Leeds Rhinos new signing could make debut as Hull FC boss Tony Smith still waiting on Ligi Sao and Carlos Tuimavave

LEEDS RHINOS will be wanting a better result on Friday night than the one which they were on the receiving end of last week with a 42-10 thrashing at the hands of Warrington Wolves.

Meanwhile, Hull FC will be aiming to build on a solid 60 minutes of rugby league against the Castleford Tigers in which they led 32-6, but Tony Smith will want less of the last 20 minutes which saw them concede four tries and almost lose the game.

It’s going to be uncle versus nephew for this one with uncle Tony in the hotseat at the MKM Stadium and nephew Rohan holding the reins at Headingley.

Nene MacDonald comes in for the Rhinos and could make his debut but there is still no James Bentley and Harry Newman for Rohan Smith’s side, whilst Andre Savelio could make his first appearance of the season. Ligi Sao and Carlos Tuimavave won’t play, though.
