19-Man Squad

SAINTS have announced their 19-man squad for Saturday’s trip to Leeds Rhinos.

Gary Wheeler returns to the side after successfully coming through the Reserves’ win over Quins last week.

Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, 16. Paul Clough, 17. Gary Wheeler, 18. Matty Ashurst, 19. Andrew Dixon, 20. Jonny Lomax, 21. Shaun Magennis, 22. Jamie Foster, 25. Lee Gaskell.

Brian McDermott, Leeds’ Head Coach, will choose from:

1. Brent Webb, 2. Lee Smith, 4. Keith Senior, 5. Ryan Hall, 7. Rob Burrow, 9. Danny Buderus, 11. Jamie Jones-Buchanan, 12. Carl Ablett, 13. Kevin Sinfield, 14. Ali Lauitiiti, 15. Ben Cross, 17. Ian Kirke, 18. Luke Burgess, 19. Kallum Watkins, 20, Weller Hauraki, 21. Chris Clarkson, 22. Jay Pitts, 24. Paul McShane, **. Zak Hardaker.

The match kicks off at 5.45pm and the referee is Richard Silverwood.
