We go behind Friday’s fixture to find out who is set to reach a personal milestone...


James Roby is just one appearance away from 400 for the club.

He made his debut as a substitute in a 38-20 win against Widnes at Knowsley Road on March 19 2004 and he also needs just three tries to reach a century of touchdowns for the club.

You can read an extended interview with Roby in this week’s programme.

Tommy Makinson needs three tries to reach a century of touchdowns for Saints. He has scored 97 tries in 167 games since 2011.

Jonny Lomax needs eight points to reach 500 for the club. His total 492 has been reached with 71 tries, 103 goals and 2 field goals in 158 games for us since 2009.
