Leeds' veteran prop Kylie Leuluai is set to feature for Championship side Hunslet when they travel to Leigh on Sunday.

Rhinos veteran Leuluai, a member of their Grand Final-winning team in October, and fellow front-rower Richard Moore both sat out the Super League opener against Hull last Friday.

They are the latest Leeds players to be dual registered with the Hawks and will join up with the squad ahead of this weekend, along with hooker Liam Hood.

Three-quarter Jimmy Keinhorst, who scored two tries on his Hunslet debut in Sunday's win over Barrow, has been recalled by Leeds to replace winger Joe Vickery, who injured an ankle on his debut against Hull.

Leeds coach Brian McDermott said: "Both Kylie and Richard have had very little game time so far this season after operations in the close season and they will not be in contention for Sunday's game at Castleford.

"The dual-registration process allows them to join up with a confident Hunslet squad after their great win over Barrow last week.

"In return we are able to bring Jimmy Keinhorst, ready to go after his run-out last week."
