Carl Ablett, who injured an ankle against Warrington Wolves 10 days later, is also included and hamstring victims Joel Moon and Brett Delaney could feature after missing last Friday’s trip to Wigan Warriors.

Jimmy Keinhorst is sidelined after suffering a calf strain last week and Jordan Lilley, ever-present so far this year, drops out.
