Rhinos are hoping to go one better on Rugby League Nines Final night at Headingley Carnegie on Tuesday, 26th June, as they look to better their Plate Final win last season.

The Rhinos have named a strong squad after coming through their half of the group stage in second place, just one point behind Wakefield, who inflicted the only defeat of the league stage on the Rhinos in the last Festival.

Six Stobart Super League clubs - Hull Kingston Rovers, Leeds Rhinos, London Broncos, Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, Warrington Wolves and Wigan Warriors - plus Co-operative Championship champions Featherstone Rovers and a combined Cumbria team will all battle it out after successfully negotiating the group stages.

The Rhinos team includes five players who have played in the first team this season along with German international Jimmy Keinhorst, Welsh internationals Ollie Olds and Jack Pring and Rugby Union convert Curtis Wilson.

The team first teamers are Lee Smith, Ian Kirke, Liam Hood, Brad Singleton and Chris Clarkson.

Rhinos winger Ben Jones-Bishop will be out for revenge in the contest to find Rugby League's Fastest Man. He lost out by the smallest of margins to former Academy team mate Jodie Broughton last year but he returns in 2012 looking to claim the title. He will be up against six other players and full time referee Thierry Alibert in the 90 metre race that will take place before the Finals on the night.
