Jack Welsby is another to return having not featured since the defeat against Sunday’s opponents, London, back in June.There are also inclusions for young hooker Josh Eaves, who was part of the unbeaten Academy Championship side in 2016 and has impressed on loan at Leigh this season playing six times for the Championship club. Loose forward, Callum Hazzard, has been recalled from his loan with North Wales Crusaders where he has scored five tries in 16 appearances.
