Leeds v Huddersfield: Squads Announced

Leeds and Huddersfield have both announced their 21-man squads for Friday night’s fixture at the Totally Wicked Stadium (KO 8:15pm).

The Rhinos come into the game having had a two week break, after both their fixtures against Wakefield and Catalans were postponed for Covid-19-related reasons.

The Giants, meanwhile, suffered a heavy 54-6 defeat to St Helens last week with a depleted side that included several teenagers.
