Leeds Rhinos name 21-man squad for Super League semi-final against Wigan Warriors

There is no Harry Newman in Rohan Smith’s 21-man squad for this Friday night’s clash with the Wigan Warriors.

Smith had previously said that there was a possibility that the England international centre could make the squad.

However, this Friday night clash has come too soon for Newman even though Smith had said there was a possibility.

“Possibility on both Fusitu’a and Newman but not probable. Ash Handley will not be available,” Smith said.

Mikolaj Oledzki and halfback Aidan Sezer are also touch and go despite being included in the 21-man squad whilst forward Morgan Gannon will be ruled out due to concussion.

“Mikolaj has got an AC joint injury so he is touch and go,” Smith said.

“We will see how things settle in the next couple of days.

“We’re just letting him recover, I know at this stage he is a tough kid and I know he will want to play. We will assess with the medical team at this stage. He is not ruled out.

“There was only him and Aidan Sezer, he has got a little knee complaint so we will see how that has settled tomorrow. Morgan Gannon will be out due to the concussion.”

This is Leeds’ 21-man squad for the clash on Friday:

4 Liam Sutcliffe
6 Blake Austin
7 Aidan Sezer
8 Mikolaj Oledzki
9 Kruise Leeming
10 Matt Prior
