The elusive Australian had been included in the 21-man provisional squad.

But the team sheet has been revealed for the game, and French is not in the squad. Instead, Zak Hardaker continues at full-back with forwards Liam Farrell and Willie Isa in the centre roles. Kick-off is 7.45pm.

Kyle Eastmond, back in Super League after a long career in union, will make his Leeds debut.
