Thomas Leuluai has been out with a broken jaw

Shaun Wane says Kiwi halfback Leuluai may face St Helens next Thursday after recovering from a broken jaw.

He had hoped he may be fit to face Warrington this Saturday at Newcastle, but has left the influential play-maker out of his 19-man squad.

Williams retains his place in last week’s panel – he withdrew from the Swinton-Cup game with a migraine – and O’Loughlin returns after missing the last two games.
