Leeds trio set for return

Rob Burrow, Ali Lauitiiti and Luke Burgess are all set to return for the Rhinos as they travel to Hull KR this Friday night, kick off 8pm.

Burrow has not played since suffering a knee injury in the win over Wakefield at the Magic Weekend at the start of May whilst Lauitiiti has only made one appearance since suffering a calf tear in the build up to the Carnegie Challenge Cup Fourth round tie against Hull FC back in April.
Luke Burgess has recovered from an ankle injury that has kept him out for six weeks.

Unfortunately the Rhinos will travel to Craven Park without Danny Buderus and Greg Eastwood after both picked up injuries in the win over St Helens last Saturday, the extent of which will be known after the result of scans this week.

Danny McGuire needs two tries for a career total of 200 touchdowns. The half-back has scored 180 tries for Leeds and 18 in representative matches, including five Test tries for Great Britain. His 198 tries have come in 266 matches.

He has scored eight hat-tricks for Leeds, including a personal best of five in a match and two four-try feats. He was Super League’s joint top try-scorer in all club and representative matches in 2006 with 32.

A former East Leeds amateur, McGuire made his debut for Leeds as a substitute in a 56-6 Super League home defeat of Salford City Reds on July 6 2001. He made one more substitute appearance that season before starting his first senior game at stand-off in a 28-34 Super League defeat at Widnes Vikings, scoring a try on June 22 2002.
