Stevie Ward will captain the Leeds Rhinos following a year-ending injury to skipper Kallum Watkins.

Young forward Mikolaj Oledzki keeps his spot in the side after scoring his first try for Leeds at the Magic Weekend, whilst Jordan Lilley returns to the 19-man squad following his loan at Leigh Centurions.
