Leeds Rhinos Director of Rugby Kevin Sinfield has named an unchanged starting line up for tonight’s Betfred Super League Super 8s Qualifiers clash with Salford Reds Devils at Emerald Headingley, kick off 7.45pm.

The only change to the squad from last week’s win at Widnes sees Adam Cuthbertson come onto the bench in place of Josh Walters. Brett Ferres will skipper the side again.

The two sides met on the final day of the regular season when Salford ran out 38-22 winners at the AJ Bell Stadium.  That was Salford’s third victory over Leeds in 43 meetings in the Super League era.

Prior to that game, Leeds had won their last six meetings with Salford including a 20-0 victory at Emerald Headingley in Round Nine at the start of April. The Red Devils’ last win at Emerald Headingley was back on Easter Monday 2009 when Richie Myler crossed for a try for Salford in a 30-20 win.

Tom Briscoe has scored tries in the Rhinos’ last four meetings with Salford (2-1-1-1).

2018 meeting:

Leeds 20, Salford 0 (SLR9, 2/4/18)
