St Helens v Leeds Rhinos - Super League Round 5 preview
Super League champions Leeds Rhinos travel to St Helens on Friday in a clash being shown live on Sky Sports 1HD at 8pm.
The Rhinos go into the clash on the back of a narrow 18-14 World Club Challenge defeat to Melbourne Storm at Headingley.
After an opening loss to Huddersfield, Saints are unbeaten in three Super League clashes - the latest a 36-10 trouncing of Bradford Bulls - to sit in fifth in the table, a point and a place ahead of the Rhinos, who have played a game less.
In team news, Jonny Lomax stays at full-back for Saints in the absence of injured duo Paul Wellens and Lance Hohaia.
Acting captain Jon Wilkin and Gary Wheeler continue their new half-back pairing following the win at Bradford, while experienced prop forward Paul Clough is set to make his first appearance of the season after recovering from injury.
For Leeds, Kallum Watkins continues at full-back in the absence of Zak Hardaker.
Prop Richard Moore, who was 18th man against Melbourne, is in the reckoning, while fellow front rower Ryan Bailey has also been named in the 19-man squad despite undergoing knee surgery.
Saints squad: Gardner, Turner, Soliola, Meli, Lomax, Roby, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Puletua, Wilkin, Manu, Laffranchi, Flanagan, Clough, Wheeler, Jones, Greenwood, Walmsley, Walker, Percival.
Rhinos squad: Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, McShane, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Ward, Delaney, Bailey, Kirke, Clarkson, Achurch, Moore, Vickers.
