Following an underwhelming 2016 season, Leeds Rhinos will be looking to get off to a flying start when the new campaign begins this February.
But before the new season starts, the Rhinos will compete in a number of interesting games as part of their pre-season.
First for Brian McDermott’s side is a home game with Wakefield Trinity Wildcats. The ‘Wetherby Whaler Festive Challenge’ takes place on Boxing Day at Headingley.
Next, the Rhinos will face local side Hunslet RLFC at the South Leeds Stadium on the 15th of January.
Five day’s later, the Rhinos will be back at Headingley as they take on Hull KR in Ryan Hall’s testimonial game.
On the 27th of January, Leeds will travel to the Big Fellas Stadium where they will take on Featherstone Rovers.
That same weekend, the 2015 Super League winners will take on Doncaster at the Keepmoat Stadium.
