Widnes Vikings have recalled Papua New Guinea international Wellington Albert and named his brother Stanton in the squad for the first time. There are also call-ups for Ted Chapelhow, alongside twin brother Jay, and centre Ed Chamberlain, who has not played since representing Ireland in the World Cup. Loose forward Chris Houston starts a two-match ban for knocking over referee Phil Bentham.

Leeds Rhinos have recalled full-back Ashton Golding for the injured Jack Walker, and forwards Mitch Garbutt and Josh Walters replace Adam Cuthbertson and Stevie Ward, who were also injured in the World Club Challenge in Melbourne. Rhinos coach Brian McDermott has also drafted Mikolaj Oledzki and Ash Handley into his 19-man squad.
