Salford captain back for Rhinos clash

Salford Red Devils captain Tommy Lee is a surprise inclusion in their 19-man squad to face Leeds Rhinos.

The club had stated last week that the hooker was set for four to six weeks on the sidelines with a knee injury, and missed their defeat to Wakefield on Saturday.

But he has been named in an otherwise 19-man squad to face the struggling Rhinos, with Carl Forster missing out.

The news will come as a huge boost to head coach Ian Watson, with Lee one of Salford’s most influential players going forward and most reliable in defence.

Salford’s 19-man squad to face Leeds: Carney, Dobson, Evalds, Flanagan, G Griffin, J Griffin, Jones, Kopczak, Krasniqi, Lannon, Lee, Murdoch-Masila, O’Brien, Sa’u, Sarsfield, Tomkins, J Walne, A Walne, Wood
