Leeds v Wigan: Predicted line-ups and late injury news

It’s the first game of round three as Leeds take on Wigan at the Emerald Headingley Stadium. But just how will each side line up?

Kyle Eastmond is set to make his Rhinos debut as one of two changes to the 21. He replaces captain Luke Gale, who will miss several weeks with a broken thumb, while teenager Levi Edwards comes in for King Vuniyayawa who is unavailable due to concussion protocols. Zane Tetevano has been ruled out for the next four games after striking St Helens’ Theo Fages late. Bevan French makes his return to the side after proving his fitness following a delayed return to the club after the off-season. He replaces Liam Byrne, who will serve a one-match ban for dangerous contact against York.

Wigan overcame York in the Challenge Cup whilst a brave Leeds went down to St Helens.
