Betfair Rugby League Odds: Updated Grand Final Odds as Stevie Ward Ruled Out for Leeds

Leeds are already the dark horses heading into Saturday’s Super League Grand Final fixture against Castleford, but the injury loss of back-row forward Stevie Ward has stunted their chances further.

Ward suffered a dislocated shoulder in Friday’s semi-final win over Hull, and Leeds coach Brian McDermott confirmed on Monday that his man will not feature in Saturday’s crunch collision with the Tigers:

“They couldn’t get the shoulder back in on Friday so they had to keep him in and do it with gas and air. Obviously he’s in a bad way but he turned up this morning and I don’t think long-term it will be too bad.”

Ward is yet to be ruled out of England’s World Cup tournament but will be a loss for Leeds as one of three internationals named in the roster.

Castleford remain the frontrunners to clinch the Grand Final win on Saturday, however, and are priced at 4/7 (1.57) with Betfair, although Leeds aren’t far off at 11/8 (2.38).
