Prop Lima fit for Storm clash

Melbourne prop Jeff Lima has been passed fit for rugby league's World Club Challenge against Leeds on Sunday (Monday AEDT).

Lima made the trip to England under a cloud with a hamstring injury, but recovered, only to miss last week's warm-up match against London side Harlequins with a bruised foot, suffered when he was trodden on at training.

He was named in the Storm team to take on the three-time defending Super League champions at Elland Road.

Yorkshire-raised Gareth Widdop, who impressed against Harlequins, was overlooked for a spot on the bench in favour of Rory Kostjasyn.

Test hooker Cameron Smith was named at halfback, as expected, to cover for the injured Cooper Cronk.

Deputy rake Ryan Hinchcliffe moved into Smith's favoured position.

Leeds named centre Brett Delaney in their side after the Australian recovered from a knee injury that has kept him out of two Super League matches.

Compatriot Danny Buderus was named on the Rhinos' bench.
