Saints and Wolves to renew rivalries


Warrington Wolves and St Helens will lock horns for the first time this season at the Haliwell Jones on Friday.

The two rivals have had many a classic game over the years, with fans and viewers alike hoping for another one.

Warrington don’t come into the game in the best of form having lost three of their first five games under new Head Coach Steve Price.

The Wolves make two changes from the defeat at Hull FC and they are enforced as Declan Patton is out after being given a five match ban for a high tackle. He is replaced in the squad by Kevin Brown. And Sitakeli Akauola is also suspended and is replaced by Harvey Livett, who has been out on dual registration with Rochdale Hornets.

As for St Helens, they have made a perfect start to the season with four straight victories, including one against last years League Leaders Castleford Tigers.

Saints also make one enforced change as Matty Lees comes back into the squad for Jon Wilkin, who picked up a head knock last week against Salford Red Devils.

The match kicks off at 7.45pm and the referee will be James Child.
