Hull KR welcome back Shaun Briscoe for the visit of defending engage Super League champions Leeds Rhinos on Friday and will also hand a professional debut to teenage loan signing Josh Charnley.

Briscoe, who returned to training this week after a leg problem, is expected to take over from Ben Cockayne at full-back.

Charnley has been drafted in from league leaders Wigan to provide cover in the centres for Michael Ratu and Jake Webster, who are expected to miss the rest of the season with shoulder and hip injuries respectively.

The 19-year-old, who travelled with the Warriors' first-team squad for their game against Catalans Dragons in France on July 4 but did not play, has scored hat-tricks in his last two reserve team fixtures.

Playmaker Scott Murrell and second rower Jason Netherton return from injury as seventh-placed Rovers look to continue the form that has seen them string together a three-game unbeaten run.

They demolished Wakefield 46-14 at Belle Vue last time out and Morgan feels his side are playing well enough to add the scalp of the resurgent Rhinos.

"We set a very high standard against Wakefield last weekend so it's up to us to put in the same against Leeds," said Morgan.

"They are a tough side - the reigning champions - so we know what to expect. I'm aiming for the win though and I believe we can get it."

Burrow resurfaces

The Rhinos, who have won seven of their last eight Super League matches, are boosted by the return to fitness of Rob Burrow, Ali Lauitiiti and Luke Burgess.

Scrum-half Burrow has been sidelined for the last two months by a knee injury, second rower Lauitiiti has made just one appearance since April due to a calf tear and prop Burgess is back after a six-week lay-off with an ankle problem.

But Leeds will be without hooker Danny Buderus and back rower Greg Eastwood at New Craven Park.

Both players damaged knee ligaments in the 28-24 win over St Helens, meaning they join Brent Webb, Kylie Leuluai, Matt Diskin and Kallum Watkins on the sidelines.

Hull KR squad: Cockayne, Latus, Briscoe, Mariano, Netherton, Clinton, Dobson, Vella, Hodgson, Wheeldon, Newton, Galea, Fox, Taylor, Watts, Cook, Fisher, Murrell, Lovegrove, Charnley

Leeds squad: Donald, Delaney, Senior, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Lauitiiti, Sinfield, Bailey, Kirke, Ablett, Burgess, Pitts, Ambler, McShane, Clarkson, Smith
