The two teams have already met once this season with Leeds coming out on top, with the Halliwell Jones Stadium the venue this time around. Salford eased past Hull FC in their only fixture since the restart, while the Rhinos are looking to bounce back after consecutive defeats.
Leeds have recalled Robert Lui who is taking on his former side, and Richie Myler to their 21-man squad, with Cameron Smith ruled out after fracturing his jaw in training.
Salford have recalled Ed Chamberlain, Kevin Brown, Gil Dudson, Greg Burke and Andy Ackers to their 21-man squad, with the latter in-line to make his debut for the club.
With Salford’s last Super League fixture having come almost three weeks ago, it’s difficult to know what shape the Red Devils will be in ahead of their clash with Leeds. The Rhinos have been poor in their last two outings but should bounce back to claim the points against Ian Watson’s men.
