Leeds Rhinos vs Wigan Warriors: 21-man squads, injury news, kick-off time & TV details

Injury news

Leeds were without the likes of Blake Austin, Aidan Sezer, Zak Hardaker and Liam Sutcliffe last week after all four pulled up short due to injury and illness. As such, head coach Rohan Smith has named just a 20-man squad, but Hardaker and Sutcliffe have been named whilst Sezer and Austin surprisingly miss out once more. Wigan, meanwhile, are injury free following that incredible win over Hull FC last week with Mike Cooper potentially coming in for his debut after his move from Warrington Wolves yesterday.

Kick-off time

The game will kick off at 8pm on Thursday night at Headingley.

TV details

The game will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Arena from 7.30pm. Highlights will also be shown on Super League’s YouTube Channel as well as the Super League Show from next week.
