Rhinos will be boosted by the return of up to three first-choice players with Zak Hardaker, Harry Newman and Liam Sutcliffe all set to return.

Coach Rohan Smith's biggest headaches are in the halves, with Blake Austin and Austin Sezer both still missing and at prop, where three of Leeds' four first-choice picks are unavailable.

Sam Walters, who has been filling in as a prop, picked up a knee injury in Toulouse last Saturday and that could mean a first - and possibly last - Leeds appearance for on-loan Wakefield Trinity 'middle' Yusuf Aydin.

Here's how Rhinos could line up.
