Dan Smith and Stuart Howarth will not travel to Perpignan to face Catalan Dragons on Saturday after they both suffered injuries against Salford last weekend. However, Brian Smith has been able to welcome back Reece Lyne and Richard Owen back into the 19-man squad.
Max Jowitt has earned himself another call up to the side along with his former U19s teammate Tom Johnstone.
Head Coach Brian Smith said, “Unfortunately we lost a couple of bodies last week, Dan Smith will miss out through a rib injury and Stuart Howarth with a wrist injury. Dan’s is not as bad as we first feared but we are still unsure how long they will both be out for. Ali Lauitiiti is still a couple of weeks away from making a return.
“I am pleased that we have been able to welcome back a couple more players into the squad, Reece Lyne and Richard Owen will both make a return this week.”
The 19 man squad is named below:
