Warrington Wolves could climb as high as fifth in the Super League ladder with success over St Helens at the Magic Weekend in Manchester.

It has been an indifferent season so far for Tony Smith's Wolves, although they were back on song to dispatch Catalan Dragons 42-10 on home soil last time out.

Saints also come into the contest with the tails up after putting Bradford Bulls to the sword last weekend. Nathan Brown's troops ran out comfortable 50-0 winners at Provident Stadium.

The pair have already met this season with St Helens laying down a marker in Round One following an emphatic 38-8 success over the Wolves away from home.

Warrington are boosted by the return of England second rower Ben Westwood, who has missed the last six matches with a torn calf.

That is likely to be the only change to the team that brush aside Laurent Frayssinous' Dragons on home soil.

Fit-again

Fit-again centre Jordan Turner returns to the Saints squad for the first time since injuring his foot in their Tetley's Challenge Cup defeat to Leeds Rhinos.

The former Hull FC man comes in for the injured winger Adam Swift, which is likely to mean Matt Dawson reverting to the flank.

"Warrington are always a threat, they are a fantastic side and I don't think that their league position at the moment does them justice," said Saints captain Paul Wellens.

"They have improved since we played them at the start of the season and I have a sneaky feeling that they will be much more difficult this time out.

"I think the way they played against Catalan Dragons last week shows that they are moving in the right direction - we are expecting a tough game."

Warrington Wolves: Asotasi, Atkins, C. Bridge, Currie, Dwyer, England, B. Evans, R. Evans, Harrison, Higham, Hill, Laithwaite, J. Monaghan, M. Monaghan, Ormsby, Ratchford, Russell, Waterhouse, Westwood.

St Helens: Lomax, Makinson, Turner, Jones, Hohaia, Walsh, Masoe, Roby, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Soliola, Wilkin, Flanagan, Wellens, Walmsley, Greenwood, Walker, Dawson, Richards, Thompson.
