HEAD Coach Rhys Lovegrove has today named his 21-man squad for Sunday’s Betfred League 1 Round Twelve fixture away at the Rochdale Hornets.

Following last week’s draw away at Hunslet, Lovegrove has made a number of changes to his side with some of those enforced.

Quentin Laulu-Togaga’e and Phoenix Laulu-Togaga’e are both ruled out through self-isolation after coming into contact with a positive Covid-19 case.

Josh Lynam and Jason Muranka also drop out of the side from last Sunday’s derby game in Leeds with James Feather also missing out after coming in as a last-minute replacement.

The big news in terms of those coming into the side is the return of Brenden Santi, who returns after missing the last fortnight through a shoulder injury sustained in the win over the Barrow Raiders.

There are also recalls into the squad for Ben Stead and Jack Arnold with Robert Matamosi also returning after being away with the Army for the majority of July.

Con Mika (Ankle) has been cleared to play by the medical department following the injury that ruled out him at the last minute against Hunslet.

This weekend’s game comes too soon for Jake Webster (Ankle) as he nears his return from injury.

Bobby Darbyshire (Concussion), Wellington Albert (Ankle), and Alix Stephenson (Leg) remain long term absentees for the Cougars.
