Calderwood given his chance at Quins

The former Test wingman Mark Calderwood could get the chance to play for his career tomorrow night – on the ground where it all started.

The GB and England flyer has been on a month's trial at Harlequins after being released by Hull, but did not play in either of their Super League games so far. Now, with his month coming to an end, he has been drafted into Quins' squad to face Leeds at Headingley.

Calderwood comes into the reckoning in place of Lamont Bryan, for a contest that will put the winners on top of the table with the current leaders Castleford idle. His hope is that he can persuade Quins to extend his trial.

Leeds will be without the centre Brett Delaney, who is likely to be out for six weeks with an ankle injury. Carl Ablett is sidelined for three weeks with a knee problem.

Wigan's World Club Challenge match against St George Illawarra is to be refereed by the Frenchman Thierry Alibert.

The England captain, James Graham, will return to the St Helens front row for tomorrow night's game against Warrington – the first at their temporary home at Widnes. Graham missed last Friday's win at Salford with a sore shoulder.
