Team news: Leeds v Hull (Sun)

Leeds welcome Hull to Headingley on Sunday in a game that Hull KR fans will want neither side to win.

The Rhinos saw their mini-revival brought to a halt by the Robins last week as the battle at the bottom of Super League took another twist.

They are without Richie Myler through suspension, but do welcome back prop Brad Singleton following a ban of his own.

Youngster Callum McLelland has been drafted in to the squad, while Nathaniel Peteru returns having not played since Magic Weekend due to a fractured cheekbone.

Hull have made just one change to the team that beat London last week, with Jordan Lane coming in for Kieran Buchanan.

Gareth Ellis sat out that game with an eye injury, but is included in the squad again and could return to face his former club.

There is no Albert Kelly, who has a hamstring injury, and he joins Andre Savelio (foot), Matty Dawson-Jones (knee), Jack Logan (elbow) and Jack Sanderson (shoulder on the sidelines).

Gordon’s gamble: Harry Newman is 14/1 to celebrate his new Rhinos deal with the first try.

Leeds 19-man squad: Walker, Briscoe, Hurrell, Handley, Cuthbertson, Singleton, Merrin, Dwyer, Sutcliffe, Ferres, Peteru, Smith, McLelland, Donaldson, Newman, Seumanufagai, Lunt, Lui, Martin.

Hull 19-man squad: Shaul, Faraimo, Tuimavave, Griffin, Sneyd, Taylor, Houghton, Bowden, Hadley, Minichiello, Westerman, Connor, Green, Fash, Manu, Lane, Paea, Naulago, Ellis.

Another tight one to call, Hull priced at 5/6 for the win, with Leeds 11/10 to ease their relegation worries
