Leeds Rhinos vs Wakefield Trinity Super League Round 21 Preview

In terms of must win games, this as a close to it's true definition as possible for both of these sides, the Rhinos currently sat 2 points adrift of 8th place Huddersfield and desperately trying to close the gap, Wakefield in 6th but being hunted down by the late bloomers of Super League's 2018 campaign, a slip up here could see either side as good as nailed on to finish in the bottom 4.

Leeds claimed the win back in April when these two sides last met in a very tense game, the Rhinos with a late surge of points in the last 15 minutes to snatch victory in a game that Wakefield had dominated, the game finishing 28-26 to the Rhinos despite a last minute converted try by Trinity, no doubt that memory will stings and will be used to motivate the Wakefield men.

Leeds welcome back Ash Handley, Carl Ablett, Mitch Garbutt, Brad Dwyer and Cameron Smith into the squad, they replace Lilley,Mullally and Delaney from last week's fallen squad. Wakefield are without one of their star men for this crunch encounter, Liam Finn sidelined as James Batchelor steps back into the frame for Trinity as their only change.

Leeds Rhinos: Ashton Golding, Tom Briscoe, Liam Sutcliffe, Ryan Hall, Joel Moon, Richie Myler, Adam Cuthbertson, Matt Parcell, Brad Singleton, Carl Ablett, Stevie Ward, Brad Dwyer, Mitch Garbutt, Brett Ferres, Ash Handley, Jack Walker, Cameron Smith,  Mikolaj Oledzki, Josh Walters.

Wakefiled Trinity: Chris Annakin, Tinirau Arona, Matty Ashurst, James Batchelor, Mason Caton-Brown, Anthony England, David Fifita, Ryan Hampshire, Keegan Hirst, Justin Horo, Tom Johnstone, Ben Jones-Bishop, Max Jowitt, Reece Lyne, Jacob Miller, Pauli Pauli, Tyler Randell, Bill Tupou, Kyle Wood.

Here we are presented with a clash of inconsistency, both sides turning up part way through the game or sometimes not at all, with that being said, there is also a lot of fire power in both sides and they are both capable of brilliant tries, for me this week I'm backing a Rhinos win by 7-12.
