SAINTS welcome back Lachlan Coote, Jonny Lomax, Tommy Makinson, Alex Walmsley and Zeb Taia for Friday night’s Betfred Round 18 Super League clash with Huddersfield Giants, (kick off 7.45pm).

All five missed Sunday’s defeat at London Broncos, but all are straight back in along with hooker Aaron Smith who replaces James Roby as he underwent surgery this week.

Danny Richardson, who partnered Theo Fages in London, drops out of the 19 to make way for Lomax.

Regan Grace and Matty Lees are rested, with Jack Welsby dropping out to accommodate the returning Coote.
