LEEDS RHINOS will be without both their senior half-backs for tonight’s final game of the season, at home to Leigh Centurions.

Player of the year Rob Burrow suffered a knee injury in the defeat at Huddersfield Giants four days ago and joins Danny McGuire (foot) on the sidelines. Centre Joel Moon could partner Jordan Lilley – who is hoping to be available after suffering head and knee wounds against Huddersfield – in the halves, though another option would be to switch Liam Sutcliffe there, with either Ashton Golding or Kallum Watkins slotting in at full-back. Prop Keith Galloway has undergone surgery after tearing an Achilles last Sunday.

Anthony Mullally and Ryan Hall could return from injury and academy duo Sam Hallas and Cameron Smith have been drafted into the squad, but Brett Delaney, Mitch Garbutt and Mitch Achurch remain on the casualty list. Leigh could recall Gareth Hock, Martyn Ridyard, Micky Higham, Reni Maitua, Danny Tickle, Gregg McNally, Greg Worthington and Josh Drinkwater. Ben Reynolds, Liam Hood, Cory Paterson, Brad Fash, Tom Spencer and Lewis Foster drop out.
