Wakefield Trinity v Leeds Rhinos: Golding could make injury return
First-choice full-back Ashton Golding could return from injury when Leeds Rhinos visit Wakefield Trinity on Saturday.
Golding has missed the past two games due to a hamstring problem, but is included in coach Brian McDermott’s initial 19-man squad for this weekend.
Stevie Ward is available after a one-game ban and only Jimmy Keinhorst and Brett Delaney remain on Rhinos’ casualty list.
Trinity are set to welcome back forwards Mitch Allgood and Dean Hadley.
Allgood has recovered from a broken arm and Hadley is in contention following a fractured cheekbone.
