Leeds Rhinos Women clash against St Helens live on Saturday
Leeds Rhinos Women will play St Helens Women in the semi-final of the Betfred Women’s Challenge Cup semi-final this Saturday at the LNER Stadium in York, kick off 3pm.
The game will be streamed by BBC Sport on Red Button and iplayer – and highlights to be shown on Sky Sports the following Monday.
The teams faced each other in the 2019 semi final when Caitlin Beevers scored a memorable try to secure her team’s place in the Challenge Cup Final, but it will be the first time the teams – who have both made unbeaten starts to the season – have played each other in 2021 .
Rhinos assistant coaches Anthony and David Gibbons have named their squad for the game with Courtney Winfield-Hill returning to captain her team. The Australian needs just 10 points to reach a career milestone off 400 points for the Rhinos. Beth Lockwood is also named in the 19 after gaining a place in the squad after a successful trial with the Rhinos and Danika Priim is back in the side after missing last week’s match due Covid protocols.
Other potential milestones could come for Sophie Robinson who is 12 points away from a career century, Chloe Kerrigan is two points away from 50 points for the Rhinos and Elle Frain needs ten points for 50 career points. Caitlin Beevers will be looking to continue her incredible run in the Challenge Cup – the full back has scored tries in every round of the Cup she has played in for a total of 14 tries.
