Leeds Rhinos v Slaford Leeds Willie Poching breaks through Salford PICTURE: RICHARD CRAMPTON

Four weeks after their fiery affair at the AJ Bell Stadium, Salford travel to Emerald Headingley this Friday to take on the Rhinos, kick off 7:45pm. Friday’s game will be the first time since March 2020 that Emerald Headingley has hosted a full crowd so make sure you don’t miss out by buying your tickets here.

Ahead of the match, here is a trip down memory lane with a look back at three of the top moments from previous Super League League clashes between the sides.

3. 2016 – Sole Briscoe try edges Leeds to victory

It was a closer encounter between Leeds and Salford in 2016. Only a try from Luke Briscoe and two goals from Liam Sutcliffe proved the difference as Leeds won their first Super League match since April.

2. 2019 – Jones-Buchanan crowns penultimate match with try

Although Salford claimed a 20-12 result at Emerald Headingley towards the end of the 2019 regular season, the night belonged to Leeds legend Jamie Jones-Buchanan, who scored his final try for the club. Spotting a gap in behind the Red Devils goal line defence, an acute kick from Brad Dwyer fell into the path of the onrushing second rower, who leapt on the loose ball and ran celebrating towards the South Stand. He would add a conversion a week later against Warrington too.

1. 2015 – Thirteen tries sees Leeds romp to 70 point win

Leeds recorded their biggest home win over Salford in 2015, scoring 70 points to the visitors’ six. Zak Hardaker, Ryan Hall and Carl Ablett all scored twice, with Danny McGuire, Adam Cuthbertson, Brett Delaney and Josh Walters among the ten different scorers for the home side.

Leeds Rhinos have put tickets on sale for the first game with no capacity restriction for Friday’s game.

The Rhinos have not been able to use their full capacity since they defeated Toronto Wolfpack on 3rd March 2020 with games behind closed doors until May this year and the last three home games restricted to just 4,000 members. 

With a capacity of nearly 20,000 available for the visit of Salford, Leeds are hoping the Rhinos family will come out in force to celebrate and watch Rugby League together again.
