St Helens v Catalans: 21-man squads, injury update and TV details

In a game that could define the rest of the season and the charge to Old Trafford, the top two meet in the biggest match of the Magic Weekend.

Champions St Helens are looking to build on Monday’s impressive win over Warrington with a second triumph over Catalans this season. However, it’ll be a tall order against the league leaders especially now that they have a few key players back.

The Dragons have lost just twice this season and have been one of the few teams to beat St Helens. A win for the French side would virtually secure top spot leaving them in a great position as they look to make it to their very first Grand Final.

The game kicks off 17:15 on Saturday and is live on Sky Sports Arena.

The Saints have named an unchanged squad for this one. Yes, I’m sure Kristian Woolf wishes he could bring Jonny Lomax back into the fold, but a halfback partnership of Jack Welsby and Lewis Dodd contains enough quality to test the Dragons. James Bentley features after escaping a ban following an altercation in the win at Warrington.

21-man squad: 1 Lachlan Coote, 2 Tommy Makinson, 3 Kevin Naiqama, 4 Mark Percival, 5 Regan Grace, 8 Alex Walmsley, 9 James Roby, 10 Matty Lees, 11 Joel Thompson, 12 James Bentley, 13 Morgan Knowles, 14 Sione Mata’utia, 15 Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, 16 Kyle Amor, 17 Agnatius Paasi, 18 Jack Welsby, 19 Aaron Smith, 20 Joe Batchelor, 21 Lewis Dodd, 23 Jake Wingfield, 29 Ben Davies.


There’s big news for Catalans as they welcome back two of their best players. Both Dean Whare and Matt Whitley have been declared fit for this encounter meaning they return to the squad. There’s no place for youngster Corentin Le Cam however as well as former Warrington second-row Benjamin Jullien.

21-man squad: 1 Arthur Mourgue, 2 Tom Davies, 3 Samisoni Langi, 4 Dean Whare, 5 Fouad Yaha, 6 James Maloney, 7 Josh Drinkwater, 8 Gil Dudson, 9 Michael McIlorum, 10 Julian Bousquet, 11 Matt Whitley, 12 Mike McMeeken, 17 Mickael Goudemand, 20 Mattieu Laguerre, 22 Joel Tomkins, 23 Mathieu Cozza, 27 Joe Chan, 28 Sam Kasiano, 29 Sam Tomkins, 30 Jordan Dezaria, 31 Cesar Rouge.
