Team news: Hull KR v Leeds (Thurs)

Danny McGuire and Robbie Mulhern are set to return for Hull KR on Thursday, while Leeds will be without Richie Myler.

Rovers coach Tim Sheens has made two changes to his side that lost at St Helens last week. McGuire and Mulhern are set to return to face their former club. The pair replace youngsters Adam Rooks and Harry Bardle.

Dave Furner has made two changes to his Rhinos outfit that beat Castleford Tigers last time out. Myler [suspended] and Tom Holroyd [ankle] are ruled out through injury, but prop Adam Cuthbertson could return.

Furner has only named an 18-man squad for the game, while the club are waiting for the completion of paperwork before they can include forward Wellington Albert. The Papua New Guinea international is on trial with the Rhinos and will wear the number 36 shirt if he is cleared to play.

The televised Super League clash takes place at the KCOM Craven Park on Thursday, 7:45pm kick-off.
