St Helens v Catalans: Squads Announced

St Helens and Catalans have both announced their 21-man squads for Sunday afternoon’s restart fixture at Emerald Headingley Stadium (KO 4:15pm).

Saints were actually the last team to play a Super League game 18 weeks ago when they lost to Castleford, before the season was suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Sunday will mark the return of rugby league in the UK, however, with games played behind closed doors and numerous safety precautions put in place to ensure the safety of players, staff and match officials.

St Helens

Kristian Woolf includes new signing James Graham in his 21-man squad, with the England prop set to make his second Saints debut. Mark Percival is also included after recovering from shoulder surgery but Joseph Paulo misses out with a minor muscle injury.
