AT least one Warrington Wolves player is expected to make his Super League debut against Leeds Rhinos at Headingley on Friday night.

New recruit Anthony England is expected to replace Glenn Riley in the 17.

England, brought in from Featherstone Rovers last year while recovering from a shoulder reconstruction, sat out Thursday's season opener against St Helens but had featured in both pre-season friendlies against Leigh Centurions and Salford Red Devils.

Cumbrian prop Riley faces two to three weeks on the sidelines with a medial knee ligament strain, the result of attempting to prevent Saints front rower scoring a killer try at the start of the second half last Thursday.

So Wolves' head of cooaching and rugby Tony Smith, who revealed England felt some tightness in his groin ahead of the Saints clash, is planning to give the 27-year-old his break this week.
