Leeds are without three of their forward pack against Hull KR while Ryan Lannon returns for the Robins after a lengthy layoff.

David Furner has been forced into three changes following their narrow defeat to Wakefield. Brett Ferres (knee), Wellington Albert (concussion) miss out through injury, while Nathaniel Peteru is suspended. They are replaced by Adam Cuthbertson, Jack Walker and Cameron Smith.

Tim Sheens’ has made five alterations to his 19-man squad following Monday’s heavy defeat at home to Warrington. Antoni Maria is in line to make his debut after arriving at the club on-loan in midweek. He is joined by Ryan Shaw, Danny McGuire, Junior Vaivai and Ryan Lannon, who returns after 10 weeks out with an ankle injury. They take the place of Chris Atkin, Tommy Lee, Lee Jewitt, Harry Bardle and Owen Rooks.

Messenger’s money-maker: Will Danny McGuire come back to haunt the Rhinos? He is 9/2 to score anytime.
