FRONT-ROWER Brad Singleton is set to make his 100th appearance for Leeds Rhinos when they visit Huddersfield Giants tomorrow.

Singleton, 23, made his debut as a substitute in a 46-12 home win against Salford in March, 2011.

He made just one substitute appearance in each of his first two seasons before becoming a regular in the team during the 2013 campaign.

Rhinos could be unchanged tomorrow from the 32-0 win over Batley Bulldogs eight days ago. Boss Brian McDermott will select from the 17 players on duty last week, plus Joel Moon – who missed the Batley game due to a groin problem – and Ash Handley.

Danny McGuire (foot), Brett Delaney (knee) and Mitch Garbutt (calf) remain on the casualty list.

Giants’ Scott Grix, Tom Symonds, Kyle Wood and Ryan Brierley are all in contention for a recall.

Josh Johnson and Kruise Leeming drop out from the team which lost 48-40 at Leigh Centurions a week ago. Leeming has an ankle injury, but fears Oliver Roberts had suffered a broken jaw proved unfounded and he is set to keep his place.

Brad Singleton is held by Remi Casty and Justin Horo during last year's clash with Catalans Dragons at Headingley.
