THE final part of our review of the year looks at international call ups and the preparation for the new season.
Saints players made their tips for Man of Steel – with Danny Houghton the squad’s popular choice.
Internationally, Calvin Wellington, Ben Morris and Regan Grace were named in Wales’ World Cup Qualifier squad whilst Jonny Lomax and Mark Percival received England Four Nation’s nods.
Adam would later be selected for Scotland alongside new signing Luke Douglas.
Paul Sculthorpe MBE joined the England Rugby League staff.
Aaron Smith, Liam Cooper, Jonah Cunningham, Ben Morris, Josh Eaves, Rob Fairclough and Matty Lees all put pen to paper on deals that saw them promoted into the first team squad for the 2017 Betfred Super League campaign.
Kyle Amor and Jon Wilkin signed extensions; Amor remaining at the club until 2020 whilst Wilkin penned a two year deal.
And pre-season got underway in earnest with Keiron Cunningham and his coaching staff putting the players through their paces.
Many thanks to all Saints fans who have followed the club this season – onwards and upwards to 2017!
