SITALEKI Akauola has dropped out of the Wire squad for Sunday's Challenge Cup semi-final against Leeds Rhinos.

The prop will miss the game at the University of Bolton Stadium due to illness, with George King replacing him.

Wire squad: Kevin Brown, Mitch Brown, Josh Charnley, Daryl Clark, Mike Cooper, Bryson Goodwin, Chris Hill, Jack Hughes, George King, Toby King, Tom Lineham, Harvey Livett, Ben Murdoch-Masila, Declan Patton, Joe Philbin, Ben Pomeroy, Stefan Ratchford, Tyrone Roberts, Ben Westwood.

By contrast, the Leeds team is likely to be very different to the one that lost to Salford Red Devils last week.

Ex-Wire scrum-half Richie Myler is back from injury, as are Jack Walker, Ryan Hall, Jamie Jones-Buchanan, Brett Ferres and Anthony Mullally.

Mikolaj Oledski and Adam Cuthbertson are also back in contention having missed last week's game due to becoming fathers for the first time.

Rhinos squad: Ashton Golding, Tom Briscoe, Liam Sutcliffe, Ryan Hall, Joel Moon, Richie Myler, Adam Cuthbertson, Matt Parcell, Brad Singleton, Jamie Jones-Buchanan, Carl Ablett, Brad Dwyer, Anthony Mullally, Brett Ferres, Nathaniel Peteru, Ash Handley, Jack Walker, Mikolaj Oledski, Josh Walters.
