Kristian Woolf has named his first initial squad of 2021 ahead of Saturday's clash with Leigh Centurions in Tommy Makinson's Testimonial match at the Totally Wicked Stadium (kick off 6pm).
The boss has named a 28 man squad with most of the first teamers expected to get a run-out against the Super League newcomers as the Saints look to gain crucial match fitness ahead of the season opener.
New signings Joel Thompson, Sione Mata’utia, Agnatius Paasi and Dan Norman are all included and will likely make their first appearances in a Saints shirt. Mark Percival will also feature for the first time since his hamsring surgery, whilst Alex Walmsley is another who is included after off-season knee surgery.
The only two players who miss out are Lachlan Coote and Joe Batchelor who are not being risked after picking up small, minor knocks in training this week.
Both are expected to be fit and available for selection for the season opener against Salford.
