Danny Paul returns from injury

Leeds Carnegie Head Coach Diccon Edwards has made three changes to his side for this Friday’s massive clash with Rotherham Titans at Headingley Carnegie, kick off 8pm.

All three changes come in the front row with USA international Mike MacDonald returning to the starting line up after playing the second half last week at Esher, skipper Andy Titterrell starting at hooker and David Young coming in at tight head prop.

On the bench there is a welcome return from injury for Danny Paul, the club’s longest serving player, who is set to make his first appearance of the season after recovering from a hip and Achilles injury.
