Double injury blow for Leeds, but duo return

It’s mixed news on the injury front for Leeds, as Stevie Ward and Keith Galloway make their return to the squad in place of Carl Ablett and Jimmy Keinhorst.

England international Ablett has been ruled out for at least two months due to a knee injury, while Keinhorst will sit out 10 to 12 weeks with hand ligament damage.

But prop Galloway is in Brian McDermott’s 19-man squad for the first time this season for the Good Friday clash with Hull, and Ward returns after missing six games.

Half-back Jordan Lilley is included following the conclusion of his loan spell at Bradford, as are dual-registered duo Mikolaj Oledzki and Jordan Baldwinson, who both featured for Featherstone last weekend.

Full-back Ashton Golding will have a late fitness test following the shoulder injury he sustained at Warrington.

Leeds: Golding, Briscoe, Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Galloway, Parcell, Cuthbertson, Jones-Buchanan, Ward, Sutcliffe, Delaney, Garbutt, Mullally, Baldwinson, Lilley, Oledzki.
