THE TEAM NEWS

ST. HELENS

  • St. Helens will come into this top four clash with Warrington Wolves on the back of a week off after their game with Leeds Rhinos was postponed owing to an outbreak of COVID-19 within the Rhinos camp.
  • That means Saints’ last game was a thrilling win over Hull FC in their Challenge Cup semi-final contest at the start of June and they should be refreshed following their enforced absence, although that did mean that they surrendered top spot with Catalans Dragons leapfrogging them at the summit.

21-man squad: Amor, Batchelor, Coote, Dodd, Fages, Grace, Knowles, Lomax, Makinson, Mata’utia, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Naiqama, Norman, Paasi, Roby, Royle, Simm, Smith, Thompson, Walmsley, Welsby

Unavailable: Matty Lees, James Bentley, Jake Wingfield, Mark Percival

Questionable: Agnatius Paasi

WARRINGTON WOLVES

  • Warrington Wolves put their Challenge Cup semi-final disappointment behind them by comfortably seeing off Wakefield Trinity last week as they made it three successive Super League victories.
  • Warrington were able to post 38 points in that contest to maintain their superb form with ball in hand and they have now surpassed the 300-point mark after just nine games, making them the only side to do so this campaign so far.

21-man squad: Akauola, Austin, Butler, Charnley, D. Clark, Cooper, Currie, Davis, Hill, Hughes, King, Lineham, Longstaff, Mamo, Mulhern, Philbin, Ratchford, Thewlis, Walker, Widdop, Wrench

Unavailable: Matty Ashton, Eribe Doro, Greg Inglis, Jason Clark

THE PREDICTION

St. Helens will look to retake top spot in Super League as they do battle with top four rivals Warrington Wolves. Saints have lost just one game all season and managed to dig deep to ensure they held off a late Hull FC fightback in their recent Challenge Cup semi-final clash. The Wolves on the other hand were able to put their disappointment in that competition behind them as they made it three straight Super League wins by overcome Wakefield Trinity last week. This promises to be a tight affair and with defences likely to be on top, there should be no more than 47 points scored in this one.
