Woolf gives Mata’utia update

St Helens Head Coach Kristian Woolf has confirmed Sione Mata’utia will at least miss next week’s game against Salford Red Devils.

Mata’utia came off in the second half of Saints’ 40-6 win over Leeds Rhinos with an ankle injury. He was walking around the pitch after the match with crutches and a protective boot.

Despite this, Woolf is confident he will be back for at least the semi-final, which will take place at the Totally Wicked Stadium in a couple of week’s time.

Woolf said they will look closer at the issue over the coming days.

He said: “He’s obviously got a bit of an issue there. I don’t think it’s a terrible one that will keep him out of finals footy. But he obviously wont be available next week as it stands.

“He just needs to look after it, and I am extremely confident he will be alright for the semi final in a couple of weeks time.

“He’s been playing terrific. I have been really happy with him the last couple of weeks. We need to look after him, and I am confident he will be alright for the semi-finals.”
