Aaron Smith returns to Saints' 19 man squad in place of Matty Costello in the only change ahead of the Betfred Super League Play-off semi-final against derby rivals Wigan Warriors at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Friday.
Smith has been absent since playing a part in the win over Leeds Rhinos at Emerald Headingley in mid August, but he returns this week as Costello drops out of the initial squad in the only change following the win over Hull FC.
