Head to Head: Wolves v RhinosThursdayÆs game will be a fight between animals, Rhinos against Wolves. Leeds had an excellent last match against Wakefield managing to pull back a small but significant lead however the Wolves were less successful against Wigan but ThursdayÆs match is open to either team.Who will meet head to head? The WolvesÆ Nick Fozzard and the RhinosÆ Barrie McDermott had a clash as they fought for Yorkshire and Lancashire, leading to a frustrating time in the sin-bin for both. Will they see this as an opportunity for a replay or a way of getting their own back? Fozzard has incredible stamina, pace and strength but he adds aggression to the Wolves, will this be his winning contribution to the match? McDermott is said to be a leaner player this year, so will he use a æLean mean fighting machineÆ attitude to help him score in the crucial moments as he has done in the past?WarringtonÆs Nathan Wood will face LeedsÆ Rob Burrow who plays scrum half. Burrow is classed as a surprise package so the Wolves will have to watch out. His debut was against Warrington in 2001. Nathan Wood is one of WarringtonÆs new players who, along with Westwood only had their home debut recently. The Wolves will use his knowledge and experience as an excellent weapon against the Rhinos.The WolvesÆ young new player Ben Westwood will fight off LeedsÆ Chev Walker with his enthusiasm. This match will be an excellent opportunity for this exciting young player. If we look at the whole picture it is clear to see that Leeds have a head start owing to their reasonably high position on the league table but the Wolves will come out in fighting form ready to give Leeds their toughest match ever. Will the Wolves manage to improve their position with their new weapons out on the pitch?
