Friday night and a sold out Headingley Carnegie Stadium will host the 2013 Carnegie World Club Challenge match between Leeds Rhinos and Melbourne Storm. To celebrate the occasion Melbourne Storm have a special World Club Challenge jersey which we are pleased to show you here:
The World Club challenge sees a strong Storm outfit comprising 11 of the grand final team with the full squad: Kenny Bromwich, Jesse Bromwich, Will Chambers, Cooper Cronk, Brett Finch, Mahe Fonua, Ben Hampton, Tohu Harris, Ryan Hinchcliffe, Ryan Hoffman, Junior Moors, Bryan Norrie, Justin O’Neill, Jason Ryles, Junior Sa’u, Lagi Setu, Billy Slater, Cameron Smith (capt), Siosaia Vave, Sisa Waqa, Gareth Widdop. Who will be up against a Leeds Rhinos side which is a little battered after last weeks romp against Salford City Reds.
Given the conditions predicted for this weekend we reckon that Rhinos will have the edge both in the cold weather and lack of jet lag. It should be a tight exciting contest which will be a narrow win for Rhinos.
