Lee Radford has named his 19-man squad for this Friday’s trip to face St Helens.

The Black & Whites travel to face the Super League leaders at the Totally Wicked Stadium, and will be hoping to see Justin Holbrook’s side keep their champagne on ice and prevent them confirming top spot this weekend.

Radford has made just one change to the squad to face the Saints, with Jake Connor returning to the squad after recovering sooner than expected from injury.

Connor suffered a hamstring tear in the July defeat to the Saints and was expected to be out of action for the remainder of the 2018 season. However, the utility-back is named in the squad, replacing Josh Griffin.

The Airlie Birds still maintain their lengthy injury list though, with nine first-team players currently out of action, five of them being out for the remainder of the season.

Albert Kelly, Marc Sneyd, Mark Minichiello, Chris Green, Mickey Paea, Josh Bowden, Josh Griffin and Joe Westerman are all currently sidelined with respective knocks, with Jack Downs also joining that list.

The full 19-man squad can be found below:

1, Jamie Shaul
2. Bureta Faraimo
3. Carlos Tuimavave
5. Fetuli Talanoa
8. Scott Taylor
9. Danny Houghton
11. Dean Hadley
14. Jake Connor
16. Jordan Abdull

20. Brad Fash
21. Sika Manu
22. Jez Litten
