Whilst Warrington faced an incredibly tough encounter against Wigan, St Helens brushed aside Salford in round one.
The last time these two sides did battle against one another was the 2019 Challenge Cup Final. That ended in an 18-4 victory for Warrington, but Saints have won their last three in the league against the Wolves and their last four at the Halliwell Jones.
Warrington new boy Matty Ashton impressed against Wigan despite the 16-10 defeat, but the hosts will be without captain Chris Hill after his sending off against the Warriors. Ellis Robson takes the skipper’s place in the 21-man squad.
Saints, meanwhile, swept aside the Red Devils in a competent 48-8 display, but lost Lachlan Coote to an MCL injury whilst Kyle Amor is also set for a spell on the sidelines. Matty Costello is included as is Morgan Knowles after the latter’s off-season shoulder surgery. Youngsters Lewis Dodd and Tom Nisbet also make up the 21-man squad.
Saints look like a force to be reckoned with once more despite the loss of boss Justin Holbrook. The visitors will have too much for Warrington, the Saints have a very good record of wins going up against Warrington at home, in fact looking at these statistics it makes St Helens a 70% chance to win this match.
