Ratu looking to build on experience

Young centre Michael Ratu is hoping to build on the experience he has gained in recent weeks in the remainder of the season.

The young academy centre made his first start for the Rhinos last week at Wigan and he has singled out veteran Keith Senior has a major guiding factor in his development in the first team.

"Keith has been great for me. He is always there to give advice and a helpful word. He is the best in my position in the world and having someone like that in the same squad as me is briliant," added Ratu.

The Rochdale-born player is in the 19 man squad for the clash with Warrington on Saturday as Leeds take on former boss Tony Smith however he says that Leeds will not get caught up in the occasion. "Tony was always about focusing on the game and taking each game at a time when he was here so we won’t be doing anything different than that on Saturday, he has got Warrington going well so we know we are in for a tough match," added Ratu.
