Full-back Zak Hardaker is set to return to the Leeds side for Sunday's clash with Warrington at Headingley after recovering from a thumb injury.

Hardaker has been out of action since suffering a fracture against Salford back in Super League round two. He replaces Joe Vickery, who has been ruled out with a hamstring injury.

The Rhinos are also without combative prop Ryan Bailey, who begins a four-match suspension following his sending-off in last week's win at Catalan, but forward Kylie Leuluai returns to the squad.

Brett Delaney and Ian Kirke both came off with injuries against the Dragons and are doubtful, although the pair are named in the Rhinos' 19-man squad.

Recall

Warrington recall winger Chris Riley and hooker Mickey Higham, who were both rested against London on Easter Monday.

Back-rower Tyrone McCarthy is back in contention for a place after being named in the Wolves' 19-man squad.

Sunday's game is a repeat of last year's Challenge Cup final and Grand Final and with just two points separating the sides in the table, Wolves boss Tony Smith is expecting another close encounter against his former club in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Smith told the Warrington club website: "They pose some threats to us and we pose threats to them as well. It should be a good contest like we've had in the past.

"Sometimes we've gone there and done well but we've also been on the other end of it as well. But that's all memories - it's what we do on Sunday evening that counts and hopefully it will be a good one for us this week."

Leeds squad: Hardaker, Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, McShane, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Ward, Delaney, Kirke, Clarkson, Achurch, Moore, Singleton

Warrington squad: Atkins, Bridge, Carvell, Cooper, Currie, Grix, Harrison, Higham, Hill, Hodgson, McCarthy, J Monaghan, M Monaghan, Myler, Ratchford, Riley, Waterhouse, Westwood, Wood
