Myler ready for Headingley debut

Leeds Rhinos half-back Richie Myler says he's looking forward to making his long-awaited Headingley debut in Thursday's match against Hull FC.

Leeds, 150/1 to win the Grand Final, have been forced to play matches away from the ground so far this season due to major improvement works taking place.

The work remains ongoing. The new South Stand will be partially open on Thursday, while supporters will also have access to a temporary North Stand.

"We trained on the main pitch last weekend and it was a bit weird with the stadium still being built. I didn't realise just how big the South Stand is going to be. It's absolutely massive. It will be a great atmosphere and it'll be interesting to see how it all fits," said Myler, who recognises the threat posed by Hull FC, 40/1 to win the Grand Final.

"Hull have a good combination. Their play-makers complement each other well and ask a lot of questions of you in different ways. We have to be on our game to get it right against them and it's a challenge I'm looking forward to."

Myler joined the Rhinos from Catalans Dragons ahead of the 2018 season and says he's enjoyed his stay so far.

"I've settled in well here now and I'm really enjoying it," he added. "We've such a talented bunch of players, it makes it a pleasure to be playing here."

The Rhinos' match last weekend, against Myler's old club, was postponed, and he said: "The break was probably good timing. We'll have a few blokes back this week and hopefully get back to winning ways."
