Leeds and Melbourne reveal squads

Leeds and Melbourne have named their 19-man squads for Friday’s PROBIZ World Club Challenge at Headingley.

There is a welcome return to the Rhinos squad for Joe Vickery, who suffered an ankle injury on his debut against Hull three weeks ago.

The Super League champions are, however, without Zak Hardaker (thumb), Ryan Bailey (knee) and Ben Jones-Bishop through injury, but do welcome back Jamie Peacock and Brett Delaney, who both missed last week’s win over Salford.

Melbourne’s starting line-up includes Australia and Queensland captain Cameron Smith, Kangaroos Cooper Cronk and Billy Slater and England stand-off Gareth Widdop. A bench of six will be whittled down to four on Friday.

Leeds 19-man squad: Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, McShane, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Ward, Delaney, Kirke, Clarkson, Achurch, Moore, Keinhorst, Vickery.

Melbourne squad: Slater, Fonua, O’Neill, Chambers, Waqa, Widdop, Cronk, J Bromwich, Smith, Norrie, Harris, Hoffman, Hinchcliffe. Subs (from): Ryles, Finch, Vave, Moors, K Bromwich, Setu
