Adam Swift and Lama Tasi both return to the Saints' 19-man squad for Sunday's First Utility Super League clash against Huddersfield Giants at the John Smith's Stadium.

They replace Matty Dawson and Jack Ashworth and will be hoping to inject extra pace in a match which Saints will be desperately keen to win and maintain their challenge for a top four spot at the end of the regular season.

Aussie scrum half Luke Walsh, who has missed the last five matches, is also included in the squad for a second week in succession and although he didn't feature in the final line-up against Widnes Vikings, his chance of starting on Sunday are much brighter.

Head coach Keiron Cunningham will select his 17 from:

1. Jonny Lomax, 3. Jordan Turner, 4. Mark Percival, 5. Adam Swift, 7. Luke Walsh, 8. Alex Walmsley, 9. James Roby, 10. Kyle Amor, 11. Atelea Vea, 12. Jon Wilkin, 13. Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, 14. Lama Tasi, 15. Greg Richards, 17. Luke Thompson, 20. Joe Greenwood, 22. Jack Owens, 23. Shannon McDonnell, 24. Matty Fleming, 28. Morgan Knowles.

New Huddersfield coach Rick Stone will choose his Giants' side from:

2. Jermaine McGillvary, 3. Leroy Cudjoe, 5. Aaron Murphy, 6. Danny Brough, 8. Eorl Crabtree, 9. Ryan Hinchcliffe, 10. Craig Huby, 11. Tom Symonds, 12. Michael Lawrence, 15. Kyle Wood, 16. Sam Rapira, 17. Ukuma Ta'ai, 18. Jake Connor, 20. Kruise Leeming, 21. Nathan Mason, 22. Oliver Roberts, 34. Ryan Brierley, 35. Gene Ormsby, 36. Sebastine Ikahihifo.

The game kicks off at 3pm and the referee is Joe Cobb.

Canberra-bound Jordan Turner is only one match short of 200 Super League appearances (32 for Salford, 2006-2007 and 2009; 67 for Hull FC, 2010-2012 and 100 for St Helens, 2013-2016).
