Victory would seal Leeds’ top-six spot and give them an opportunity of snatching fourth, but whatever happens in France, Rhinos will be in the play-offs if they beat Castleford Tigers on Saturdeay.
Four injuries and a suspension from last week’s win over Huddersfield Giants have left Rhinos down to the bare bones, again, but here’s a 17 which minimises that and gives Liam Sutcliffe and Morgan Gannon extra time to be fit for this weekend’s derby.
1. Full-back: Richie Myler
Logically, Myler will switch into the halves, but problems elsewhere might mean he stays in the number one role. Photo: Alex Whitehead/SWpix.com
2. Wing: Liam Tindall
Missed last week's win over Huddersfield because of a thumb injury, but - with David Fusitu'a on the casualty list - it would be a wlecome return. Photo: Manuel Blondeau/SWpix.com
3. Centre: Zak Hardaker
If Hardaker stays in the centres, with Myler at full-back, there'll be no need to risk Liam Sutcliffe after his knee injury last Wednesday. Photo: Alex Whitehead/SWpix.com
4. Centre: Tom Briscoe
Briscoe's return last week was well-timed and he can start - for the first time since April - in the centres. Unless, of couse, he's needed on a wing. Photo: Alex Whitehead/SWpix.com
5. Wing: Ash Handley
Possibly one of Smith's less complicated decisions, though Handley can also play full-back or centre. Photo: Alex Whitehead/SWpix.com
6. Stand-off: Kruise Leeming
Leeming has played in the halves this season and wouldn't let anyone down. Photo: Alex Whitehead/SWpix.com
