Betfred Women's Super League Preview

Leeds Rhinos continue their quest for a title defence on Sunday as they make the trip to York City Knights, 5.15pm kick off on Sunday in a game which will be shown live on Twitch and Our League.

The Rhinos finished top of the table at the initial stage of the season claiming an impressive seven wins from seven fixtures, conceding just 38 points along the way.

They then backed up that eye-catching start with a hard-fought 28-6 win at Castleford Tigers in the first round of the play-offs and will be aiming to make it nine league wins in a row this week.

In the opposite camp, York finished fourth in the table after five wins from seven games but they have work to do in the play-offs after slipping to a convincing 32-0 defeat at the hands of St Helens last time out.

The game is set to be played in front of a bumper crowd at York's all-new LNER Community Stadium as it forms part of an exciting double-header, kicking off after the Knights' men's team clash with Bradford Bulls in the Betfred Championship.

Also in the Betfred Women's Super League on Sunday, Castleford Tigers face a trip to face Wigan Warriors, 3pm kick off.
