Wellens names squad for Hull FC at home

Head Coach Paul Wellens has named his 21-man squad for St.Helens’ final regular season round of the Betfred Super League 2023 season, which sees Hull FC come to the Totally Wicked Stadium on Friday night, with kick-off at 8pm.

The race for the League Leaders’ Shield is going down to the final day, with the Saints in a three-way fight for the trophy and level on the same league points as Catalans Dragons and Wigan Warriors but points difference separating the three one week out from the start of the Play-Offs.

All six Round 27 matches in the competition will be kicking off at the same time, 8pm on Friday night, as the conclusion of this part of the season comes to a dramatic close. Saints face Hull FC on home soil, Catalans travel to Salford Stadium to play the Red Devils, and the Warriors take on Leigh in a borough battle. Come the end of play, one team will have the League Leaders’ Shield won.

Wellens has made four changes to the side that secured an eighth straight victory in the league last week beating Warrington Wolves 6-18. Lewis Baxter, Tee Ritson, Matthew Foster, and Wesley Bruines step out of the selection. In come Will Hopoate, Alex Walmsley, Konrad Hurrell, and George Delaney, all of whom could mark returns from injuries if selected to play.

Friday’s match will be the fourth encounter between the Red V and the Black & Whites this year, with the Saints getting the spoils in the first two; back in March beating Tony Smith’s side 20-12, and then in June in the Challenge Cup quarter-final 18-32. Smith’s men got a slice of revenge though five days following the Cup match, winning 34-6.

Both clubs continue to honour the legacy of the late great Steve Prescott MBE, with Friday night’s match as the third leg of the Steve Prescott Cup 2023.

The annual contest between the Saints and the Black & Whites is played over the regular season meetings between the two sides, with the team who has the highest aggregate score across the home and away league fixtures winning the trophy. Heading into this match the score is 26-46 in favour of the Black & Whites.
