Meanwhile, Mark Percival returns to the St Helens fold after a muscle injury picked up against Castleford.

Half-back Lewis Dodd also returns for Saints, while Matty Costello and Joe Batchelor both drop out.

Warrington will be without winger Tom Lineham for the tie after he was banned for eight games after being found guilty of grabbing the testicles of an opponent.
