Leeds Rhinos vs Widnes Vikings Super League Round 22 Preview


The Vikings travel to Leeds emerald headingley this Friday ( K/O 19.45) hoping to complete a double over a Leeds team who have under performed all season ,failing to win in their previous nine in super league. Winning any game at the moment is a big ask for a Vikings team sitting firmly at the bottom of super league .Veteran kiwi Patrick Ah Van returns in place of the injured Stefan Marsh, whilst Weller Hauraki and young Brad Walker replace Hansbury and Wilde respectively . For the Rhinos versatile jimmy Keinhorst returns from injury alongside Matt Purcell with Brett Ferres and Cameron Smith making way. for the Vikings Olly Ashall Bott and Owen Buckley have been a revelation in recent weeks and they will be eager to impress against a back line containing Ryan Hall,Joel Moon and Ashton Golding. That back line and the support play of Richie Myler as well as the intelligent style of Stevie Ward should prove to be to much for a widnes team without a super league victory since March. I’m expecting a big performance from Widnes vikings again and they remain a team who could shock a few teams in the next few weeks. The only shock on Friday however will be if the Rhinos don’t run away with a 24-28 point victory, with some heavy scores in the last quarter . Leeds Rhinos 19-man squad: 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, Jimmy Keinhorst, Ash Handley, Jack Walker, Mikolaj Oledzki, Josh Walters, Luke Briscoe. Widnes Vikings 19-man squad: Patrick Ah Van, Wellington Albert, Olly Ashall-Bott, Owen Buckley, Jay Chapelhow, Ted Chapelhow, Danny Craven, Gil Dudson, Weller Hauraki, Aaron Heremaia, Chris Houston, Krisnan Inu, MacGraff Leuluai, Joe Mellor, Tom Olbison, Charly Runciman, Brad Walker, Danny Walker, Matt Whitley.
