Squad for Tigers trip includes host of potential debutants

Saints boss Kristian Woolf has included a number of potential debutants in his 21 man squad ahead of the Betfred Super League Round 10 trip to face Castleford Tigers on Friday (kick off 8pm) live on Sky Sports.

After an energy-sapping Easter Weekend which has seen Saints pick up maximum points after wins against Wigan and Huddersfield, the boss has opted to shuffle is pack due to a mix of suspensions, injuries and fatigue.

Ahead of Friday’s clash with the Tigers at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle nine new faces are included in Woolf’s 21 man squad.

Potential debutants include, back-rower Lewis Baxter who along with winger Jumah Sambou are academy graduates and both are included in the squad alongside new signing Danny Hill – a utility back from Widnes. All three have been part of England’s National Academy Performance Squads.

Fellow Academy graduates Taylor Pemberton who was handed first team squad number 31 is included alongside Reserve team player Daniel Moss, who can play at full back or half back. Both have represented England Youth sides.

Reserves centre Rio Osaywanbo Corkill, plus Academy prop George Delaney, back rower McKenzie Buckley and half back Ellis Archer are others who have all also progressed through the prestigious Saints Academy and could make their first team debuts on Friday.

Shay Martyn made his debut against Salford last season and is named alongside the more experienced likes of Jack Welsby, Joey Lussick, LMS, Kyle Amor, Jake Wingfield, James Bell, Josh Simm, Ben Davies, Dan Norman, Sam Royle and Jon Bennison who have all retained their place in the squad following Friday’s win over Huddersfield.

Curtis Sironen again misses out after picking up a two game ban following a late hit on the passer against the Giants. Konrad Hurrell starts his two game ban after picking up a two match suspension against Wigan.

Lewis Dodd is sadly ruled out for the season with an Achilles injury, whilst Will Hopoate is on the road to recovery from an injury that has kept him out of recent weeks. Regan Grace and Sione Mata’utia are still missing through injury and Morgan Knowles is still out due to the Concussion protocols

Friday’s match is live on Sky Sports and you will also be able to follow all the updates in our Match Centre here and our social media accounts.
