LEEDS RHINOS’ squad for tonight’s final game of the regular First Utility Super League season will be selected from close to full-strength.

Danny McGuire has been named in the initial 19 after missing two matches due to a foot injury. Mitch Garbutt is available after a back problem kept him out of last Friday’s win over Wigan Warriors and only long-term casualty Stevie Ward is not in contention.

McGuire, however, is unlikely to feature in the matchday 17, but his squad selection is certainly a step in the right direction.

Former Leeds player Chris Clarkson drops out from the Hull KR team which lost at Hull last week, along with Iain Thornley and Mitch Allgood.

Kieran Dixon, Kevin Larroyer, James Green, John Boudebza and David Thompson are in line for a call-up.

Hull KR: from Sio, Mantellato, Dixon, Kelly, Walker, Lunt, Blair, Larroyer, Donaldson, Green, Tilse, Cockayne, Boudebza, Greenwood, Minns, Marsh, Lawler, Mulhern, Thompson.

Leeds Rhinos: from Sutcliffe, T Briscoe, Watkins, Moon, Hall, Lilley, Burrow, Galloway, Segeyaro, Singleton, Achurch, Ablett, Jones-Buchanan, Delaney, Ferres, Cuthbertson, Keinhorst, McGuire, Garbutt.

Referee: Robert Hicks (Oldham).

Kick-off: Tonight, 8pm.

Jamie Jones-Buchanan and Jordan Baldwinson hold Anthony Gelling.
