Singleton ready to return

Leeds forward Brad Singleton says he’s raring to go after completing his six-match suspension.

Singleton was banned for elbowing Catalans’ Greg Bird during March, but is back in the Rhinos’ squad for Friday’s Ladbrokes Challenge Cup game against Doncaster.

“The hardest part is just watching the team, whether they win or lose,” Singleton told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“You just want to be part of it. If they are losing you want to be a part of it to see if you can do anything about it and if they are winning you want to be a part of it because that’s why you play the game.

“To go to training and not be too attached to the previews and reviews is really frustrating. I’m glad it’s done now and I am ready for Doncaster.”

The visitors have won three out of five games in League 1 this season, but Singleton insists the Rhinos will not underestimate their opponents.

“We have to treat it like we did the middle-eights last year, when we played the likes of Featherstone and London,” Singleton added.

“You probably have to give them more respect because they are doing it tough. They are in the lower leagues, probably getting paid less than us and they have a full-time job as well.

“You have got to respect them for that. They have got a strong pack and some big lads.”
