Jonny Lomax, Tommy Makinson, Alex Walmsley and Zeb Taia all return to Justin Holbrook's 19 man squad ahead of Friday night's Betfred Round 18 Super League clash with Huddersfield Giants, (kick off 7:45pm).
The influential quartet missed Sunday’s defeat at London Broncos, but all are straight back in along with young hooker Aaron Smith who replaces James Roby as he underwent surgery this week.
Lomax’s return means Richardson drops out of the 19, with Regan Grace, Matty Lees and Jack Welsby the others who miss out this week.
Holbrook will explain his squad selection in an interview which will be live on saintsrlfc.com shortly.
