Morgan Knowles and Curtis Sironen return for Friday's derby clash with Wigan Warriors at the DW Stadium (kick off 8pm).
Knowles picked up a one game suspension after a shoulder charge against Hull FC and he joined Curtis Sironen on the sideline after his high shot against Castleford.
Both men return this week ahead of the derby, but boss Kristian Woolf has confirmed that Will Hopoate will miss the game after he left the field last week due to a hamstring injury. Taylor Pemberton is the other Saint to drop out.
Sione Mata’utia is not fit after he limped off mid-way through the second half of the win over Hull FC with a foot injury and the boss indicated at the time that he will be missing for “two, possibly three weeks”.
Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook is named ahead of a potential 400th Super League appearance.
His first #SuperLeague play-off try came in the @Saints1890 – @WiganWarriorsRL derby in September 2011 at the DW Stadium…
