Defending champions Leeds will be looking to make inroads into an eight-point gap on Stobart Super League leaders Wigan when they entertain St Helens at Headingley tonight.
The Rhinos, who surged into last October's Grand Final from fifth place, currently occupy the eighth play-off spot as they approach the halfway stage of the regular season, although they have two games in hand on most of their rivals.
The match, the first to fill Sky Sports' vacant Monday night slot during football's off season, is a rerun of the Grand Final but St Helens coach Mike Rush believes the champions' minds will be on their more recent clash.
The Rhinos were hammered 46-6 at St Helens in March in the first game under Rush and fellow caretaker coach Keiron Cunningham but know a revenge victory tonight would enable them to overtake their arch rivals.
"They will be using the game at Langtree Park as a motivator to right what went wrong," Rush said.
"We'll be going there expecting nothing but a tough match."
