Saints host fierce rivals Wigan at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Sunday night in a repeat of last year’s Grand Final. The Merseyside club are in hot pursuit of Catalans’ at the top of the Super League table whilst the Warriors have lost four games on the spin.
Kristian Woolf is able to recall both Jonny Lomax and Mark Percival to his 21-man squad after the former was forced to withdraw whilst on England duty. Josh Eaves and Sam Royle are the two players who drop out whilst Joel Thompson remains sidelined with a shoulder injury.
Adrian Lam is only able to name a 20-man squad for Sunday’s clash with prop Brad Singleton available for selection after his two-match suspension. Morgan Smithies misses out with an ankle injury picked up against Warrington last time out.
St Helens by 40 points.
