Leeds Rhinos are likely to be unchanged against Crusaders in Friday's engage Super League encounter in Wrexham.

The Rhinos beat Hull KR 44-14 last time out and coach Brian McClennan has named the 17 on duty that day along with Ali Lauitiiti and Chris Clarkson in his 19-man cut for the trip to north Wales.

Leeds second rower Weller Hauraki will get the chance to face his former employers for the first time.

Rhinos captain Kevin Sinfield, meanwhile, needs seven points to overtake ex-Wigan skipper Andy Farrell as the second highest scorer in Super League history.

The loose forward has amassed 2,370 points over 14 seasons at Headingley through 52 tries, 1,071 goals and 20 drop goals.

Super League's all-time leading scorer is Wigan half-back Paul Deacon, who is still going strong with 2,395.

Crusaders recall centre Gareth Thomas in place of second rower Hep Cahill, who is rested.

Former Leeds utility back Jordan Tansey continues to deputise at scrum-half in the absence of Rhys Hanbury, while Paul Johnson and Peter Lupton are both vying for spots after being left out against the Dragons last week.

Crusaders squad: Schifcofske, Thomas, Martin, Mellars, Reardon, Witt, Sammut, O'Hara, Withers, Bryant, Chan, Winternstein, James, Flower, Kear, White, Johnson, Lupton, Tansey

Leeds squad: Webb, Smith, Delaney, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Buderus, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Lauitiiti, Bailey, Kirke, Hauraki, Clarkson, McShane, Hardaker
