Match Pack: Round Fifteen

Tonight Leeds Rhinos will take on Leigh Leopards in the Betfred Super League at AMT Headingley, KO 8pm.

Ahead of the teams taking to the field, here is your snapshot preview of everything you need to know about the two teams:


21-man squad recap

Rhinos

In brief

- The Rhinos have confirmed that four players will miss the game after being ruled out by the RFL’s concussion protocols following last Saturday’s game at Hull FC.

- Sam Eseh, a short term signing from Wigan, is one of three players that could make his Rhinos debut tonight along with Ben Littlewood and Toby Warren. Having come through Wakefield's academy system, Eseh was signed by Wigan for the 2024 season but supports the Leeds forward pack for the next four weeks.

Littlewood and Warren have played most of their rugby in the Reserves this year, having both played for the club's Under-18s Academy previously. 

- Rhyse Martin is three goals away from hitting 500 in his career, after adding one against Hull FC last time out.

- Harry Newman, Ash Handley, Tom Holroyd and Sam Lisone have all be stood down this week having displayed concussion symptoms post Hull FC. They join Andy Ackers and James Bentley as they recover from concussion, whilst Morgan Gannon has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2024 season.

Leopards

In brief

- Leigh could hand a debut to Aaron Pene after the prop's arrival from Melbourne Storm a week ago. He is the only change to the Leopards side as Gareth O'Brien drops out.

- Former Leeds player Zak Hardaker could hit two milestones against his old club. The centre is three tries away from 150 tries for his career and 100 tries in Super League.

- Josh Charnley also needs a try to draw level with Maurice Richards (31st) in the all-time scorers in the British game.
