Leeds Match Stats

Wigan face 6th placed Leeds Rhinos at Headingley-Carnegie on Friday night in Engage Super League XVI, Round 8, 8pm kick off.

The Warriors are looking to bounce back following their 6-24 home reversal last time out against Warrington Wolves while Leeds got back on track last Sunday at Wakefield with a 6-28 win.

Wigan have won four, drawn one and lost one and are on 9 points, Leeds have won four and lost three and are a point behind.

Wigan welcome back the suspended Joel Tomkins (pictured) to the squad after he served a two game ban following his sending off in the home win to Hull FC but Pat Richards, Paul Deacon, Stuart Fielden and Eamon O'Carroll all still miss out through injury.

Leeds have had a succession of injuries with the likes of Brett Delaney, Danny McGuire, Jamie Peacock, Ali Lauitiiti and Zak Hardaker all on the sidelines. Lee Smith has been included in the Rhinos 19 man squad but remains a doubt as he tries to recover in time from the hamstring injury he suffered two weeks ago.

Luke Burgess is the only player missing from the Rhinos squad that beat Wakefield at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium however Ian Kirke, who missed that game through illness, is back available this week.

Leeds and Wigan met five times in 2010, the Warriors winning three (both regular season Engage Super League games and the Qualifying semi-final) and the Rhinos two (Super League Qualifying play-off and Carnegie Challenge Cup quarter final).

The Rhinos' 12-10 Challenge Cup win at Headingley on 29 May was the Warriors' last defeat away from home.
