Three players return for Warrington ahead of Leigh clash

Joe Westerman, Mike Cooper and Harvey Livett are all back in contention for Warrington’s Qualifiers game against Leigh on Saturday.

The trio have all been named in Tony Smith’s 19-man squad for the clash at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, as the Wolves look to secure their Super League status.

Livett has not featured since injuring his hamstring during the warm-up of the Wolves Challenge Cup game against Widnes in May, while Westerman (hip) and Cooper (muscle strain) also return.

In less positive news for the Wire, Ryan Atkins requires surgery on a hernia and will miss the rest of the season. Morgan Smith and Jack Johnson also drop out of the squad.

Warrington 19-man squad: Kevin Brown, Mike Cooper, Brad Dwyer, Kurt Gidley, Peta Hiku, Chris Hill, Jack Hughes, Benjamin Jullien, George King, Tom Lineham, Harvey Livett, Declan Patton, Joe Philbin, Stefan Ratchford, Matty Russell, Andre Savelio, Ashton Sims, Joe Westerman, Ben Westwood.
