Leeds Rhinos Women take on St Helens in the Betfred Women’s Super League semi-final this Sunday at Headingley as both sides attempt to progress to the grand final.
Forsell named an 18-man squad for the game after his team suffered two injuries in their last game against the York City Knights. England internationals Georgia Roche are out with a foot injury and Keara Bennett will not be available for this game with a concussion. Tasha Gaines, Sophia Williams and Elychia Watson are also ruled out with injury and Ella Johnson, Adaoha Akwiwu and Elle Frain are also unavailable for the Rhinos. Emma Lumley, who missed the game against York, is however on course to make a comeback after missing the last game.
The full squad is:
1. Caitlin Beevers sponsored by Systech IT Solutions
2. Tara Moxon sponsored by the Leeds Rhinos Players Association
3. Sophie Robinson
4. Fran Goldthorp sponsored by PICKUPS SELF STORAGE

Away, the Beevers can achieve two club milestones on Sunday. She can become the first player to score 50 tries for the club if she crosses over twice against the Saints, and she needs just six points to reach 200 points for the Rhinos.
Winger Sophie Robinson is just eight points away from scoring 100 points in the Betfred Women’s Super League. She has six tries to her name so far this season, including two consecutive tries against Wigan and Huddersfield.
Forward Hornby can achieve league and club milestones at Headingley.
In Betfred’s Women’s Super League, Hornby is six points away from reaching 50 points, while for the Rhinos she is two points away from reaching 50 club points.
Returning to action in 2022, Dannelle Anderson can also join Hornby with 50 Rhinos points.
The prop, who was part of the Rhinos’ inaugural team in 2018, is six points away from the milestone.
