St Helens' Australian prop Anthony Laffranchi will miss today's Super League match at Castleford Tigers after being granted compassionate leave.

Laffranchi, 32, who has made 18 appearances this season, has been replaced in Saints' 19-man squad by Stuart Howarth.

"Boof will return home immediately and everyone at Saints sends him their best wishes," said a club spokesman.
