Super League side down to 19 players

Sadly injuries are a part of sport.

That is true of rugby league more than any other it seems, perhaps due to the physicality of the sport.

In the last few years the vast majority of Super League teams have seemingly had to deal with plenty of injuries and are often dealing with the depths of their squads.

That is true of Salford Red Devils at the moment. Paul Rowley’s side head over to Wakefield Trinity this week with 20 players.

Exacerbating matters, the Red Devils are without three members of their spine with Brodie Croft, Marc Sneyd and Andy Ackers all absent.

But they don’t have it as bad as one club. That is the Leigh Leopards.

Adrian Lam has only been able to name a 19 man squad for this week, which is indeed better than last week when they named 19 players.

They have Zak Hardaker and Ava Seumanufagai back from suspensions but they are still missing Tom Nisbet and Kai O’Donnell through suspension.

O’Donnell is serving the second game of a huge six game suspension this week.

St Helens loanee Dan Norman could feature. Joe Wardle is still absent.

As for their opponents, Hull KR are boosted by the return of Ryan Hall from minor surgery.

Fouad Yaha features again after he dodged a ban for a high tackle last week against Wakefield Trinity which yielded a yellow card and a fine.
