SAINTS hooker Scott Moore is an ominous omission from the 19-man squad for Friday’s derby clash with Wigan - following his drink-drive arrest.

The 23-year-old was held by police following a car crash in the early hours of last Friday (June 10).

He has since been bailed until July 25 pending further inquiries and could also face an internal disciplinary procedure.

Second rower Matty Ashurst has been recalled to the Saints squad for the derby clash after being rested last week, along with Shaun Magennis.
