Morgan Knowles returns to Saints' 19 man squad ahead of our trip to Headingley to face a resurgent Leeds Rhinos side on Thursday whilst Joe Batchelor also comes in.
Knowles has missed the three victories over Halifax, Wakefield and Warrington after injuring a rib whilst captaining the side in our defeat to London back in round 23, but he returns to the 19 this week in place of Joseph Paulo who picked up a hamstring injury in the win over Warrington last weekend.
Batchelor hasn’t featured since the recent loss to London and he comes in for Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook who drops out.
Alex Walmsley (eye) and Lachlan Coote (knee) are still missing, whilst James Roby is also not quite 100% fit for Thursday night’s fixture and Justin Holbrook will reveal their chances of playing at Wembley on saintsrlfc.com shortly.
Saints travel to a Leeds Rhinos side who have won their last two Betfred Super League fixtures by an aggregate score of 92-8 after dominant wins over Huddersfield and Catalans.
