NEW boy Josh Perry is facing a race against time to be fit for Friday night’s home game against Bradford Bulls.
The Australian prop suffered a damaged shoulder in the 30-16 win at Leeds – only his second full start since overcoming a long-term injury.
Saints will also be hoping to notch their first win at the Stobart Stadium following defeats at the hands of Warrington and Harlequins, but two Knowsley Road old boys will be hell-bent on helping to extend that unwanted record.
Coach Mick Potter, who spent two years in charge at St Helens, and prop Bryn Hargreaves, switched their allegiance to Bulls during the close season.
They will be putting their inside knowledge of the club to good use in the build up to the match.
