ELLIS Robson could make his Super League debut for Warrington Wolves in Thursday's clash with St Helens.

The young loose forward is drafted into Steve Price's 21-man squad for The Wire's first home game of the new campaign to replace co-captain Chris Hill, who serves the first of a three-match ban for his red card in last week's defeat to Wigan.

Gareth Widdop (ankle) and Jack Hughes (hernia) are still missing while Leilani Latu must wait a little longer for his Wire debut.

Wire squad: Sitaleki Akauola, Matty Ashton, Blake Austin, Luther Burrell, Josh Charnley, Daryl Clark, Jason Clark, Mike Cooper, Ben Currie, Matt Davis, Anthony Gelling, Luis Johnson, Toby King, Tom Lineham, Jake Mamo, Ben Murdoch-Masila, Declan Patton, Joe Philbin, Stefan Ratchford, Ellis Robson, Danny Walker

Saints are missing several key men themselves, with full-back Lachlan Coote and prop Kyle Amor joining skipper James Roby and winger Tommy Makinson on the sidelines.

However, forward Morgan Knowles is back in contention and comes back into head coach Kristian Woolf's 21-man squad along.

Saints squad: Kevin Naiqama, Mark Percival, Regan Grace, Jonny Lomax, Theo Fages, Alex Walmsley, Luke Thompson, Zeb Taia, Dom Peyroux, Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Morgan Knowles, Matty Lees, Jack Ashworth, Joseph Paulo, Aaron Smith, James Bentley, Matty Costello, Jack Welsby, Joe Batchelor, Lewis Dodd, Tom Nisbet
