Leeds host Catalan Dragons on Sunday looking to make it ten wins out of ten against their French opposition.
The Dragons have lost on all nine previous visits to Leeds and their only home defeat this year came at the hands of the Rhinos back in February.
The hosts come into the match in indifferent form, having won two and lost two of their past four games with a 38-28 win at Widnes last time out coming on the back of a home defeat to Huddersfield.
Laurent Frayssinous’ Dragons, meanwhile, are unbeaten in five matches, winning four. They stretched their impressive winning streak on home soil to eight last weekend against Hull FC and while they are less convincing on the road they have avoided defeat in their last two.
The Dragons lie in seventh, three points off sixth place Warrington, and know they are likely to remain their barring a very heavy defeat.
Both sides make two changes to their squads from last weekend, with Mitch Achurch back in the Leeds squad for the first time since May after injury. The back row is joined in Brian McDermott’s 19 by Luke Briscoe, who made his debut in the Rhinos last home game with Huddersfield.
"They are a much-improved team," McDermott said. "They struggled to find form at the start of the year but they are a more fluent beast at the moment.
"They seem to have got that steel and toughness back and they've been in great form these past few weeks. They have a very aggressive pack, which makes them a formidable team."
The visitors welcome back Eloi Pelissier after his one match ban and also include Julian Bousquet with Thomas Bosc and Lopini Paea dropping out.
Leeds: Jones-Bishop, Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Leuluai, Aiton, Peacock, Ablett, Sinfield, Ward, Delaney, Bailey, Achurch, T Briscoe, Sutcliffe, Singleton, Walters, L Briscoe.
Catalan Dragons: Escaré, Pryce, Pomeroy, Oldfield, Elima, Henderson, Lima, Taia, Anderson, Mounis, Pelissier, Whitehead, Millard, Bousquet, Baitieri, Duport, Cardace, Garcia, Williams.
