SAINTS welcome back James Roby and Zeb Taia to the 21 man squad ahead of Friday's clash with Hull KR at Totally Wicked Stadium (6pm).

Josh Eaves and Lewis Dodd drop out with the latter self-isolating after coming into contact with a positive Covid case.

Scrum half Theo Fages is named as is Kevin Naiqama, who has recovered from a dead leg.

The game is a repeat of the clash from two weeks ago - a game in which the Robins forced Saints into some difficulties in an often ugly performance.

Coach Kristian Woolf said: "It is an interesting one and we don’t have to worry too much about how we preview the team.

"Hull KR play differently and they chance their arm anyway.

"We have a good idea about Hull KR from two weeks ago and most blokes watched the Wigan game at the weekend as well.

"We are well prepared for them and the biggest thing is to make sure we are the best version of us."

Saints 21-man squad: Lachlan Coote, 3. Kevin Naiqama, 5. Regan Grace, 6. Jonny Lomax, 7. Theo Fages, 8. Alex Walmsley, 9. James Roby, 11. Zeb Taia, 12, Dom Peyroux, 13. LMS, 14. Morgan Knowles, 15.
