Injuries are affecting Leeds Rhinos ahead of Warrington tie.

Leeds Rhinos once again have massive injury problems ahead of their Challenge Cup semi-final with Warrington on Sunday and will not name a side until late in the week (Rhinos 5/1 – To win the Challenge Cup).

The defending Betfred Super League Champions have had a miserable year which has seen them miss out on a top- eight finish and they will have to battle to keep their Super League status in the middle eights.

Their season could still be saved, though, with success in the Challenge Cup but injuries are once again taking their toll and Director of Rugby Kevin Sinfield has revealed he will not name his side to face Warrington until later in the week in the hope that some of his injured stars will be fit to feature.

Sinfield said: “Fingers crossed we’ll have a couple back, but we may not know until Wednesday or Thursday this week.

“We’re hoping Richie Myler will be back, there’s a slight chance Brett Ferres will be back, a slight chance Ryan Hall will be back.

“Jamie Jones has a slight chance again, but all the decisions will be made later on in the week.

“Some of them have had a run which is good.”

Warrington are favourites to win the semi-final at 2/5, with the Rhinos at 2/1 and the draw 25/1.

Sinfield has struggled with selection problems for the four games he has been in charge so far and instead he has had to select the players who are available and fit.

He told the Yorkshire Post: “Having been here just over three weeks, it has been exactly the same.

“We’ve not been able to solidify a team until sometimes game day. That’s just how it is at the minute. We work through it.”

Odds subject to change.
