Adam Cuthbertson will be back for Leeds on Friday, while Salford could bring Jack Littlejohn into the squad.

Leeds Rhinos’ director of rugby Kevin Sinfield has made one change to his side that beat Widnes Vikings last week. Cuthbertson replaces Anthony Mullally who drops out. Stevie Ward has been ruled out for the Rhinos after failing to recover from an ankle injury he suffered two weeks ago.

Ian Watson has made one change to his Salford Red Devils outfit that beat Toronto Wolfpack last time out. Littlejohn comes into the side, with Jackson Hastings and Luke Burgess serving suspensions.  Craig Kopczak has kept his place in the squad after not being named in the original 19-man squad last week.

The Qualifiers game takes place at Emerald Headingley on Friday, 7:45pm kick-off.

Rhinos 19-man squad: Tom Briscoe, Liam Sutcliffe, Joel Moon, Richie Myler, Adam Cuthbertson, Matt Parcell, Brad Singleton, Jamie Jones-Buchanan, Brad Dwyer, Jimmy Keinhorst, Brett Ferres, Nathaniel Peteru, Jack Walker, Cameron Smith, Mikolaj Oledzki, Josh Walters, Luke Briscoe, Dom Crosby, Jordan Thompson.
