SAINTS coach Paul Wellens has made two changes to his 21-man squad for tonight's away trip to Huddersfield Giants, which kicks off at 5.30pm at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Loose forward Morgan Knowles and hooker Moses Mbye in contention to mark their first appearances of the new season.

Konrad Hurrell and Jake Burns make way from last week's squad, which could indicate that Waqa Blake will be moving to his natural centre berth after playing on the wing last week.

That gives an option of Jon Bennison or Tee Ritson on the flank.

Knowles' return after a groin issue and thumb surgery will see him work in tandem with James Bell, who was outstanding last week.

Huddersfield beat Leigh away on their opening night and traditionally are a tough nut to crack.

 Wellens said: “Huddersfield going to Leigh and producing a good performance will give them confidence.

“The fact that it was a close game and a tight game will be of benefit to them as well.

“That’s something for us to take on board because our game was a little bit stop-start at the weekend.

“Since Ian Watson has gone there, Huddersfield have been a very difficult team to beat.

“They don’t cough up too much cheap possession and get through to the end of the sets and kick the ball very well and have a number of strong kicking options.

“And obviously of the back of that they have plenty of strike so it makes them a very dangerous team and one we will respect at the weekend.”
