Rohan Smith brings in shock inclusion for Leeds Rhinos as they travel to Catalans Dragons in Super League play-offs

Catalans Dragons will take on the Leeds Rhinos live on Sky Sports on Friday night at the Stade Gilbert Brutus.

Catalans go into this one on the back of a drubbing by rival play-off contenders Wigan Warriors, but it will be a much-changed side this time around.

Meanwhile, Leeds just about overcame the Castleford Tigers last weekend in a win that secured their place in the top six.

Injury news

Catalans will be hoping to have Sam Tomkins back after he has missed the last couple of weeks with a knee issue. Leeds, meanwhile, will be without Ash Handley and could be without Brad Dwyer following last week’s win over Castleford. However, there is a major shock inclusion for the Rhinos with Harry Newman back in the 21-man squad. James Donaldson also potentially returns, but Rhyse Martin is suspended after his appeal was found to be frivolous after meeting with the Operations Rules Tribunal last night.

Kick-off time

The game will kick off at 8pm on Friday night at the Stade Gilbert Brutus.

TV details

The game will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Arena from 7.30pm. Highlights will also be found on the Super League Show as well as Super League’s Youtube channel.
