The only side yet to earn two points in the Super League, Toronto, take on fourth-placed St Helens at the Halliwell Jones Stadium. The Wolfpack’s Lamport Stadium is currently unavailable due to adverse weather conditions in Toronto, and following the abandonment of taking the fixture to Saracens’ Allianz Park, the Warrington club stepped in to host.
Toronto midweek recruits, Jack Wells and Ben Kilner go straight into Brian McDermott’s 21-man squad with Darcy Lussick returning from injury to replace Brad Singleton. Saints boss Kristian Woolf welcomes the return of Regan Grace after the flying winger missed the World Club Challenge defeat to Sydney Roosters with a concussion. Grace replaces Mark Percival as Jack Ashworth also comes in for Tom Nisbet.
Last time they met
This will be a fixture that will break new ground given the fact that the two sides have never played each other before. But, Toronto comes into this game having lost all four of their opening games so far. Saints, meanwhile, have triumphed in two out of three Super League fixtures, but went down 20-12 to NRL champions Sydney Roosters in last weekend’s transhemispheric clash.
This fixture only seems to be heading one way. Kristian Woolf’s men will be looking to inflict a big score on the Wolfpack in revenge for their Sydney kicking.
St Helens for the win.
