English champions Leeds Rhinos have a number of injury concerns ahead of round one of the Super League which may jeopardise their chances of claiming the World Club Challenge against the Melbourne Storm on February 16th at AAMI Park.
The Rhinos face Warrington this weekend and will be missing a number of stars and alarmingly all are forwards.
Veteran and former Wests Tigers prop Keith Galloway is missing due to an Achilles injury and he’s joined on the sidelines by fellow forwards Brett Ferres (knee) and Stevie Ward (shoulder).
Leeds enforcer Mitch Garbutt – a former Storm player himself – will play this weekend against the Wolves despite a cork in his leg.
It’s worrying times for Leeds and their pack as they prepare to take on the likes of Jesse Bromwich, Nelson Asofa-Solomona, Sam Kasiano and Tim Glasby.
