Leeds Rhinos v Warrington Wolves Preview
The Leeds Rhinos welcome the Warrington Wolves to Headingley Stadium for what is always one of the standout matches of the season.
As 2 of the biggest clubs in the northern hemisphere, this West Yorkshire vs Cheshire match up always has lots riding on it no matter where the 2 clubs are placed in the league.
Throughout much of the last decade and certainly throughout most of the Super League era, both the Leeds Rhinos and the Warrington Wolves have been battling it out for titles and trophies and whilst both have had seasons to forget during that period, it takes little away from the importance of matches between the 2 sides.
From a neutral point of view, these matches are always great spectacles and you are never sure of the outcome going into the games due to the quality on both sides of the field but that unpredictable nature of the matches does make it tough for us to predict the outcome.
Headingley Stadium is one of, if not the best, dedicated rugby stadium in the country. Not only does the stadium feature great corporate facilities but it also features great facilities for all fans.
From large and comfortable modern seating in stands that are steeply raked to make sure every body ahs a great view to standing areas along the touchline and behind the posts, no matter what your preference is when watching rugby, you can have it at Headingley.
When you couple that with a location in one of the biggest cities in the UK and you have all of the ingredients you need for a big home following but when a club such as the Wolves are in town, the match is all set for a big crowd and one that will see vocal backing for both teams.
That gives the players the perfect setting and atmosphere to provide there very best and with the quality out there on the field, that should see the match be up there as one of the best of the season.
