Dual-Reg Working Well For Saints

Saints' dual-registration partnership with Leigh Centurions is delivering at the start of the season.

The partnership has seen Saints first-team squad members Jack Ashworth, Matty Costello, Danny Richardson and Aaron Smith all play games for the Centurions.

Meanwhile, Luke Douglas has also played as part of a loan deal that is now a rolling week-to-week after an initial one-month agreement.

The partnership gives Saints the flexibility to allow players from week to week, the chance for competitive action, rather than being restricted to just training, if they are not selected in the starting line-up.

Saints Head Coach, Justin Holbrook commented: “We have a strong squad of players here at the Club and that depth means that we will have some players who are just outside of the matchday 17 each week. If some of these guys are too old to play for the under-19s, they are not able to play and push themselves into contention.

We would ideally want a reserves competition for these players to take part in, but the dual-reg partnership with Leigh is our best option to get players who aren’t in the 17, much needed game time.

Players should be playing as much as they can. Over in Australia, there are plenty of good players who aren’t in the 17 who have to play games for their feeder clubs. How else can you earn your way back in?

The Championship is a good standard and it will certainly keep players sharp when they aren’t able to make it into our starting 17.”
