Leeds Rhinos have suffered yet another injury blow with the news that Jamie Jones-Buchanan is expected to be out for at least ten weeks.

The experienced international forward suffered a knee injury during Sunday's defeat by the Huddersfield Giants.

The Rhinos are already missing nine regular first-teamers, with coach Brian McDermott forced to name five teenagers in the squad to play the Giants.

Fifteen of the 19-man squad had come through the club's academy system.
