PROP Kyle Amor, who has been on loan with Wakefield Trinity Wildcats throughout 2011, has been called into Leeds Rhinos’ 19-man squad for Friday’s Super League play-off at Huddersfield Giants.

Unfortunately for Amor, he is unlikely to break into the matchday 17 after fellow forward Ryan Bailey had his one-match suspension overturned by the Rugby League disciplinary panel on Wednesday.

If, however, Amor gets the nod, the fixture could involve no fewer than seven former Wakefield players.

Leeds forward Jay Pitts is included in Brian McDermott’s 19-man squad, while Huddersfield’s first-team regulars include ex-Cats Scott Grix, Danny Brough, Darrell Griffin, Keith Mason and Dale Ferguson.

Huddersfield (from): Grix, Lawrence, Cudjoe, Gilmour, Brown, Brough, Crabtree, Robinson, Griffin, Fa’alogo, Faiumu, Mason, Patrick, Horne, McGillvary, Fairbank, Wardle, Sarsfield, Ferguson.

Leeds (from): Webb, Delaney, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Buderus, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Sinfield, Lauitiiti, Bailey, Kirke, Hauraki, Clarkson, Pitts, Jones-Bishop, Amor, Hardaker.
