JONNY is a full back who can virtually play in any ‘back' position.
He broke into the first team squad in 2011 following injuries and made his selection a foregone conclusion for the rest of the season.
His partnership with Lee Gaskell - dubbed #lomaskell - was debuted for the first team against Leeds in March and neither looked back guiding Saints to the 2011 Grand Final.
Lightning quick off the mark and a great rugby league brain, Jonny's performances led him to be selected for the England Knights and then the full Elite train on squad.
Unfortunately, he missed out on the Four Nations with ankle ligament damage and another injury curtailed his chances in the 2012 Autumn International series.
He made his debut against Wakefield at full back in 2009 and also appeared on the wing scoring two tries in eight competent performances.
2010 was even better, with 92 points in 16 games and he bagged nine tries in 2011 including a crucial score at the DW Stadium in the playoffs.
In 2012, 157 points were added to the Saints cause as Lomax matured.
2013 was a frustrating time for the Saints and Lomax as he had several weeks out of the side due to injury. But, he moved to the full back position and immediately established himself as one of the best in the competition.
He will be key to Saints success this season as he becomes an attacking pivot in a side blessed with strike.

Tommy is a winger who took Super League by storm in 2011.
He made his debut against Salford in February but it was when Ade Gardner got injured that the youngster came into his own.
He played 22 matches for the club and scored 12 tries as well as kicking six goals.
He produced that and more in 2012 giving him a real shot at international honours.
An England Knights call up came in 2013, alongside a season that saw him emerge as one of the most potent finishers in the game.
Lightning quick, with good positioning, Tommy isn't afraid to take the ball up to the line to relieve his forwards and get stuck in.

JORDAN joined Saints on a two-year contract from Hull FC in 2012, but extended his deal for a further three seasons during 2013.
Predominately a centre, he played at Stand Off for the England Knights the end of the 2012 season, but is also versatile enough to play in the back row.
A former England under 18s Academy International and Captain, Turner joined Hull FC from Salford City Reds in 2010.
He possesses good feet, a great turn of pace and has also matured into an excellent defender too.
Jordan had an outstanding 2013 season, getting better as the year progressed to prove he was one of the most potent weapons in the Saints arsenal.
His partnership with Tommy Makinson will be exciting to watch this year.

JOSH made his debut against Warrington in March 2012 a centre and looked like he'd been there all his life.
In one performance he made the position his own and played 20 matches, scoring 12 tries.
Originally from Chorley, Josh joined the club when he was 13 from Blackbrook but previously played for Leyland Warriors and Chorley Panthers.
He was England 15 and 16s captain and toured Australia with Saints Academy in 2009.
2013 saw Josh play in centre and second row and he was one of the key performers as Saints recovered from a mid-season dip in form to reach the playoffs.

ADAM is a utility back who played four times for Saints in 2012 and scored five tries whilst continuing to manage a HNC mechanical engineering apprenticeship.
He made his debut away at Widnes in April 2012 and scored a hat-trick.
2013 was his breakout season as he added 13 tries in 11 matches - including two when Saints beat Wigan in a dramatic clash in July.
One of the hardest working players off the field, Adam takes over the number 5 shirt from Francis Meli, who was his centre as Saints began their run up to the play-offs.
He's quick, has a great side step and is solid under the high ball.

WORLD Cup Winner Hohaia joined Saints on a four-year deal in 2011.
The 28-year-old played 29 times for the Kiwis and made 185 appearances for the New Zealand Warriors - a club which he made his debut for in 2002.
He stands at 175 cms tall and tips the scales at 86kg and partnered Jonny Lomax in the half-backs in 2012 season.
Nathan Brown used him in a variety of positions in 2013 and his partnership with Jon Wilkin in the halves was one of the reasons Saints progressed to the playoffs.
At home at scrum half, full back and hooker, Lance is a true utility player whose speed and decision making will be crucial to the club in 2014.
He is also a rock-solid defender and has a good kicking game.
Lance is sponsored by Robinsons.
IF Saints lacked an out and out half back in 2013, they certainly won't in 2014.
Penrith Panther Luke Walsh joined on a two-year contract, with an option for a further year.
He made his first grade debut in 2007 for the Knights before joining Penrith at the start of the 2009 season.
He scored the opening try on his Panthers' debut and immediately became their first choice half back. He was also named the club's Players' Player of the Year in 2011.
If Saints fans were in any doubt of his calibre - his performances after he put pen to paper for the club were nothing short of outstanding as Penrith climbed the table.
He is a good organiser and possesses a great kicking game too
He will link up with teammate Mose Masoe in 2014.
Luke is sponsored by Downstream Building Services.
MOSE Masoe is sure to be a fans' favourite at Saints standing at six foot four and the best part of 18 stone.
His performances in the World Cup saw defenders trailing at his wake and the opposition shuddering from his bone crunching hits.
Mose joined Sydney Roosters' junior system in 2008 before making his first grade debut in 2010 against the Gold Coast.
The powerful Kiwi then joined Penrith Panthers and played four times for Samoa in the World Cup.

MAN of Steel in 2007, 'Robes' learnt from the great Keiron Cunningham to become of the World's best hookers.
Despite his diminutive stature he plays as if he is six inches taller and twenty kilograms heavier! His dummy runs lay the platform for the ‘go-forward' at the club and he has a great turn of pace.
He made his Saints debut in March 2004 aged 18 and his inexorable rise saw him represent Great Britain before his 21st birthday, an achievement made even more remarkable by the fact that he had a low-key junior record.
He was runner-up in the Young Player of the Year Award for Super League X as he established himself as Cunningham's deputy.
2007 saw Robes become the country's best impact player - a feat which continued throughout 2008 and the World Cup.
In 2009 rule changes around the ruck curtailed much of his fast off the mark play, but he still remained an integral part of the team - as proved in 2010 when he was one of the best hookers in the competition.
His stand out performances in the 2010 Four Nations campaign saw NRL clubs chasing his signature, but he opted to sign a four-year contract with his hometown club.
He took over from Cunningham in 2011 and became the Club's top metre maker and tackling machine as well as being able to play for 80 minutes - making him the best pound for pound player in Super League.
And that continued in 2012 as he took the metre maker award once more and was at the hub of everything Saints did.
Last season was disrupted by injury and surgery to both ankles but his return sparked Saints best form - and gave him a deserved place in England's World Cup squad.
Roby signed a five-year contract with the club in the off-season thereby committing the rest of his career to Saints.

ENGLAND prop forward Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook joined Saints from Harlequins in 2011.
He made his first team debut for Harlequins in 2005 and made close to 100 appearances before heading north.
Equally adept at leading from the front row and as an impact forward, he made more than 2100 metres for the Quins in 2010 and has a great off-load.
LMS made his debut against Wigan at the 2011 ‘Millennium Magic' event and established himself as a real crowd favourite... even though his ‘name is too long'.
He made his international debut for England against Wales in 2008.
At 27-years-old, Louie is still maturing as a prop forward and coach Nathan Brown says he still has a lot of scope for improvement.

SIA Soliola's bone crunching hits have become a real highlight at Langtree Park.
The 6ft 3" second rower joined the club in 2009 after making more than 90 appearances for the Roosters and crossing the whitewash on 20-plus occasions.
He made his Saints debut at the beginning of the 2010 season before ankle ligaments ruled him out for six weeks. His return against Warrington Wolves in the second row was a success but he ruptured his patella tendon in training and was expected to miss the entire campaign.
However, Sia came back before the end of the season and was pivotal in the side's run to the 2010 Grand Final.
He proved to be an absolute monster in 2011 in both the centre and second row positions and in 2012 he probably had his best season to date taking home the Supporters Player of the Year award.
Sia was ruled out for part of the 2013 season through injury but like a number of his teammates returned for the playoff run.

A REAL ambassador for Rugby League, Jon was signed from Hull KR in the summer of 2002 and has become an important part of the first team.
A great passer with quick feet, strong defence and vision, he has racked up 68 tries since his debut in 2003 and scored two tries in the 2006 Challenge Cup Final at Twickenham... with a broken nose.
Since then he has become a complete player - being able to combine defence with attack and a great kicking game too.
In 2011 he probably displayed his best form to date and was an integral part of the England Four Nations side and the one that faced the Exiles.
He then captained England in 2012 against the Exiles.
2013 was a difficult season for Jon but one he took head on.
He was drafted into the scrum half slot for most of the year and performed superbly even though he knew it could curtail his chance of playing for England in the World Cup.
That unfortunately did happen, but Wilkin received consolation in a number of awards at the end of the year, including his own teammates' player of the year award.
Although he doesn't like the term, Jon is media savvy, a great asset to the sport and will continue to be the face of Rugby League for the foreseeable future.

WILLIE joined Saints from Hull FC on a two-year contract where he enjoyed a six seasons.
He originally joined them from Castleford in 2007 and was their Player of the Year in 2011.
A devastating runner with a phenomenal work rate, Manu is one of the league's top tackle bust makers.
A Tongan international, he has also played for Wests Tigers, South Sydney Rabbithos and St George-Illawarra in the NRL.
A hamstring injury disrupted his 2013 campaign but he returned to be one of Saints pivotal strike players down the left hand side.

PAUL is one of the stalwarts of the Saints and has been an integral part of the Club's success over the last 15 seasons.
Known locally as ‘Mr St Helens' Wello has been an ambassador of the full back position in Rugby League since his debut in 1998.
Following his domination of the #1 spot in 2006 when he won the Man of Steel Award, Players' Player of the Year, Rugby League Writers' Player of the Year, Saints' Official Player of the Year and Saints' Supporters Player of the Year, in 2007 he became more productive scoring 24 tries in all competitions.
In 2008, he won the Lance Todd trophy for the second consecutive year for one of the most dominant full back displays ever to grace Wembley.
2009 saw a return of 16 tries as he became pivotal in Saints' attack and in 2010 he clocked up 20.
2011 added another 14 tries to his tally and he surpassed not only 200 career four-pointers but also played in his 400th game for the club.
And last season was another superb one in terms of try production as he became a leader on and off the field as captain for the historic 2012 campaign at Langtree Park.
2013 saw the emergence of Jonny Lomax at full back but that didn't damper Wellens' contribution. He played at stand-off and also came off the bench to have a real impact.

ALEX came to Saints from Batley Bulldogs and was one of the real finds of the season.
Signed on a three-year contract, he made his debut at home against Hull FC and went on to make 26 appearances for the club.
Considering in consecutive seasons he played for GB Students, Dewsbury Celtic and Batley, his transition to Super League season was remarkable.
An uncut diamond, his go forward had people talking about early international honours at such a tender age.
It's clear Alex has the attributes to go very far in the game.

THE former Blackbrook amateur broke into the first team in 2005 and hasn't looked back.
Aged 16 he was named Saints under 18 Player of the Year in a squad that reached the Grand Final.
His other highlight of that season was going with the St Helens under 16 side on the tour of Australia were they won their three games on tour including a win against the highly-rated Penrith Panthers side that weeks earlier had beaten the New Zealand under-16s.
The back-rower made his Super League debut in July 2005 against Hull and his safe, strong running style and no nonsense tackling have made him a regular starter ever since.
2008 proved to be another successful year for Cloughie - scoring a hat trick at the Halliwell Jones Stadium against Warrington and picking up another Challenge Cup Winners Medal to boot.
In 2009 season he was the only ‘ever-present' in the team and he was one of the hubs of the pack in 2010.
Like a number of players, his 2011 season was cut short by injury - a neck problem sustained in the win at Leeds. He spent the best part of 15 weeks on the sidelines, and then turned his ankle on his return.
But he returned to his good form in 2012 and was rewarded with a three-year contract.
Paul was used sparingly in 2013 and is on loan to Widnes in 2014.

THE Cumbrian flyer joined Saints from Barrow Border Raiders in October 2001 and immediately demonstrated his pace and form as a great attacking option. He established himself as a first team regular in 2003, and made his 200th appearance in 2009.
Despite saying he had a "shocking" game against Brisbane in the World Club Challenge in 2007, he scored two tries that rocked the Aussie Champions and sent Saints on their way to victory.
He was the club's highest try scorer in the 2006, 2007 and 2008 Super League seasons scoring an impressive 31 tries - making him the Super League's top try scorer in 2008.
His 2011 campaign had rave reviews until he suffered a serious Achilles tear that curtailed his season.
A knee problem curtailed his 2012 season - again following a superb run of form that had him earning plaudits from the coach and the fans.
2013 was disrupted by injury and the GB international will be looking for a problem free campaign this time round.

GARY is a good footballer and who you would categorise as a classic number 6 although he has excelled in the centres as of late.
Signed from Blackbrook he represented England at under 15s and 16s and toured with the winning Saints Academy side to Australia in 2006.
He deputised in the backs last season as injury took hold and proved to be one of the most versatile members in the squad playing centre and wing.
But various injuries caused his 2010, 2011 and 2012 campaigns to be interrupted.
However, in 2012 he displayed his great footwork and speed to establish himself as a centre.

SAINTS have signed Shannon McDonnell until the end of the season.
The 26-year-old full back joins as a free agent having previously been with Hull FC.
"Shannon is a great addition for us," Saints Head Coach Nathan Brown said. "He has a lot of experience in his position and will add strength and depth to our squad.
"Losing Jonny Lomax for the rest of the year has seen Paul Wellens move back to a position he has played in for most of his career.
"If he wasn't available or we needed him to play elsewhere then we don't have anyone with that amount of experience to play in one of the toughest positions in the game.
"Bringing in Shannon means we have someone with a lot of experience to fill that role.
"He has already joined up with our squad and if everything goes well then he will play a game with one of our partnership clubs next week. We can then see where he is at.
"This is a great deal for us and a bonus for Shannon as he can play at a club that is doing well and showcase his talent to Super League and the rest of the world."
Shannon is predominately a full back who has played for Wests Tigers and Newcastle Knights in the NRL.
He represented New South Wales at Under 19s and was an Australian Junior Kangaroo.
In 2011, he moved to Hull KR and two years later joined their rivals at the KC Stadium.
As well as making more than 100 career appearances, he played for the Exiles in 2012.
"I'm pleased to be part of this club," Shannon said. "It has great traditions, coaching staff and players and this is a good opportunity for me to come and play rugby league again.
"I am keen to get training and playing and I will get my head down and take each game as it comes.
"I like to play off the cuff and be consistent in both defence and attack. I am a full back but I will stick my hand up to play wherever the coach wants me to."
