Lomax and Percival in Saints' squad for Wigan clash
Saints have been given a major boost ahead of Sunday night's blockbuster against deadly rivals Wigan Warriors at the Totally Wicket Stadium - influential stand-off Jonny Lomax returns after a short spell on the sidelines and international team-mate Mark Percival is named in the squad for the first time since the victory over Hull FC in Betfred Super League round eight.
Joel Thompson again misses out with the shoulder injury he picked up against Warrington, while Josh Eaves and Sam Royle are the two to drop out. Matty Lees, James Bentley and Jake Wingfield are all still out with their injuries.
The game is live on Sky Sports Main Event from 7pm on Sunday.
