Saints make changes for Broncos game
SAINTS have been forced to make some changes for tonight’s (Thursday) home game with London.
Centre Jordan Turner (broken foot) has been ruled out for two months with prop Kyle Amor facing a spell on the sidelines with a knee injury.
Amor is still awaiting results, but his absence is a massive blow.
Anthony Laffranchi is still sidelined, with yet to play Richard Beaumont five weeks away from fitness.
Coach Nathan Brown said: “Kyle has been super for us, as has Willie Manu, and when they don’t play you do notice but it gives opportunity for others to showcase their skills.
“It is a chance for a number of young forwards to step up. It may be a case of numbers of them stepping up, some in some weeks and some in others due to how tough the Super League is."
Forwards Mark Flanagan, Anthony Walker, Carl Forster and Andre Savelio return, while Paul Wellens sits it out.
Saints 19: Jonny Lomax, Tommy Makinson, Josh Jones, Adam Swift, Lance Hohaia, Luke Walsh, Mose Masoe, James Roby, Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Sia Soliola, Jon Wilkin, Mark Flanagan, Alex Walmsley, Mark Percival, Joe Greenwood, Anthony Walker, Luke Thompson, Carl Forster, Andre Savelio.
The game is Thursday at 8pm.
Referee is Matthew Thomason.
