Super League match preview: Leeds Rhinos v London Broncos
Last Updated: 12/04/13 7:53pm
Ryan Bailey: is serving the second match of a four-game ban for the Leeds Rhinos
Leeds Rhinos will be looking to maintain their fine form when the London Broncos come to Headingley Carnegie on Friday night.
The Super League champions made it back-to-back victories on Sunday after following up their success in France over the Catalan Dragons by beating last season's Grand Finalists Warrington Wolves.
Leeds are four points behind leaders Wigan Warriors, although Brian McDermott's men have two games in hand while in contrast the Broncos have only two wins from 11 league outings.
The Rhinos could have a debutant on show with teenager Liam Sutcliffe named in McDermott's 19-man squad for the visit of Tony Rea's men.
The 18-year-old former Hunslet Warriors amateur has been an ever present for the Under 19s at stand-off in the opening eight wins of the season.
The Rhinos are without rugged second row Brett Delaney and utility back Joe Vickery through injury while Ryan Bailey serves the second game of his four match suspension.
Broncos head coach Rea has one enforced change to his squad with Will Lovell replacing the injured Tony Clubb for the Headingley clash.
Clubb will miss around eight weeks with a knee injury sustained in the game against Bradford. Ben Fisher is back in the squad in place of Mike McMeeken, who also played against the Bulls.
"It's one of the great days of the season going up to Headingley," said Tony Rea. "It's a terrific ground and great place to play rugby league.
"Leeds are in terrific form and we know we'll have to be at our best on Friday night to beat them."
Leeds Rhinos: Hardaker, Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, McShane, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Ward, Kirke, Clarkson, Achurch, Moore, Singleton, Sutcliffe.
London Broncos: Bailey, Bryant, Channing, Colbon, Cook, Dixon, Dollapi, Fisher, Gower, Hurst, Kaufusi, Lee, Lovell, Melling, Randall, Rodney, Sarginson, Wheeldon, Witt.
