Wigan have made four changes to their side for Friday, while Jack Walker is set to return for Leeds.

Leeds interim coach Richard Agar has made just one change to the Leeds squad that beat Wakefield last time out. Wellington Albert replaces Ashton Golding.

Full-back Jack Walker is set to return for the Rhinos after missing last week’s win over Trinity through injury.

Adrian Lam has made four changes to his Wigan team that won at Hull KR last weekend. Zak Hardaker (hamstring), Ben Flower (back), Jake Shorrocks and Taulima Tautai drop out of the side.

Morgan Escare, Romain Navarrete, Jarrod Sammut and Liam Byrne come into the Wigan squad.

The televised Super League match takes place at Emerald Headingley on Friday night, 7:45pm kick-off.
