LEEDS RHINOS winger Ash Handley has been named in two different clubs’ squad for this weekend.

Handley, who will turn 20 on Tuesday, has been drafted into Rhinos’ initial squad for tomorrow’s First Utility Super League trip to Widnes Vikings.

And he has also been named in Featherstone Rovers’ 19 for their home game against Batley Bulldogs on the same day, after making his debut for the Kingstone Press Championship outfit as a dual-registration player last week.

Full-back Ashton Golding is also in contention for Rhinos, along with second-row Josh Walters.

Hooker Beau Falloon has not yet recovered from the broken toe which kept him out of last week’s Super League opener against Warrington Wolves.

Danny McGuire suffered a knee injury in that game and joins Jamie Jones-Buchanan and Stevie Ward on the long-term casualty list.

Widnes are without winger Patrick Ah Van from the team which won at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats six days ago.

Stefan Marsh, MacGraff Leuluai and Matt Whitley are all hoping for a call-up.

Rhinos full-back Zak Hardaker needs one try to reach 100 in his career for Leeds, Featherstone Rovers, England Knights and England.

Kallum Watkins will be aiming to extend his try-scoring run against Widnes to six games.
