Smith hoping for family double this weekend

Leeds Rhinos forward Cameron Smith is hoping there will be plenty to celebrate in the Smith family household this weekend as he hopes to help Rhinos back to winning ways at Catalans Dragons on Friday night before cheering on big brother Daniel and Castleford Tigers in the Betfred Challenge Cup Final at Wembley.

Smith was part of the Rhinos squad last year at Wembley but missed out on the final 17 on the day however with fans now allowed to return, he had hoped to be there in person to cheer his brother on with the rest of the family. However, with Leeds travelling to France on Friday, he has to quarantine for five days on return as part of the Covid regulations so will have to settle for watching the game on BBC One.
