Sports Mole looks ahead to Saturday's Super League Grand Final between holders Leeds Rhinos and Warrington Wolves at Old Trafford.

The biggest game in the Super League season rolls around on Saturday as defending champions Leeds Rhinos take on Warrington Wolves in the Grand Final at Old Trafford.

The Rhinos secured their fifth Grand Final appearance in six years with a dramatic 13-12 victory over Wigan Warriors last Friday, while the Wolves had it slightly easier as a 36-18 triumph at St Helens put them in the season-ending encounter for the first time in their history.

Both sides recorded a win over the other in the regular season as fifth-placed Leeds finished nine points worse off than second-place Warrington in the final standings.

However, Tony Smith's men romped home in August's Challenge Cup Final at Wembley Stadium as they saw off their rivals 35-18.

Leeds welcome back Danny McGuire from a two-match ban as Warrington name an unchanged squad for the showpiece event.


Atkins, Briers, Carvell, Cooper, Grix, Harrison, Higham, Hill, Hodgson, McCarthy, J Monaghan, M Monaghan, Morley, Myler, Ratchford, Riley, Waterhouse, Westwood, Wood

Jones-Bishop, Watkins, Hardaker, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Delaney, Bailey, Kirke, Clarkson, Griffin, Moore, Ward, Lunt

Sports Mole says: Leeds to defy the odds and become the first team to retain the trophy since themselves back in 2009.
