St Helens v Leeds Rhinos Preview
St Helens welcome the Leeds Rhinos for what is always one of the standout matches of the season and what is a match that has consistently given us all great action and must see moments no matter if you are a supporter of either side or if you are a neutral.
As two of the most successful sides during the Super League era, matches between these 2 have gone a long way to deciding where titles and trophies will end up come the end of the season and whilst that cannot be the case in every game, there is that extra air of expectation from fans in attendance and from fans of the game in general when these 2 meet.
That buzz around the game often effects things out on the field as even if one of the teams is struggling for form or with injuries, when these 2 meet, both sides step up and go toe to toe over 80 minutes and give all of us rugby fans great action.
Both sides are packed with international stars, some of the best youngsters in the game and players who have come through the ranks at their club and know just how important the game is so whilst it is not a derby game, it does have that playing bragging rights feel about it and makes it a must win for both teams no matter what the situation is for both clubs.
Saints home stadium is one of the biggest and best rugby specific stadiums in the competition and makes for the perfect venue for a game of this status.
The Totally Wicked Stadium offers a great mix of corporate facilities and seating and standing areas that helps the fans to create a great atmosphere and that is especially true for matches such as this, which has the whole town exciting in the week running up to kick off.
The players have all that they need to give us a great match and with the skill, quality, and experience on show, it is no surprise that the players more often than not give us a game to match the quality of surroundings and the support from both sets of fans.
