Head Coach Paul Wellens has named his 21-man squad for the Saints’ upcoming match away at Warrington Wolves on Friday night. The Round 26 Betfred Super League fixture takes place at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, with kick-off scheduled in for 8pm.
Friday night will be the third meeting between the two sides and the second time facing the Wolves at their home ground. Wellens charges are aiming to make it a league treble over Warrington after a convincing 28-6 home win back in April, and a hard-fought victory 20-24 at the home of the Wire during July.
The Saints are currently on a seven-match winning run which began at the end of July and has seen the Red V beat; Leeds, Salford, Huddersfield, Hull KR, Castleford, Wakefield and Leigh. The latest result over the Leopards last Friday night was a bruising encounter and has unfortunately ruled out George Delaney due to head injury protocols.
Wellens has a welcome boost to his forwards with back-rower Curtis Sironen possibly marking his return following a reoccurrence of a hamstring injury against Salford and he is back in the 21-man squad against Warrington.
The Saints are locked in a tight three way race for the League Leaders Shield which will go right down to the final game, with Wigan Warriors and Catalans Dragons tied on league points with the Red V – but just above on points difference as we go into the final two regular season rounds of Betfred Super League 2023.
Warrington are battling to get one of the remaining play-off spots, and after their narrow Golden Point defeat to Salford on Sunday too in front of their own fans the Wolves will be highly motivated to secure a result.
