Former Saints captain Jon Wilkin will reach a memorable milestone today when he makes his 500th career appearance.
Wilkin joined Saints in 2002 from Hull KR and went on to become an integral part of the club’s success making 424 appearances over a trophy-ladened 16 years winning the Super League Grand Final in 2006 and 2014, four Challenge Cups and the 2007 World Club Challenge.
And if selected, the former Saints forward will pull on his Toronto Wolfpack shirt for the 15th time against Swinton Lions today (Sunday) which will mark a landmark 500th career appearance.
The 35 year old started his career at Hull KR making 39 appearances between 2000 and 2002 before moving to Saints. He went on to play six times for Great Britain and made 16 appearances for England.
Everyone at St.Helens R.F.C wants to thank Jon for all the memories and his dedication over his 16 years at the club and we congratulate him on such a phenomenal achievement.
