Woolf revealed some early squad news, admitting Will Hopoate will not feature after leaving the field at half time in last week’s win over Hull KR. He did reveal however, everyone else came through the game unscathed and he will name his squad on Wednesday at 12 noon.
The game will also potentially see Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook make his 400th Super League appearance on Friday and Woolf was full of praise for our fun-filled southerner!
