Rugby League Grand Final | Castleford Tigers vs Leeds Rhinos
6th October 2017
The Theatre of Dreams plays host to an afternoon of magic this Saturday as Castleford Tigers take on Leeds Rhinos in the Super League Grand Final.
The Tigers partake in their first Super League Grand Final and it is certainly a theatrical story, a club who returns from the brink to be runaway winners of the League Leaders’ Shield and favourites for tomorrow’s final.
The seasonal form of Tigers versus the experience of the Rhinos is making for a classic. A dark cold autumnal evening, full house and the chance of glory all come together to create an environment where these competitors come in to their own and thrive in the moment.
The Rhinos are able to name an unchanged squad whereas the Tigers’ preparation has been rocked by the news that Super League star, Zak Hardaker, is omitted from their squad due to disciplinary issues.
For Leeds this means that the duo of Danny McGuire and Rob Burrow make their swansong appearance at OT before moving and retiring respectively, between them they have made nearly 1000 appearance for Leeds and have won 7 Grand Finals.
It is set to be a cracker and we can’t wait to see who comes out victorious.
