Sinfield: Swift return

Leeds captain Kevin Sinfield has been given the all clear to return to action for the Rhinos clash with Huddersfield after a scan revealed no damage to his knee.

Sinfield was carried off the field during Friday's dramatic 23-22 Super League defeat at Wigan and initial fears were that he had suffered serious damage.

However, treatment over the weekend and a scan on Tuesday have cleared the 27-year-old England international to play against the Giants at Headingley Carnegie on Friday.

The Rhinos will also welcome back New Zealand international Clinton Toopi, who has not played since dislocating his shoulder in the Carnegie World Club Challenge win over Melbourne Storm back in February.

Commenting on his return, Toopi said: "The shoulder is not an issue at all. I have been doing a bit of ruck work this week and it didn't bother me at all - it is like having a new shoulder."

Thorman cleared

Giants have been handed a double selection boost ahead of their tough trip across Yorkshire with the news that both Chris Thorman and fellow half-back Luke Robinson are available.

Skipper Thorman was cleared of biting Bradford Bulls full-back Michael Platt during the Giants' 25-24 Super League victory on Sunday.

As a result of the decision by the RFL disciplinary committee, 27-year-old Thorman is free to lead his side out at Headingley on Friday night.

Also back in the fold for the Giants is influential 24-year-old Robinson after he has completed his recovery from an eye injury.

The return of Robinson is set to give joint caretaker coaches Paul Anderson and Keiron Purtill a welcome selection headache as the Giants look to record back-to-back Super League fixtures for the first time since March.

Rhinos: Webb, Donald, Toopi, Senior, Smith, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Diskin, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ellis, Sinfield, Lauitiiti, Bailey, Ablett, Hall, Burgess, Allan.

Giants: Thorman, Aspinwall, Elford, Whaturia, K. Brown, Robinson, Raleigh, Wild, Jones, Jackson, Mason, Snitch, Griffin, Hudson, Hemingway, Cudjoe, Lawrence, Jensen, Kirmond.
