Stevie Ward is set to return for Leeds on Thursday as the Rhinos face an unchanged Hull Kingston Rovers outfit.

Stevie Ward is set to make his first appearance since helping the Rhinos win the Betfred Super League Grand Final in October following shoulder surgery in the off-season and comes into replace Nathaniel Peteru, who has been ruled out through injury and joins Brett Ferres and Keith Galloway on the treatment table.
