LONG-TERM CASUALTY Liam Sutcliffe will return from injury when Leeds Rhinos face Bradford Bulls in Carl Ablett’s testimonial game on Sunday.

Sutcliffe, expected to take over from Kevin Sinfield as Rhinos’ first-choice stand-off this year, has not played since suffering a serious knee injury last June.

He has been named among the substitutes for the Headingley clash, but there is still no place for injured recruit Anthony Mullally.

Brett Ferres is set to make his first home appearance for Rhinos against the club where he started his career. He has also been named among the substitutes.

Rhinos’ team is: Hardaker, Briscoe, Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Galloway, Falloon, Cuthbertson, Delaney, Ablett, Singleton. Subs Sutcliffe, Garbutt, Keinhorst, Achurch, Walters, Handley, Golding, Lilley, Ferres.
