St Helens full back Lachlan Coote has been named in the 21 man squad  for the Friday’s clash with Huddersfield Giants at the Totally Wicked stadium.

Coote picked up  a knee injury in the opening game of the season against Salford Devils and has missed the the past four matches, but he has returned to training this week and is included in the squad for Friday’s clash with the Giants.

He replaces the suspended Aaron Smith after the hooker was suspended for one game following a grade A tackle in last week’s victory over Toronto.

The other change to the squad sees James Bentley drop out due to his ankle injury sustained last week and he is replaced by young centre Josh Simm.

Saints’ squad: 1. Lachlan Coote, 2. Tommy Makinson, 3. Kevin Naiqama, 5, Regan Grace, 6. Jonny Lomax, 7. Theo Fages, 8. Alex Walmsley, 9, James Roby, 10. Luke Thompson, 11. Zeb Taia, 12. Dom Peyroux, 13. LMS, 14. Morgan Knowles, 15. Matty Lees, 16. Kyle Amor, 17, Jack Ashworth, 18. Joseph Paulo, 21, Matty Costello, 22. Jack Welsby, 26. Josh Simm, 27. Lewis Dodd.
