Rhinos skipper Kevin Sinfield is looking forward to taking on Wigan at Headingley this Friday night and thinks it is the ideal test for the Rhinos following their Cup exit. All three clashes between the Rhinos and Wigan last season were sensational and with Mike Gregory's men having picked up a big win in France this weekend it will be a tough challenge for the Rhinos but one their captain believes will lift them after the loss at Knowsley Road. "We are bitterly disappointed to have lost on Saturday but there is nothing we can do about that result now, we have to work hard and get back to our job for next week. "Wigan are a quality outfit and we had some great games last year but it is good that we are going back to Headingley, it will have been a month since our last home game on Friday, and hopefully we can get back to the standards we have set ourselves." The game kicks off at 8pm and the Rhinos are expecting a bumper crowd, supporters are urged to purchase their tickets before the day of the game to ease congestion at the turnstiles for the first Friday night game of the season.
