Saints take on Hull KR at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Sunday with kick off at 1pm and we have all the information you need right here in our match preview!
Saints head into this one on the back of three straight wins following the restart – the latter a hard fought victory over the Castleford Tigers. We’ve only conceded six points in those three games, having nilled both Leeds and Castleford in our last two encounters. The Saints sit second in the Super League table, two points behind Wigan who face the Tigers on Saturday after the Warriors clash with Catalans was postponed after a number of Dragons players tested positive for Covid-19.
Hull KR on the other hand have won just one game all season and sit bottom of the table on two points. They have played just one game since the restart and were defeated by 40 points to 10 against Warrington in Round 8.
Of course the game is again being played behind closed doors with no fans. Although if you have purchased your cardboard CUT-OUT you may see yourself in the stadium.
We also have a select few Totally Wicked Saints Fans, who this week are all Key Workers, representing us on Sky Sports Live Broadcast! Look out for your chance to represent the Saints at future Behind Closed Doors games.
