The round 10 fixture was due to be played last Saturday, but called off after a coronavirus outbreak among Rhinos' players and staff.

The match will kick off at 6.15pm UK time, with live coverage on Sky Sports.

It will be the sides' second meeting in eight days, with Catalans due to visit Emerald Headingley the previous Friday.
