Ryan Morgan returns for St Helens while Wigan’s Morgan Escaré ruled out

Ryan Morgan is expected to return for St Helens on Good Friday while Wigan ace Morgan Escaré has been ruled out of the derby.

Justin Holbrook has made just one change to his Saints side that won at Hull KR last week. Morgan replaces Adam Swift, who is sidelined with a shoulder injury.

Shaun Wane has made two changes to his Warriors outfit that thrashed Huddersfield last time out. Romain Navarette returns while there is a call-up for rising star Josh Woods. Escaré misses out with a virus while Gabe Hamlin is the other player to drop out.

The Super League clash takes place at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Good Friday, 3:15pm kick-off. Home and away tickets are sold out.

  1. Just like a saints fan coming out with something like that let just hope the ref takes no notice of the winging saints players I was going to name a few but the all wingers and I’ve also noticed the coach is winging to this week in the express just let hope is not all about winging and let’s see both set of players go at it but let not forget it’s been along time since the saints won on good Friday so let’s keep it going come on Wigan ?

    • Lots of wingers in the Saints team! Let’s face it the Pies have history in the thuggery department and learn to spell!
