Singleton: Leeds game is Barrow’s Grand Final

Brad Singleton will start at loose forward for Ireland

Leeds’ forward Brad Singleton says Barrow will treat Sunday’s Challenge Cup tie between the two sides as their Grand Final.

Barrow-born Singleton admits he’s looking forward to facing his hometown club, but insists Leeds will not underestimate their League 1 opponents.

“I think it will be a big day out, Headingley will impress the Barrow lot – some of them might not play here again, so I think this will be like their Grand Final, and we just really need to match that,” he told the club’s official website.

“From what I hear they’re bringing half the town with them. I think they’ll come in strong and just like when they get a big draw in the FA Cup they’ll be here in a force.

“I wouldn’t underestimate them at all. They’re in good form, they’re unbeaten and they’ve got a strong pack. I went and watched them early on in the year and they’re just chewing sides up.

“If they get a good win against Keighley (on Wednesday) I think they’ll come into Headingley bouncing, so we’ve got to weather that and hopefully come out on top.”
