Kristian Woolf has named his squad for Thursday evening's return match up with Wakefield Trinity at the Halliwell Jones Stadium (kick off 7:45pm).
The boss has made just one change to his squad with young Loose Forward Jake Wingfield, who has also played at hooker and half back, called up for the first time. He replaces James Graham who is self isolating after coming into contact with someone with Covid-19.
Wingfield, 19, is another Saints Academy product who joined us from Blackbrook. He played 25 times for the Academy in 2018 scoring 5 times before then making 16 appearances last season, again crossing five times.
The 19 year old joined up with the first team squad at the start of the year, but suffered a serious ACL injury which ruled him out of any chance of featuring, but he is named in the senior squad for the first time this week.
