The influential lock has not played for Saints this season due to a ruptured bicep.

Jamie Elliott also made his first appearance of the campaign, coming off the bench for the Wanderers at the break.

Elliott had been sidelined with a shoulder injury, but will now hope to force his way into the first-team in the coming weeks.
