Leeds boss Richard Agar welcomes back Richie Myler, half-back Rob Lui and prop Ava Seumanufagai against Salford.

James Donaldson, Jack Walker and Cameron Smith all remain sidelined.

Salford could hand a debut to hooker Andy Ackers following his move from Toronto Wolfpack, while Kevin Brown is available again.

The Red Devils have not played since beating Hull FC on 9 August, as some players needed to quarantine after a Covid-19 outbreak at Hull.

Leeds have lost their past two games and are sixth in Super League, while ninth-placed Salford are on a two-game winning streak, achieving their first victories of the season either side of the restart.
