Leeds Rhinos meet the Salford Red Devils in the Coral Challenge Cup final at Wembley on Saturday. Leeds are the favourites to take the title but the Red Devils have been in fine form recently, and will fancy their chances of upsetting the odds.

Leeds Rhinos Form


Leeds Rhinos may be the favourites but they don’t come into the final in particularly impressive form. The Rhinos have lost two of their last five matches including their last match. They went down 32-6 to Warrington away from home.

Leeds reached the final by seeing off Wigan 26-12 in the Challenge Cup semi-final and won’t lack confidence coming into this match after beating Salford twice in 2020 by comfortable margins.

Leeds Rhinos News


Leeds Rhinos will have Tom Holroyd available after he received a caution rather than a ban following his dangerous tackle last Thursday against Hull. Rob Lui has also been passed fit which means the Rhinos have the option of playing the same team that won them their semi-final.

Salford Red Devils Form


Salford Red Devils come into the Challenge Cup final in fine form having won four of their last five matches in all competitions. They reached the Challenge Cup final by beating Warrington 24-22 in the semi-final.

The Red Devils did suffer defeat in their last match as they went down to Hull KR 24-22 away from home. Salford did rest a few players for that match with one eye on this final.

Salford Red Devils News


Salford breathed a sigh of relief when full-back Dan Sarginson avoided a ban for a dangerous tackle last Thursday. There are no other injury concerns but COVID-19 tests still need to come back.

Leeds Rhinos vs Salford Red Devils Head to Head
