Squad to face Swinton named

Head Coach Paul Wellens has named his first squad for 2024 ahead of the Saints' first Pre-Season Friendly against Swinton Lions on Saturday (20th January), which kicks off at the Totally Wicked Stadium at 2pm!

The Red V take on dual-registration partners Swinton in their first taste of match action this year and Wellens has named a youthful 23-man squad for the fixture.

Nine of the 2024 First Team are included with the headline inclusions being; Konrad Hurrell, Jon Bennison, Ben Davies, Sam Royle and McKenzie Buckley.

Three of our Academy graduates who joined the senior squad for 2024 are also included; Dayon Sambou, Noah Stephens and Jonny Vaughan. Hooker Jake Burns progressed up from our Reserves side and into the First Team and is also named in Wellens’ side for Saturday afternoon.

Eight members of our Reserves outfit will be keen to step up in their first runs out in preparation for the new season, as will six players from the Saints Academy who will be eager to get some valuable experience.

14 of the 23 players selected by Paul Wellens were part of our Academy Grand Final winning squad in late September 2023.
