SAINTS welcome back long-term casualty Zeb Tai to their 19-man squad ahead of Friday night’s home clash with Wakefield Trinity.

Taia has missed the last five games after dislocating his shoulder in the win over Leeds Rhinos back in June, but is included alongside Aaron Smith and Jack Welsby who all come in for Alex Walmsley, Morgan Knowles and Matty Costello.

Walmsley misses out after he picked up an eye injury against Halifax whilst, Knowles who was named in the original 19 man squad for the cup semi final, but did not feature in the win following an injury he picked up against London, is not included again.

Lachlan Coote remains sidelined.

Welsby comes in for Costello in the only other change to the squad ahead of Friday’s clash with Wakefield at the Totally Wicked Stadium.
