Leeds Rhinos Women name squad to face Wakefield Trinity
Leeds Rhinos Women will play local rivals Wakefield Trinity Ladies this Sunday in the Betfred Women’s Super League and fans can watch the game live on the RFL’s Twitch, kick off 12pm.
Rhinos Assistant Coaches David and Anthony Gibbons have overseen a winning start to the season for the defending Super League champions and they will be aiming to extend their run to four games.
Keara Bennett, who had shoulder surgery last year, is named in the squad for the first time and Sam Hulme returns to the 19 after missing the game against Bradford last week. Adaoha Akwiwu, who was forced from the field with injury last week is ruled out for the game.
If Fran Goldthorp, who scored four tries in the Challenge Cup win against Bradford, continues her scoring run she could be set to reach a significant career milestone, as she needs just 10 points to reach 50 points in the league.
There are also some more big career achievements in the reach for more Rhinos players. Rhinos captain Courtney Winfield-Hill needs eight goals to reach 100 Super League goals and ten points to reach 400 career points. Sophie Robinson, who has scored in the last three games, needs 12 points to reach 100 career points.
Chloe Kerrigan needs two points to reach 50 career points and Elle Frain needs 10 points to reach 50 career points.
