St Helens duo Jack Welsby and Jonny Lomax are the bookies’ joint-favourites to win the Harry Sunderland Trophy during this Saturday’s Super League Grand Final.

After winning his second appeal and becoming available for the clash, Morgan Knowles is joint-third favourite at 10/1. 

Welsby, 21, is priced at 5/1 alongside team-mate Lomax, who has the same odds.

Veteran hooker and former England international James Roby is 7/1, the second favourite, with St Helens dominating the favourites list.

Leeds’ Blake Austin is priced at 10/1 and has the best odds for a Rhinos player. He is joined alongside Knowles and Tommy Makinson at that price.

Meanwhile, semi-final two-try-scorer Joe Batchelor is priced at 12/1 alongside Jon Bennison, Richie Myler and Will Hopoate.

Ireland international and Leeds back-rower James Bentley, who crossed twice against Wigan, is priced at 16/1. 

Returning goal-kicker Rhyse Martin, who has served his two-match ban, is also priced at 16/1.
