St Helens coach Kristian Woolf has provided a positive injury update on utility James Bentley.
The 23-year-old left the field with an ankle injury in Saints’ recent 32-0 win over Toronto but scans have revealed that he will only miss up to a month.
Woolf said: “The news has been really good actually.
“At one stage there was a little bit of fear he may require surgery or might have been out for six to eight weeks, but the latest (results) shows us that we think he will probably be out for around four weeks which means around three weeks from now.
“James being James, I have got no doubt that he will work really hard and I have no doubt that he is a tough player and he will work hard to make sure it is right.
“I expect to see him back available in the next three to four weeks.”
Saints full-back Lachlan Coote is expected to return for Sunday’s trip to Castleford.
