Willie Isa also returns to the squad after missing the Challenge Cup semi-final against St Helens.

On the 33-year-old’s absence at Elland Road, Peet said: “He could play, but the last time he did it set him back a few weeks, so we have to be careful that he’s 100 percent recovered for when we put him back into action.”
