Leeds Rhinos vs Hull FC: Team news and injuries as new signing absent again for Rohan Smith’s side

LEEDS RHINOS host Hull FC on Friday night hoping to back up their big 18-17 win over Huddersfield Giants last weekend.

Hull, meanwhile, could not have played much worse against local rivals Hull KR, who ran out 40-0 winners at the MKM Stadium.

This is a re-run of the Round Two clash which saw the Black and Whites run out winners – the last time they registered two points in Super League.

Team news and injuries

James Donaldson and Sam Walters return to Rohan Smith’s 21-man squad after featuring for Bradford Bulls on dual-registration on Monday. However, there is still no place for Derrell Olpherts after he missed last week’s game against Huddersfield Giants.

Hull will be without the banned Kane Evans and Mitieli Vulikijapani whilst Jamie Shaul and Jake Clifford will miss this game through injury. Tex Hoy is still out too. Andre Savelio, Joe Lovodua, Cam Scott and Harvey Barron are included by Tony Smith.
