Delaney makes Rhinos return

Leeds will welcome back forward Brett Delaney in Friday’s clash against Super League champions Wigan at Headingley.

Delaney, 31, missed last week’s win over Huddersfield with a groin injury, and comes in for Jordan Baldwinson, who has been made available for Featherstone on dual-registration.

Head Coach Brian McDermott told the club’s official website: “It is good to have Brett back available this week. Jordan has done a great job in the last few weeks and he will continue his development with Featherstone Rovers this weekend.” 

Delaney has made four appearances this season, including one for Featherstone.

Injury hit Wigan are boosted by the return of three players – Liam Farrell, Oliver Gildart and Ryan Sutton.

Anthony Gelling and Ben Flower have also been cleared to play having suffered knocks in the defeat to Hull last weekend.

Leeds 19-man squad: Goldin, Briscoe, Watkins, Moon, Hall, Burrow, Parcell, Cuthbertson, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sutcliffe, Delaney, Garbutt, Keinhorst, Ferres, Mullally, Walters, Handley.

Wigan 19-man squad: Clubb, Davies, Escare, Farrell, Flower, Forsyth, Gelling, Gildart, Gregson, Isa, Leuluai, Marshall, Navarrete, Nuuausala, Powell, Sutton, Tautai, Tomkins, Williams.
