Kristian Woolf has named his first initial squad of the 2021 Betfred Super League season ahead of Friday's clash with Salford Red Devils at Emerald Headingley Stadium (6pm).
Woolf’s 21 man squad sees all the regular first teamers included apart from our 2020 Player of the Year, Morgan Knowles who is missing.
Knowles had surgery on his thumb in the off-season. Unfortunately, since then there’s been a slight complication with that surgery meaning he will miss a number of weeks.
Knowles’ omission could mean a spot in the starting 13 for a number of our new signings with Joel Thompson, Sione Mata’utia and Agnatius Paasi all named. However, Dan Norman misses out.
Full back Lachlan Coote is back in the squad after he was not risked in the friendly with Leigh due to a small knock.
Mark Percival came through that game unscathed and he is also named whilst Joe Batchelor is another who returns to the squad after sitting out the trial game.
