Ryan Hall returns for Leeds ahead of London clash

Ryan Hall is set for a return to the Leeds Rhinos side, after he was named in their 19-man squad to face London Broncos this Friday.

Hall was absent for Leeds’ victory over Widnes last weekend, but could come straight back into the side following the absence of Joel Moon – who misses out due to the leg injury sustained last Friday. It would cap off a great week for Hall, who signed a new long-term contract with the club earlier this week.

Elsewhere in the squad, Jamie Peacock and Brett Delaney miss out on selection for the game against coach Brian McDermott’s former side. They are both replaced by Ian Kirke – who has beaten close-season rib surgery – and youngster Rob Mulhern, with the prop in line for a debut on Friday night.

Leeds 19-man squad to face London (Headingley Carnegie, Friday, 8pm): Hardaker, Jones-Bishop, Watkins, Hall, McGuire, Leuluai, Burrow, Aiton, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Ward, Bailey, Kirke, Clarkson, Achurch, Briscoe, Singleton, Mulhern.
