Leeds Rhinos injury news and potential return dates after 9 miss out v Hull KR and 1 picks up knock

On the face of it, Leeds Rhinos have numerous injury concerns ahead of Betfred Super League round one, particularly in the pack. But is the situation really that bad?

Rhinos were without 10 members of their first team squad for James Donaldson’s testimonial match last Sunday - when they beat Hull KR 26-18 - and another picked up a knock during the game. With Leeds’ season kicking off on February 16, when Salford Red Devils visit AMT Headingley, that could be a concern.

However, none of the injuries is believed to be long-term and one player previously ruled out of the competitive opener could now be back in contention. Here’s a rundown of Rhinos’ injuries and when players are expected back on the field.
