Preview

A huge game completes Friday’s action with St Helens hosting Challenge Cup winners Leeds who can now turn their attention back to achieving a top-four finish as Saints aim for a 10th successive win in Super League.

Saints make one change from the side that beat Wakefield with James Graham replacing youngster Jake Wingfield.

The Rhinos have four games in the space of 10 days which means Richard Agar has named a much-changed squad, with just seven members of their Challenge Cup Final team included.

Prediction

Wow, what a game this could be! Saints have been impeccable in the league since the restart and embarrassingly nilled the Rhinos at Headingley as part of their nine-game winning run. Leeds look back to their best under Richard Agar and will be buoyant following their cup success at the weekend but might fall short of stopping Saints claiming a 10th win on the bounce in the League.
