Leeds v Catalans: Squads Announced

Leeds and Catalans have both announced their 21-man squads for Wednesday evening’s Super League fixture at Emerald Headingley Stadium (KO 6:00pm).

The Rhinos are in excellent form, having won their last three games, while the Dragons have only won one from four since the restart.

The game was due to be played as part of the UK Government’s pilot programme, where 1,000 fans would be welcomed back into the ground, however new restrictions mean it will again be played behind closed doors.

Leeds Rhinos

Similar to the other side who are in Challenge Cup action at the weekend, Leeds have made a raft of changes and could see up to eight players make their debuts. Jack Walker is back in contention following six months out with an ankle injury, while Cameron Smith has recovered from a broken jaw. Konrad Hurrell, Brad Dwyer, Bodene Thompson and Corey Hall are also included, after completing their self-isolation periods. Jack Broadbent, Jarrod O’Connor and Sam Walters are among the youngsters named, while Harvey Whiteley, who signed on a reserve contract earlier this year, is included for the first time since making his sole Super League appearance against Wigan in July 2017.

21-man squad: 1 Jack Walker, 4 Konrad Hurrell, 14 Brad Dwyer, 17 Adam Cuthbertson, 20 Bodene Thompson, 21 Rhys Evans, 22 Cameron Smith, 23 Callum McLelland, 24 Luke Briscoe, 26 Alex Sutcliffe, 27 Sam Walters, 30 Muizz Mustapha, 33 Jarrod O’Connor, 34 Jack Broadbent, 36 Corey Hall, 38 Liam Tindall, 39 James Harrison, 40 Brett Ferres, 41 Harvey Whiteley, 42 Levi Edwards, 43 Loui McConnell.

Catalans Dragons
