Leeds Rhinos and Wakefield Trinity Wildcats fans are set for a festive treat on Boxing Day when the two sides meet in the Tetley’s Festive Challenge at Headingley Carnegie, kick off 11.30am.
With only three players from the Rhinos involved in the England squad currently in New Zealand for the Four Nations, it will be the strongest team that the Leeds club have been able to field for a number of years including their new signing Adam Cuthbertson.
Likewise, the Wildcats will be looking to continue the great form they finished last season with under new Head Coach, James Webster, including defeating the Rhinos at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium.
Commenting on the Tetley's Festive Challenge, Wildcats Head Coach James Webster said, "The Boxing day game between Leeds and Wakefield has become a great event over the past few years."
"We're looking forward to giving a run out to some of our new signings and I'm sure there will be another big crowd on hand to enjoy the family, festive spirit."
Leeds Rhinos Chief Executive Gary Hetherington added, “The Boxing Day game is always a great family occasion. Having received feedback from our Fans Forum we have looked to put in a place a pricing structure that is attractive to members and non-members. With ourselves and Wakefield looking to field strong teams, I cannot think of a better value for money day out for all the family over the Christmas period and I hope the fans turn out in great numbers.
“As usual, it will be chance for both sets of fans to see some new faces for the first time in their club colours and with child entry for just £5 and families able to all come for just £40 it promises to be another Festive cracker,” added Hetherington.
