Rocket Rob to make sensational World Club return
William Hill, official bookmaker to Super League, make Leeds' Rob Burrow 8/1 second favourite to make a sensational return from injury by winning the Man of the Match award in the World Club Challenge on Sunday.
With just seventy-two hours before the Super League Champions take on the NRL Premiers Hills still can't separate Leeds and Manly, making both sides 5/6 to pick up the trophy at Elland Road.
And according to Hills, the only player more likely than Burrow to have a bigger influence on the outcome is Manly's Dally M Medal winner Matt Orford.
The sides look extremely closely matched from 1 to 17, so the two brilliant and unpredictable number 7s could well hold the key to victory. We're fairly sure Burrow will be in the Leeds line-up, but if he doesn't make it, Manly will certainly become favourites for the match.
