These matches will be played on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th of September.

The Semi-finals are then next. For this round, the teams who finished 1st and second will meet the winners of the Eliminators. This round will be played on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th of October.

And then comes the Grand Final, the last match of the season that determines the Super League 2023 season champion.

The Grand Final will be played on Saturday 14th of October.

Leeds Rhinos Key Players

Mikolaj Oledzki is the young star at the club. At 24 years of age, he has already established himself as one of the finest players in his position in the league, and the Polish prop will be returning to add to his first Super League Dream Team appereance from last campaign.

There are some new faces in the team, with James McDonnell being a notable signing.

The young second-row/centre came from Wigan Warriors and was highly sought by many teams, with the Englishman choosing to move to the Rhinos mainly because of head coach Rohan Smith.

McDonnell’s stock was quite high after he impressed with a spectacular try for the Warriors in the 2020 season against the Catalans.

Leeds also signed another impressive promising prop by the name of Justin Sangare.

Sangare previously played for Toulouse Olympique in France, having risen through their academy ranks.

Hailing from Mali but representing the French national side, there is the expectation that Sangare could grow into a fine player.

Hometown hero James Bentley returns and will be looking to spur the team on similar to how he did in the semi-finals last season.
