Leeds Rhinos captain Kallum Watkins says the players are ready to make the most of a historic opportunity this Friday when they take on Melbourne Storm at AAMI Park in the Downer World Club Challenge.

Watkins will lead the Rhinos out on Friday night at AAMI Park and he says the squad is in good shape after the long journey Down Under.

The team had their first full day of training in Melbourne on Monday with a morning weights session, followed by a field session in the afternoon. In between practise, the squad attended the launch for Friday’s game and Watkins was front as centre as the Champions skipper to pose with Melbourne’s legendary captain Cameron Smith.
