The former New Zealand international was hurt during the Rhinos' 37-18 Stobart Super League defeat at Warrington eight days ago and will miss their Carnegie Challenge Cup semi-final against Wigan on July 14.

Ben Jones-Bishop is set to switch from the wing for Monday's re-arranged home game against Wakefield providing he comes through England Knights' match against Ireland.

Leeds coach Brian McDermott has named all 10 players involved in Sunday's three representative matches in his 19-man squad for Monday's fixture, which was postponed from earlier in the year to accommodate the World Club Challenge with Manly.

Wakefield are without newly-appointed captain Danny Kirmond after he damaged his cheekbone and eye socket in the Wildcats' recent 24-6 victory over London Broncos.
