Returning are Joel Moon and Anthony Mullally from injury and suspension respectively – while Harry Newman also comes into the 19-man squad. They replace Mikolaj Oledzki and Richie Myler, who have concussion – and Brett Delaney, who has a calf injury.
Meanwhile, league leaders St Helens make a solitary change to their 19-man squad. Kyle Amor is sidelined through injury – youngster Jack Ashworth comes into the mix in his place.
