Rob Burrow: Has not travelled to France to face Catalan Dragons

Leeds Rhinos are sweating over the fitness of influential half-back Rob Burrow ahead of their Challenge Cup final with Warrington next weekend.

Burrow is carrying a calf strain and has not travelled to France for Saturday's clash with the Catalan Dragons, with coach Brian McDermott admitting he is a concern for the Wembley showpiece.

"Rob has been left out as a precaution, but he's not right for the Challenge Cup final at this stage," he said.

"Hopefully the injury will continue to improve with treatment but it is not right at present."

The Rhinos are desperate for Burrow to be fit, especially in light of long-term half-back partner Danny McGuire being ruled out of the final earlier this week.
