If there’s been one club that’s been doing it tough with injuries this season, it’s Leeds Rhinos.
Richard Agar’s men had 11 players sat on the sideline through injury or suspension against Huddersfield at the weekend, but the tide may be starting to turn in their favour.
With Leeds sitting out the Challenge Cup quarter-finals this weekend, that has given Rhinos stars extra time to prepare for their home game against Wakefield Trinity next Friday.
Luke Gale has sat out four matches with a fractured thumb, but is expected to return as is Kyle Eastmond who was ruled out of the Huddersfield game with a hamstring tear, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
Rob Lui is said to be nearing the end of his recovery from a torn quad, whilst fellow halfback Callum McLelland’s return is hopefully in the “near future”.
Tom Holroyd is set to return at the end of May following a broken leg with Harry Newman available for selection the month after, though there is no timescale for Alex Sutcliffe. Cameron Smith and Jack Walker are still long-term injuries.
Richie Myler and Zane Tetevano remain suspended for the derby against Trinity, but will be available to face Hull the following weekend.
