Super 8s Preview: Wakefield v Leeds (Thu)

Leeds can tighten their grip on a home Super League play-off game when they travel to Wakefield Trinity on Thursday night.

They welcome back Rob Burrow following a nine-game lay-off, while Mitch Garbutt also returns from injury.

A win for the Rhinos would put them eight points clear of Salford and Wakefield, who currently occupy fifth and sixth spots.

Wakefield, meanwhile, will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing defeat at Huddersfield last weekend.

They have brought back Max Jowitt and David Fifita to their 19-man squad, though Fifita did feature against the Giants have passed a late fitness test.

Mason Caton-Brown misses out.

Squads:

Wakefield: Annakin, Arona, Arundel, Ashurst, England, Fifita, Finn, Grix, Hadley, Hasson, Hirst, Jones-Bishop, Jowitt, Kirmond, Lyne, Miller, Tupou, Williams, Wood.

Leeds: Golding, Briscoe, Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Parcell, Cuthbertson, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Ward, Sutcliffe, Delaney, Singleton, Garbutt, Keinhorst, Mullally, Lilley.

Prediction:

Hard to look past a Rhinos win here – Leeds by 10.
