Super League V - Round 24 Team NewsThe Wolves head up the road to close neighbours St Helens in front of Sky Sports cameras this sunday to face a wounded and embarrased Saints side that was outclassed by Wakefield the previous week. The saints are without doubt a bogey side for the Wolves having never beaten them in Super League. The squad is:Lee PennyMark ForsterWill CowellAlan HunteToa Kohe-LoveLee BriersAllan LangerAndrew GeeDanny FarrarMark HiltonSteve McCurriePaul NooneTawera NikauJerome GuissetMike PetersIan KnottDean BusbyWarren StevensWarren Stevens is back in the squad after spending last season in Australia playing for Lower Clarence RLFC. Warren has impressed in the games he has played since returning and is cover for Mark Hilton whose arm injury is responding well to treatment. Also back is Mark Forster, who launched his double testimonial season this week. Coach Van de Velde also put paid to speculation on the future of half-back Lee Briers as he stated that contract negotiations are well under way, "He's not going anywhere. He is under 24, he is the only player this club has ever paid a fee for and he is learning all the time off Alfie."Returning for the saints are Great Britain International Paul Newlove, who returns after seven weeks on the sidelines with a hamstring problem. Young fullback Paul Wellens also returns after a kidney infection. Hooker Keiron Cunningham also makes a start after last week being on the bench and warns, "We'll have no problem picking ourselves up for Warrington. We took a few things for granted at the weekend and it won't happen again." The only regular player with a chance of not being in the squad is Sonny Nickle.
