The shackles are off – Sinfield

Leeds Rhinos skipper Kevin Sinfield says that he and his team mates will go to Warrington with the pressure off as they face the runaway league leaders.

Warrington finished top of the table at the end of the regular season with a record numbers of points scored and the best defence in the competition. Then in the first week of the play offs they destroyed Huddersfield to book a week off and the chance to pick their opponents to get to Old Trafford.

Sinfield commented, "The shackles are off us now ahead of this week. We go there and we know we need to produce our best performance of the season and throw the ball around. If we don't do that then we are likely to get the same medicine that Warrington have been dishing out to everyone else all season. It is a massive game for us, we know we are eighty minutes away from Old Trafford and we are going to give it our all to get there.

"The team are in good spirits. My combination with Danny McGuire is working well at the moment and with Rob coming on off the bench, that gives us a massive attacking weapon plus you have Danny Buderus and Brent Webb producing their best at the moment at well.

"I am sure we will have a huge following at Warrington as well and that will be important. The Rhinos fans outnumbered Huddersfield supporters last week and whilst numerically we might be outnumbered this week, I am certain that we will not be outsung," added Sinfield.
