Jonny Lomax stays at full-back in the absence of injured duo Paul Wellens and Lance Hohaia, while acting captain Jon Wilkin and Gary Wheeler continue their new half-back pairing following St Helens’ win at Bradford Bulls. Experienced prop forward Paul Clough is set to make his first appearance of the season after recovering from injury.
Kallum Watkins continues at full-back for Leeds in the absence of Zak Hardaker as the Rhinos look to pick themselves up from their World Club Challenge defeat. Prop Richard Moore, who was 18th man against Melbourne, is in the reckoning, although fellow front rower Ryan Bailey has also been named in the 19-man squad despite undergoing knee surgery.
