Leeds Rhinos v Huddersfield Giants: Super League preview
Leeds Rhinos have named an unchanged 19-man squad for Friday's West Yorkshire derby against Super League leaders Huddersfield Giants at Headingley.
The Rhinos bounced back from their World Club Challenge defeat against Melbourne Storm by beating St Helens 20-12 last week.
Prop Ryan Bailey, on the comeback trail after knee surgery, did not make the match-day cut against Saints but is ready to return and could replace Richard Moore, while Carl Ablett faces a late fitness test.
Huddersfield remain one point ahead of Wigan, Catalan and Warrington despite suffering their first defeat of the season last Sunday, a 43-18 reverse at home to Bradford.
Skipper Danny Brough is back after missing the the Bradford defeat through illness, which enables Scott Grix and Aaron Murphy to revert to their normal places at full-back and on the wing.
Back rower Dale Ferguson has been recalled from his loan spell at Hull KR and veteran prop Stuart Fielden takes the place of Anthony Mullally after being rested last week.
"Huddersfield started off the season like a house on fire and this was (always) going to be a big game," Leeds coach Brian McDermott told their official website.
"The fact that they've just had what they would say is a disappointing loss gives it an extra bit of spice."
Huddersfield did the league double over Leeds last season, including a 22-12 win at Headingley.
Leeds squad: Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, McShane, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Ward, Delaney, Bailey, Kirke, Clarkson, Achurch, Moore, Vickery
Huddersfield squad: Grix, Cudjoe, Wardle, McGillvary, Brough, Robinson, Crabtree, Lunt, Kopczak, Ferres, Faiumu, Patrick, Chan, Ta'ai, Murphy, Cording, Fairbank, Fielden, Ferguson
