Second row/centre Chloe Kerrigan can become the fifth Rhinos Women’s player in history to make 50 appearances for the club, should she run out on Sunday.
Kerrigan has made 45 starts and four substitute appearances over her four seasons in blue and amber, plus she was ever-present during the team’s 2019 campaign when they lifted the Grand Final trophy and Challenge Cup.
Sophie Nuttall needs ten points to reach 50 points in her Betfred Women’s Super League career.
She has one try in all competitions so far this year, which came in the Challenge Cup win over Warrington in the quarter finals
Skipper Courtney Winfield-Hill needs four goals at Headingley to take her Rhinos career total to 200.
Now in her fourth season with the club, Winfield-Hill kicked the most goals during her first season in blue and amber (63 in 2018) and this year, she currently has 32 goals.
The versatile Hanna Butcher is two points shy of surpassing 100 points for the Rhinos.
As one of the Rhinos’ inaugural squad members and the club’s joint-leading appearance maker, she has accumulated 94 points over four years with 20 tries and seven goals.
Forward Zoe Hornby moved to within two points of reaching 50 points for the club.
Having joined Leeds only a year ago, Hornby has wasted no time in scoring tries as she has ten in 19 appearances. Seven of those have come during this season, including five in her last two matches against Wigan.
Another member of the Leeds’ first ever Super League squad Tasha Gaines needs four points to reach her century of Rhinos points.
Both a try scorer and goal kicker, she has scored 13 tries and kicked 22 goals during her four years in blue and amber, including three tries this year.
Admission for Sunday’s game is £5 for adults and £2 for Under-16s. There is both standing and seating available along with drinks and snacks in the clubhouse.
