Tommy Sets Defence Case

TOMMY Makinson has made the case for the defence ahead of this Friday’s First Utility Super League clash with Castleford Tigers.

The winger bagged his first try of the season last week and is looking for more of the same when the two sides meet at Langtree Park.

“They are a great side with a fair number of strike players,” he said. “They like to give the ball some air time – and it works with good finishers, halves and forwards.

“We will have to get our defence right against them and then we can move the ball. It is important for us to pick up as many points as we can.”

Tommy had a disrupted pre-season due to injury but is pleased to have put that behind him with a solid performance last Friday at Hull KR.

He continued: “I’m enjoying being back out there and with my teammates. It’s been good to strike up a partnership with Dominique Peyroux too.

“I have been blessed over the years to play with some really good centres. Michael Shenton, Jordan Turner and Mark Percival for instance – and now I have a great one in Dominique Peyroux.

“I have to be honest and say I hadn’t heard of him before he came over but that he was an NRL player and decent one at that.

“He has added a lot to our team. He is strong, defends well and had a nice skillset. I’m enjoying playing for him and he can only do good things for us.”

Saints take on Castleford Tigers in the fourth round of the First Utility Super League on Friday March 4 at Langtree Park.

The game will kick off at 8pm.
