Jordan Baldwinson, Sam Hallas, Josh Jordan-Roberts, Jordan Lilley, Mikolaj Oledzki and Josh Walters have all been named in the squad for Sunday’s final pre-season game, at Doncaster.

They are also due to be among the substitutes when Rhinos visit Featherstone Rovers on Friday.

Other players could be drafted in for Sunday, if they get only limited game time at Big Fellas Stadium.
