SAINTS have a chance of coming up against Warrington's England rugby union convert Luther Burrell in Friday's clash at the Halliwell Jones.

Wire boss Steve Price has not ruled out playing the 31-year-old former Northampton centre - saying that "he is in our 21".

His appearance so early since converting would be a gamble - but it would add another ingredient to an already crackling derby between league leading Saints and their nearest rivals on the Super League table.

"He is in the mix, in our 21.

"He is doing some really good things in training. We have got another training session to go on Thursday and then I'll make a decision.

"It is just about understanding the people around him and he is doing a really good job at that," said Price.
