Shaun Lunt: Could make his debut for Leeds after joining on loan
Shaun Lunt could make his Leeds debut after being included in the Rhinos' 19-man squad to face Catalan Dragons on Friday.
The Huddersfield hooker joined Leeds on loan for the rest of the season on Wednesday and is set to get straight into the action with his new club during the contest at Headingley.
Paul McShane makes way from the squad that secured a 38-18 win over Wakefield in the Carnegie Challenge Cup last time out.
The other change made by Leeds head coach Brian McDermott from that fixture sees Stevie Ward, who did not make the match-day selection, replaced by Richard Moore.
Prop Moore has been out of action since the end of March with an ankle injury but is now fit enough for a recall to the squad.
Rob Burrow is named in the initial squad to face the Dragons despite suffering a suspected fractured cheekbone against the Wildcats last Friday.
Catalan make one change to the 19-man squad that defeated Hull KR in the Challenge Cup on Sunday, with Thomas Bosc returning from injury to replace Eloi Pelissier.
Dragons head coach Trent Robinson is still without the likes of Clint Greenshields, Damien Blanch, Greg Mounis and Frederic Vaccari, who are all injured.
The French side, who stayed in England during the week after their visit to Hull, can go level on points with Huddersfield at the top of the Stobart Super League table with victory on Friday.
The Catalans will also be hoping to break their Headingley duck having beaten every Super League team away from home apart from Leeds and newcomers Widnes
"I've only been there the once. I'm hoping it's a good chance," Robinson said.
"We're in pretty good form, although we'll need to take our best footie on to the park at Leeds.
"In the last year and a half we've brought a bit of credibility to the club and the team but this is a test we probably haven't passed yet in the competition.
"We want to do really well against Leeds and, if that means we go top, that's good but we won't be doing cartwheels.
"It would mean a lot to supporters and people at the club but less to the playing group.
"Leeds are not yet firing on all cylinders but they're world champions and a class team - everybody wrote them off last year and look what happened. We're preparing for a great Leeds performance."
Leeds squad: Webb, Jones-Bishop, Hardaker, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Peacock, Ablett, Sinfield, L. Smith, Delaney, Bailey, Kirke, Clarkson, Griffin, Moore, Hood, Lunt.
Catalan squad: Pryce, Sa, Stacul, Bosc, Dureau, Ferriol, Henderson, Casty, Menzies, Anderson, Raguin, Millard, Simon, Fakir, Paea, Baitieri, Duport, Fisher, Cardace.
