Leigh Leopards vs St Helens: Team news and injuries as Paul Wellens could hand new signing could make debut

LEIGH LEOPARDS host St Helens on Friday night with another expected extravaganza in entertainment at the Leigh Sports Village.

The famous band T’Pau are performing, paving the way for a potentially enthralling game with Saints going into this one on the back of a surprise defeat to Leeds Rhinos last weekend.

Meanwhile, the Leopards acquired their first two points of the season with a last-minute win over Hull KR at Craven Park.

Team news and injuries

Leigh will be without the suspended Ben Reynolds with Tom Nisbet coming in whilst Saints have Konrad Hurrell, Curtis Sironen and Sione Mata’utia banned.

James Roby and Agnatius Paasi will likely return for Paul Wellens’ side from injury. Wesley Bruines could make his debut for the reigning champions after scoring a hat-trick for the club’s reserves last weekend.
