St Helens vs Warrington Wolves Super League Round 23 Preview


A Saints win will see them finish the regular season having lost just 2 games in the last 23 outings in Super League, a fitting testament to just how good Justin Holbrook's men have been in 2018. Warrington need a win to push for second and or keep Castleford from pinching 3rd from them.

A pattern has developed in recent years between these two sides, each side unable to go back to back against each other, St Helens last claimed a regular season double over Warrington back in the 2015 season, could 2018 be the year St Helens do it all over again?

St Helens welcome back in form back rower Zeb Taia from injury, a welcome sight for Saints fans. Warrington also welcome back some big names for this challenging fixture, Bryson Goodwin, Ben Murdoch-Masila and Ben Westwood all come back into Steve Price's 19 man squad.

St Helens: Jonny Lomax, Tommy Makinson, Ryan Morgan, Mark Percival, Theo Fages, James Roby, Kyle Amor, Zeb Taia, Jon Wilkin, Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Luke Douglas, Morgan Knowles, Luke Thompson, Dom Peyroux, Danny Richardson, Regan Grace, Matty Lees, Jack Ashworth, Ben Barba.

Warrington Wolves:  Stefan Ratchford, Tom Lineham, Kevin Brown, Tyrone Roberts, Chris Hill, Daryl Clark, Mike Cooper, Jack Hughes, Declan Patton, Sitaleki Akauola, Joe Philbin, Toby King, George King, Harvey Livett, Mitch Brown, Morgan Smith, Josh Charnley, Ben Pomeroy, Ben Westwood.

I'm backing a Saints win in this game, they cruised to victory last week without a few of their big names and with them rested and back in the frame, I can't see them picking up their 3rd loss of the season on Thursday night, I'm backing a Saints win by 7-12 points.
