St Helens will have a pitch inspection today to decide whether the New Year's Day Norweb Challenge second leg against Wigan goes ahead. If the freeze causes a postponement, the match will be restaged at Knowsley Road, probably on Sunday, but will not be moved to Central Park, which has undersoil heating. Wigan won the first leg 32-22 at Central Park on Boxing Day.

The Salford forwards Cliff Eccles and Mark Lee have undergone elbow operations, but will be fit for the start of the new Super League season in mid-March.
