leeds rhinos could be unchanged for tonight’s visit of Hull KR.

Coach Brian McDermott’s initial squad includes the players who beat Huddersfield Giants last Saturday, plus Jamie Jones-Buchanan, who has been struggling with a hamstring problem and Liam Sutcliffe.

Brett Delaney (leg) is an injury doubt after limping out of last week’s game, but has been named in the initial 19. Kylie Leuluai and Tom Briscoe remain on the casualty list following shoulder surgery.

Also coming into contention are Josh Guzdek, Stephen Holker and Connor Robinson.
