BIG PROP Anthony Mullally is poised to return against one of his former clubs when Leeds Rhinos visit Wakefield Trinity on Sunday.
Mullally suffered concussion in the Good Friday draw at Huddersfield Giants and sat out Rhinos’ 20-0 Easter Monday win over Salford Red Devils.
He has been named in Leeds’ 19-man squad for this weekend, along with centre/stand-off Liam Sutcliffe.
He has not played since suffering a foot injury in the defeat at Widnes Vikings on February 25.
Second-rower Jamie Jones-Buchanan is back in contention after being rested against Salford.
Brett Delaney – who played out of position at prop in the Salford game – drops out due to a hamstring “niggle” and there is no place in the initial squad for fit-again centre Jimmy Keinhorst, who was 18th man on Monday.
Front-rowers Adam Cuthbertson (hand), Mitch Garbutt (knee) and Nathaniel Peteru (biceps) all remain on the injury list, along with full-back Jack Walker who missed the win over Salford after damaging an ankle against Huddersfield three days earlier.
The derby will be Joel Moon’s 150th Leeds game and skipper Kallum Watkins’ 200th Super League appearance, all for Rhinos.
Former Leeds man Ben Jones-Bishop is set to return for Wakefield, along with fellow winger Tom Johnstone and captain Danny Kirmond.
Mason Caton-Brown drops out from the team beaten 27-26 at Hull on Monday.
Trinity are still without injured props David Fifita and Anthony England, along with full-back Scott Grix and scrum-half Liam Finn, who has a broken finger.
