Jones-Bishop dropped as Hall set for 200th appearance

Leeds and England winger Ryan Hall is set to make his 200th appearance for the Rhinos this weekend after being named in their 19-man squad to face Wakefield at the Rapid Solicitors stadium on Sunday, in round four of the Challenge Cup.

Coach Brian McDermott has named a strong squad to face the plucky Wildcats, featuring Jamie Peacock, Kevin Sinfield and Tom Briscoe. Liam Sutcliffe is also included after returning from his loan spell at Bradford Bulls. Jamie Jones-Buchanan misses out with a bicep injury, while Paul Aiton is also ruled out through illness. Ben Jones-Bishop has been dropped.
