The marquee prop recruit, who aggravated a hip injury in the Super League opener against Warrington a month ago, has been named in the 21-man squad.

If he returns then Adrian Lam will need to either leave out one of the props from last week - Tony Clubb, Ollie Partington, Liam Byrne, Joe Bullock or Mitch Clark - or halfback Harry Smith, who came off the bench in the 26-12 win over Hull FC.
