Paul McShane who will be facing his former side Leeds Rhinos said, "Pre season has been a rather tough occasion so it is nice when you can get to have a game at the end of it, it will also be good to go back and play at Leeds again."
"I like the Christmas shirt, it is something that has never been done before and I think that it is a great thing to do."
