Leeds Rhinos have been boosted by the return to fitness of Rob Burrow for Friday's meeting with engage Super League leaders Wigan Warriors.

Scrum-half Burrow missed the 31-22 victory at Salford last time out due to a jarred knee but has recovered sufficiently to take his place in Rhinos head coach Brian McClennan's initial 19-man squad for the Headingley clash.

Burrow replaces Ian Kirke, who is ruled out by a groin problem, while experienced duo Jamie Peacock and Keith Senior are also back after being rested for the Willows trip.

Defending champions Leeds currently sit fourth in the table but knocked Wigan out of the Challenge Cup with a 12-10 win when the sides last met at Headingley in May.

Prescott sidelined

Wigan have made just one change to their squad from those on duty for the 46-0 hammering of Hull FC on July 23.

Prop Paul Prescott misses out with a slight facial injury and is replaced by youngster Ben Davies.

The Warriors, who beat Leeds 24-4 at the DW Stadium in March, are still without long-term absentees Michael McIlorum (ankle), Amos Roberts (knee), Phil Bailey (achilles) and Eamon O'Carroll (groin).

Assistant coach Shaun Wane will again be in charge of Wigan at Headingley as Michael Maguire remains in his native Australia with his ill father.

Leeds squad: Webb, Donald, Delaney, Senior, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Buderus, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Lauitiiti, Sinfield, Bailey, Ablett, Burgess, McShane, Clarkson, Smith

Wigan squad: Gleeson, Carmont, Richards, S.Tomkins, Leuluai, Fielden, Riddell, Coley, Hansen, J.Tomkins, O'Loughlin, Paleaaesina, Deacon, Pryce, Mossop, Goulding, Farrell, Davies, Tuson
