GERMAN INTERNATIONAL Jimmy Keinhorst could be set to make his Old Trafford debut this evening, exactly six weeks after suffering Wembley heartbreak.

Keinhorst was left out of Leeds Rhinos’ Ladbrokes Challenge Cup winning side, after playing in the previous 12 games.

He suffered a facial injury in the following match against St Helens, but returned for last week’s semi-final win over the same opposition and is included in Rhinos’ initial 19-man squad for today’s First Utility Super League Grand Final.

Leeds’ side will be selected from the team named last week, plus Mitch Achurch, who has recovered from a hand injury and Josh Walters.

Wigan coach Shaun Wane has added Taulima Tautai and Anthony Gelling to the players who beat Huddersfield last week.

Leeds Rhinos: from Hardaker, Briscoe, Watkins, Moon, Hall, Sinfield, McGuire, Garbutt, Burrow, Leuluai, Ablett, Delaney, Cuthbertson, Peacock, Singleton, Keinhorst, Lilley, Achurch, Walters.

Wigan Warriors: from Bowen, Manfredi, Bateman, Gildart, Burgess, Williams, Smith, Crosby, McIlorum, Flower, Tomkins, L Farrell, O’Loughlin, Powell, Clubb, Mossop, Patrick, Gelling, Tautai.

Referee: Ben Thaler (Wakefield).

Kick-off: Today, 6pm.
