The Leeds Rhinos U16s return to action on Thursday night when they take on Bradford Bulls at Stanningley, kick off 7pm.

The Rhinos impressed on their return to competitive action last weekend as they ran riot against Huddersfield Giants, winning 52-0 after their summer break.

The side against Huddersfield was predominantly an Under 15 team and that is the case again this week with only loose forward Harry Georgiou from the older age group. Winger Rhys Greenhall will be hoping to continue his impressive form after a hat trick against the Giants in the second half whilst Joe Burton moves to full back from the centres to allow his Kippax team mate TJ Barton to return to the side.

Alex Donaghy, who is from Cramlington Rockets in the North East, scored two tries off the bench against Huddersfield and he retains his spot amongst the replacements.

The team in full is:

1 Joe Burton Kippax u15s
2 Rhys Greenhall Hunslet Warriors u15s
3 Oliver Peterkin Brighouse Rangers u15s
4 T J Barton Kippax u15s
5 Liam Tindall East Leeds u15s
6 Harry Anderson Kippax u15s
7 Jack Mallinson Stanningley u15s
8 Olly Adamson Kippax u15s
9 Oli Burton Kippax u15s
10 Joe Porter Brighouse Rangers u15s
11  Jacob Gannon Siddal u15s
12 Jay Haywood-Scriven (c) Dewsbury Moor u15s
13 Harry Georgiou Siddal u16s
