Pryce and Fielden set for comebacks
Thursday 14 July 2011
Two former regulars in the Great Britain side are poised to make their long-awaited comebacks tomorrow night after playing a negligible amount of rugby this season. The St Helens stand-off, Leon Pryce, is named in their squad to play Catalan Dragons, the club he is widely expected to join next season.
Pryce has struggled with a groin injury all season and has managed just a few minutes' action. His coach, Royce Simmons, will have little hesitation in throwing him back into the fray tomorrow. Wigan's Michael Maguire says he is also likely to bring Stuart Fielden straight back into Super League against Wakefield. "It's like driving a car," he said. "It soon comes back."
Castleford's Rangi Chase has had his two-match ban for punching reduced to one on appeal, which means he can play in the Challenge Cup quarter-final next week.
