St Helens v Castleford: Squads Announced

St Helens and Castleford have both announced their 21-man squads for Sunday afternoon’s fixture at the Totally Wicked Stadium (KO 4:15pm).

Saints were initially due to play Wakefield, with Castleford set to face Hull FC, however following the forced re-shuffle of this weekend’s fixtures after six players and two members of staff at Hull FC tested positive for Covid-19, the clubs have been reassigned to play each other instead.

Kristian Woolf’s side stormed to a second win since the restart last week with a 48-0 hammering of Leeds, while the Tigers fell to a convincing 40-14 defeat to Catalans.

St Helens

Captain James Roby is set to make his 500th career appearance having made his Saints debut back in 2004. There’s only one change to Saints’ 21, with Jack Ashworth coming in for Dominique Peyroux.

21-man squad: 1 Lachlan Coote, 2 Tom Makinson, 3 Kevin Naiqama, 4 Mark Percival, 5 Regan Grace, 6 Jonny Lomax, 7 Theo Fages, 8 Alex Walmsley, 9 James Roby, 11 Zeb Taia, 13 Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, 14 Morgan Knowles, 15 Matty Lees, 16 Kyle Amor, 17 Jack Ashworth, 19 Aaron Smith, 20 James Bentley, 22 Jack Welsby, 23 Joe Batchelor, 27 Lewis Dodd, 32 James Graham.

Castleford Tigers

Sosaia Feki and Gareth O’Brien could be in line for their debuts after being named by Daryl Powell. Feki has yet to feature for the Tigers due to a calf injury, while O’Brien signed earlier this week from Toronto. Liam Watts also returns to the squad, as does Jesse Sene-Lefao, who was a late call-up last week.

21-man squad: 2 Derrell Olpherts, 4 Michael Shenton, 5 Sosaia Feki, 6 Jake Trueman, 7 Danny Richardson, 8 Liam Watts, 9 Paul McShane, 10 Grant Millington, 11 Oliver Holmes, 12 Mike McMeeken, 13 Adam Milner, 14 Nathan Massey, 15 Jesse Sene-Lefao, George Griffin, 17 Alex Foster, 20 Junior Moors, 21 James Clare, 22 Jacques O’Neill, 24 Tyla Hepi, 26 Calum Turner, 34 Gareth O’Brien.
