Leeds welcome Catalans to Headingley on Friday night looking to continue their fine recent form which has seen them win four games on the spin. However, the Dragons have won their last seven Super League matches and will want to extend their lead at the top of the table.
The Rhinos make four changes to the squad that impressively beat Warrington last time out with Luke Gale, Richie Myler, Cameron Smith and King Vuniyayawa all returning to the side. Jack Broadbent, Callum McLelland, Liam Tindall and Morgan Gannon are the players who drop out.
Catalans have made three changes from the squad that convincingly beat Huddersfield in their last outing with Alrix Da Costa, Joel Tomkins and Jordan Dezaria all included. Gil Dudson misses out through suspension whilst Lambert Belmas and Cesart Rouge also drop out.
Catalans by four points.
