THE TEAM NEWS
- St. Helens were defeated by bitter rivals Wigan Warriors in last week’s Challenge Cup semi-final clash with the holders crashing out of the competition and now their attention will fall solely on defending their Super League crown.
- Jonny Lomax played through the pain of a torn bicep and looks set to feature once again with fellow half Lewis Dodd sidelined for the rest of the campaign while Regan Grace is still not fit enough to return from a hamstring injury.
21-man squad: 1 Jack Welsby, 2 Tommy Makinson, 4 Mark Percival, 6 Jonny Lomax, 8 Alex Walmsley, 9 James Roby, 10 Matty Lees, 11 Sione Mata’utia, 12 Joe Batchelor, 13 Morgan Knowles, 14 Joey Lussick, 15 Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, 16 Curtis Sironen, 17 Agnatius Paasi, 19 Jake Wingfield, 20 James Bell, 21 Josh Simm, 22 Ben Davies, 23 Konrad Hurrell, 24 Dan Norman, 30 Jumah Sambou

- Hull FC will hope to show that they can maintain their challenge at the right end of the table as they aim to make it four successive wins after romping to a straightforward victory over Toulouse last time out.
- The Black and Whites were far too good for their French opponents and while they will be further boosted by the return of Adam Swift, Josh Griffin, Luke Gale and Josh Reynolds, FC still have it all to do to end a 12-game losing streak against St. Helens.

St. Helens will be desperate to put last week’s Challenge Cup disappointment behind them as they aim to continue their excellent winning streak over opponents Hull FC. Saints have won the past 12 games between the two in all competitions but the hosts will have to be wary here against their rested opponents. Hull were able to enjoy the week off and they will look to capitalise on Saints being involved in such a draining affair last week. The away side are able to name a strong squad for this one and while they may not have enough to win, they should at least be in the contest so are worth siding with on the handicap with a +12.5 start.
