Grand Final: Cayless set for comeback
St Helens' New Zealand prop Jason Cayless is in line to make his comeback from injury in Saturday's engage Super League Grand Final after being named in coach Daniel Anderson's 19-man squad.
The 28-year-old former Sydney Roosters front-rower, who is one of nine overseas players to have completed the double of NRL and Super League Grand Final victories, has been out for a month with a knee injury.
If Cayless plays, it is likely Hull KR-bound prop Nick Fozzard will be the one to make way, just as he did for the recent Challenge Cup final when Maurie Fa'asavalu made his return from injury.
Anderson will not reveal his actual side until an hour before kick-off but has hinted that Cayless' lack of match-fitness will not count against him.
"He has done the full sessions so he is in contention for the game," said Anderson.
"I know what he can offer but I've seen what the other boys have offered in his absence. It's a difficult decision but it's not one that I'm uncomfortable with, I've done it before."
Utility back Kyle Eastmond is the other player likely to drop out of Anderson's initial squad.
Team (from): Wellens, Gardner, Gidley, Talau, Meli, Pryce, Long, Fozzard, Cunningham (capt), Cayless, Gilmour, Wilkin, Roby, Flannery, Graham, Hargreaves, Clough, Fa'asavalu, Eastmond.
