Warrington are the next side to test the 100% record of champions Leeds Rhinos, who are averaging more than 40 points a match.
The Wolves have lost their last six meetings with the Rhinos and have won only one of their opening three matches but Leeds coach Tony Smith is still expecting them to make the top six. ?They were desperately unlucky last week against Saints and they will be looking to make up for that this week,? he said.
The champions will be looking to extend their club record run of unbeaten Super League matches to 18 as they close in on the overall record of 21 set by Bradford in 1996.
Leeds winger Mark Calderwood, who has scored in every game so far, and Warrington centre Toa Kohe-Love both go into the match needing four more tries to register a career century. Leeds Rhinos v Warrington Wolves, Headingley, Friday 11th March 2005 Leeds 18-man squad: Mathers, Calderwood, Walker, Senior, Bai, Burrow, Bailey, McDermott, Lauitiiti, McKenna, Sinfield, Dunemann, Ward, Poching, McDonald, Jones-Buchanan, Ellis, Botham. Warrington 18-man: Grose, Faa?fili, Martin Gleeson, Kohe-Love, Gaskell, Briers, Appo, Hilton, Clarke, Stevens, Pickersgill, Bracek, Mark Gleeson, Westwood, Lima, Royle, Wainwright, Bridge.
