Ali Lauitiiti has returned from injury to take his place in the Wakefield Trinity Wildcats’ 19-man squad for Thursday’s Super League clash with Widnes Vikings.

Lauitiiti’s return is one of three changes to the squad that was named to face Leeds Rhinos last week. Pita Godinet and Daniel Smith both miss out with knee injuries, with Godinet facing a prolonged spell on the sidelines while Smith’s injury is not as serious.

Matty Wildie and Chris Annakin come into the squad with Annakin having served his five-match suspension. Max Jowitt is the other player to drop out from the squad named last week.

Wildcats squad: Mathers, Lyne, Sykes, Anderson, McShane (c), Raleigh, Lauitiiti, Washbrook, Wildie, Ryan, Moore, Tautai, Keinhorst, Annakin, Scruton, Riley, Owen, Gilmour, T Smith.
