Leeds Rhinos will be out for revenge when St Helens are the visitors at Headingley Carnegie for Sky Sports' first Monday night Super League live game.

Saints dished out a 46-6 beating to the champions at Langtree Park in March, Brian McDermott's heaviest defeat in charge of Leeds.

St Helens have an excellent recent record at Headingley, winning three of their last five visits across the Pennines.

However, Leeds have won when it counts with their last four Grand Final successes all coming against the Lancashire club.

Saints have won five of their last six in Stobart Super League action while Leeds are eighth in the table with seven wins from 12.

Return

The Rhinos are boosted by the return of highly-rated centre Kallum Watkins, who has played since Leeds' Good Friday defeat to the Bradford Bulls due to a medial strain.

Jamie Peacock, Brett Delaney and Carl Ablett are also back after missing last Friday's Challenge Cup quarter-final win at Leigh.

Winger Ben Jones-Bishop misses out this week and will play no part against Mike Rush's men.

Rush has made one change to his 19-man squad from the team which bowed out of the Challenge Cup at the hands of rivals Wigan.

Tony Puletua returns from injury replacing Andy Dixon, otherwise the 19 is the same as the one which lost at the DW Stadium.

Leeds squad: Webb, Watkins, Hardaker, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, McShane, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, L. Smith, Bailey, Clarkson, Hauraki, Griffin, Moore, Lunt.

St Helens squad: Wellens, Shenton, Soliola, Meli, Hohaia, Lomax, Perry, Roby, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Puletua, Wilkin, Flannery, Laffranchi, Flanagan, Clough, Wheeler, Magennis, Makinson, J. Jones.
