Champions Leeds Rhinos kick off the new 2016 Rugby Super League season at home to Warrington Wolves on 4th February.
Leeds have their fair share of problems with the recent flooding of their training facilities meaning they have had to train across the city since the river Aire burst its banks. It looks like the club are facing a £1m bill for flood damage that could keep them out of their regular training facilities for a further 12 months.
80 members of staff and 120 players have been kept out of the premises for the past month after the whole site was submerged under water. All of the pitches have had to be dug up and reseeded.
In 2015 the Rhinos were simply unstoppable and played some irresistible rugby that other teams could only dream of but with their preparation for the new season badly disrupted they could struggle to repeat the feat.
Leeds are the favourites as you would expect in the match betting at 11/8 but Warrington are close behind Leeds in the grand final final betting and with better preparation they could spring a surprise on the opening day.
