The prop - a marquee signing from Souths this year - has been nursing a hip problem for the past few weeks.

But he has been included in Adrian Lam's 21-man squad to face Salford on Friday.

Oliver Gildart and Joe Burgess also return, while Tony Clubb - who was due to face Catalans before the game was cancelled last week - is also on course for a comeback.

Captain Sean O'Loughlin misses out. There have been no reports he is injured and Lam last week spoke about rotating his key players to keep them fresh as the season reaches a climax.
