Rhinos must cope without Walker

Rhinos must cope without Walker

Leeds Rhinos interim head coach Jamie Jones-Buchanan will have to do without star full-back Jack Walkers as his side look for revenge against Castleford Tigers (25/1 Grand Final Winner) on Bank Holiday Monday.

Walker suffered a hamstring injury during the 20-20 draw against Huddersfield Giants last time out and will miss the short trip to Castleford on Monday.

Jones-Buchanan will also have to do without the likes of Aidan Sezer (groin), Corey Johnson (knee) David Fusitu’a (knee), Harry Newman (hamstring), Liam Tindall (hip), Richie Myler (groin) and Tom Holroyd (ankle).

Leeds will be looking for revenge after 40-16 hammering at the hands of their West Yorkshire rivals Castleford in the Betfred Challenge Cup last month.

The traditional Bank Holiday Monday schedule will see all 12 Betfred Super League teams in action, with champions St Helens (10/11 Grand Final Winner) making the trip to an improving Huddersfield.

Frontrunners Saints have won seven of their eight league outings this season and face a Huddersfield side sat in fourth place in the standings.

Last season’s Grand Final runners-up Catalans (3/1 Grand Final Winner) are also on their travels as they face Salford Red Devils at the AJ Bell Stadium.

Toulouse will look for their second league win of the season when they host Hull KR, while Wigan welcome Wakefield Trinity to the AJ Bell Stadium.

All five of those games kick-off at 3pm, with the 5.30pm clash between Hull FC and Warrington Wolves wrapping up what is set to be another exciting round of Betfred Super League action.
