THE TEAM NEWS
SALFORD RED DEVILS
- Salford Red Devils pushed Warrington Wolves all the way last week but they suffered golden point heartache, meaning that they have now lost four of their last five Super League matches.
- The Red Devils will hope to bow out for the season on a positive note after a tough campaign to date but even a victory against St. Helens will not hide what an underwhelming season it has been.
21-man squad: Escare, Sio, Inu, Lolohea, Brown, Ackers, Ikahihifo, Lannon, Pauli, Taylor, Addy, Roberts, Burke, Johnson, Atkin, Williams, Sarginson, Costello, Ormondroyd, Aspey, RobsonST. HELENS
- St. Helens responded to their agonising loss against Catalans Dragons by producing a dominant display in their victory over Leeds Rhinos last week and is that kind of performance that will put them in contention to defend their Super League crown.
- Saints started well and spent most of the first half camped in the Leeds half to have the game won by the break but they have opted to rest some of their first-teamers for this clash with four youngsters named in the squad for the first time, one of which is Shay Martyn who is the son of St. Helens legend Tommy.
20-man squad: Grace, Lomax, Walmsley, Lees, Thompson, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Amor, Welsby, Smith, Dodd, Simm, Wingfield, Eaves, Norman, Davies, Royle, Bennison, Martyn, Pemberton, Sumner
Salford Red Devils will look to end what has ultimately been a
disappointing campaign on a high as they wrap things up with a clash
against defending champions St. Helens. Salford have won just six of 21
matches this year with head coach Richard Marshall finding things tough
in his first year in charge. St. Helens on the other hand have secured
second spot and will rotate their side this week ahead of the play-offs
with several youngsters in line to make their first-team debut. Despite
naming the weakened squad, the Saints side still looks to have points in
them and this should be an open affair with lots of points, surpassing
the total line of 44.5.
