The Rhinos had just one thought on their minds as their plane lifted off early this morning for the trip to Perpignan to take on the Catalans Dragons, the two points and a winning margin of seven or more points to go top.
In the back of their minds they will also have been looking for revenge for last season undignified exit from the play-offs at the hands of today's hosts when the Dragons upset the form book to end Leeds season.
A win for the Dragons would see them up to sixth and a big win, by more than forty-one points, would see them above Wigan into fifth. If the game wasn't spoiled by the strong winds then the stage was set for a cracker.
The Champions took their unbeaten record on the road to East Hull to try and secure their first away victory against Hull KR after seven successive defeats. The home side were looking to carry on where they had left off in defeating the Warriors and the Dragons, after losing the season opener to the Rhinos in a game they led on two occasions.
Few gave KR a chance against the league leaders, but from the outset the Robins players showed that they had the belief that they could get the two points and upset the bookies and the pundits.
Salford Red Devils and Widnes Vikings met at the City of Salford Stadium in tonights Thursday night fixture, with both eyeing fourth spot in Super League.
Camera shy Salford had not won in front of the SKY cameras for two years, however, the last side that they beat in a televised Super League game was today's opposition.
Salford Red Devils needed to show the rest of the competition that they mean business in 2015 but the bookies fancied the Vikings to collect the points.
Three intrepid Rugby League supporters are embarking on an epic journey to raise money for Rugby League Cares – the umbrella charity of Rugby League and raise awareness for our sport as a whole.
Dan and his two friends Beck and Mike have purchased an old 02 plate Renault Scenic and set off on their journey on Saturday 4th April to arrive in Perpignan for Monday 6th April in time for the Catalans Dragons v. Widnes Vikings Super League fixture.
They are hoping to receive donations along the way in the form of car merchandise to help make their old motor look like a Rugby League Fun Bus on the way into Perpignan and are also asking to have their car signed by every available first team player in Super League!
It's all change for the 2015 Challenge Cup with a new format that goes hand in hand with the new league structure.
The weekend saw twelve round four games, involving the amateur survivors from the earlier rounds, with the Championship sides thrown into the mix for the first time.
Tuesday night will see all eyes turn to the fifth round draw in Hull when the victors from round four will be joined by the Superleague sides which did not finish in the top eight last season; Salford Red Devils, Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, and both Hull FC and Hull KR (three out of this seasons bottom four after round six).
When the teams were posted for tonight's match-up between the Rhinos and the Warriors, much of the chatter was about who was missing rather than who was playing. The home side were looking to get back to winning ways, after losing their unbeaten 2015 record last week at the Halliwell-Jones, but would have to do it without Tom Briscoe and the skipper Kevin Sinfield.
Wigan, still looking for some consistent Superleague XX form, would be without Josh Charnley, ruled out for up to six weeks due to injury.
The two points would get the Rhinos back to second spot but the Warriors were the more needy for the points as a loss would mean that they are in danger of slipping to eighth, should other results go against them over the weekend.
Leeds Rhinos and Wigan Warriors fans are set to create the biggest attendance of the First Utility Super League season so far when the side’s meet tonight at Headingley Carnegie.
With the South Stand and Carnegie Stand terrace already sold out, Leeds Rhinos are also set for a record Super League crowd against their old rivals Wigan when the Warriors arrive at Headingley Carnegie tonight, kick off 8pm.
The Champions were looking to make it six from six at the start of a Superleague XX but were up against a side they'd not beaten at home in the last five attempts, and who had demolished the Rhinos unbeaten record last weekend.
Warrington were unchanged to celebrate Tony Smiths six year tenure and they arrived at Langtree Park in the knowledge that a win by thirty-four points or more would see them into top spot, above their hosts.
The stage was set for a classic.
