Friday 23rd October, 19:45, Super League Round 17, Totally Wicked Stadium, St Helens, St Helens versus Leeds Rhinos Match Preview

High-flying St Helens are on a nine-game winning streak in the league which has seen them establish themselves as the leading force. Leeds, on the other hand, lost in the league last time out, going down 32-6 to Warrington, but that was a completely different side to the one that will likely play here. The Rhinos are also, of course, the new Challenge Cup holders following a 17-16 victory over Salford.
