Warrington Wolves name Super League semi-final squad


WARRINGTON Wolves coach Steve Price has named his 19-man squad for Thursday night’s Super League play-off semi-final at St Helens.

A place in the Grand Final at Old Trafford on October 13 is at stake in the do-or-die clash at the Totally Wicked Stadium against this season’s League Leaders’ Shield winners.

Kevin Brown and Tyrone Roberts both return having sat out the win at Wakefield last week, while Tom Lineham is also back following suspension.

Warrington have lost three of the last six Grand Finals, while St Helens haven’t been in one since they last won it, back in 2014, a year in which they also finished top of the table.

Saints are themselves at full strength, with the exception of long-term injury victim Alex Walmsley.

They had seven players named in the Super League Dream Team announced earlier this week, including Man of Steel nominee Ben Barba, who leaves the club at the end of the season to return to the NRL.

Warrington 19-man squad: Atkins, K Brown, Charnley, Clark, Cooper, Goodwin, Hill, Hughes, G King, T King, Lineham, Livett, Murdoch-Masila, Patton, Philbin, Ratchford, Roberts, Thompson, Westwood.

St Helens 19-man squad: Lomax, Makinson, Morgan, Percival, Fages, Roby, Amor, Taia, Wilkin, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Douglas, Knowles, Thompson, Peyroux, Richardson, Grace, Lees, Ashworth, Barba.
