Brian McDermott has named Kylie Leuluai and Ryan Bailey as part of his 19 man squad Sunday’s trip to Wakefield.
Unfortunately the Rhinos will be without Ali Lautitiiti (calf strain), Lee Smith (hamstring) and Zak Hardaker, who was ruled out earlier in the week.
Leuluai is looking forward to getting back into action on sunday after recovering from his pectoral injury. The New Zealand prop is expected to feature against the Wildcats in this Sunday’s clash at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium.
Kylie commented “I am pleased to be back. No one wants to be out injured but it has been really tough especially with the amount of props we have had out. I have never known anything like it in one position, it has been really strange. But I am back this week along with Ryan and hopefully we will get a few more bodies back on board in the coming weeks.”
The full 19 man Rhinos squad is:
11 Jamie Jones Buchanan
12 Carl Ablett
15 Ben Cross
16 Ryan Bailey
17 Ian Kirke
18 Luke Burgess
22 Jay Pitts
24 Paul McShane
