SAINTS are sweating on the fitness of Leon Pryce and Gary Wheeler.

The pair have been plagued by injuries this season, and coach Royce Simmons will wait until later this week before making a final decision.

Simmons said: “Leon and Gary came through training on Monday okay.

“But we will have to see how they feel as the week progresses.

“We’ve been in this position with players before.

“But, at the end of the day, it’s a question of wait and see.

“I’ve got a strong squad, so I’m sure we’ll cope.”

If both report fit, it will give Simmons a selection headache – something he hasn’t enjoyed too often in an injury-ravaged season.

Definitely out of contention, however, are Josh Perry, Chris Flannery, Kyle Eastmond, Shaun Magennis and Ade Gardner – five players who will not figure in Saints’ plans even if they reach the Grand Final.

Tickets for the game are now on general sale at normal match-day prices – North and South Stand (adults £25, concessions £19, juniors £13, family ticket, two adults and two children, £50); East Stand (adults £20, concessions £14, juniors £11 and family ticket £40).

They can be purchased from the club store in the Brownlow Arcade, by calling 01744 456 052, or logging on to the club website.
