Leeds chase back to back victoies
March 28, 2008

Leeds Carnegie will head to Saracens this Sunday looking to win back to back games in the Guinness Premiership for the first time since November 2005 after their victory over Newcastle in the last round.

Hooker Rob Rawlinson has been passed fit after coming off during last Friday's win over Newcastle at Headingley Carnegie. There have been a number of injury blows to Stuart Lancaster's side however.

Twelve players will be unavailable due to injury, four of which came in the 16-15 win over the Falcons. Jon Dunbar (shoulder), Lee Blackett (chest), Alberto Di Bernardo (shoulder) and Tommy McGee (shoulder) are the latest to join the injured list.

That list already includes Adam Balding (knee), Jonny Hepworth (knee), Andy Tuilagi (shoulder), Mike Aspinall (groin), Vili M'asi (bicep), Michael Cusack (thumb), Colin Noon (back) and Calum Clark (hip).

Leeds Carnegie skipper Stuart Hooper, Joe Bedford and James Parkes are all former Saracens players.
There is some good news for Stuart Lancaster on the bench, with prop Fosi Pala'amo returning to fitness.
