Jamie Foster has massive point to prove against Saints
3:14pm Wednesday 20th February 2013 in Sport
SAINTS old boy Jamie Foster will be out to make a point on Saturday when he faces his hometown team for the first time.
The goalkicking sensation was cast adrift by Saints last term - ironically after a shocking display against Bulls.
After failing to get a way back in via the reserves, Foster spent the remainder of last term out on loan to Hull.
But he joined Bulls in the off-season.
Saints’ acting skipper Jon Wilkin expects a big display from his former teammate.
He said: “Jamie Foster is St Helens through and through and will be excited to play against his old team mates.
“We will be excited to play against him and a few of our big boys might have their cross hairs set on him.
“But he will be wanting to show Saints that they were wrong to let him go.”
Matchday rivalries apart, Wilkin said he admires the confidence and personality of a man who can talk about modelling and hairdressing and then step on to a rugby league field.
“I hope he goes well at Bradford. He is a different character to the stereotypical rugby player and I kind of encourage that.
“Some people are offended by how forward and brash he is, but I like Jamie – he is not a run of the mill Super League player and is a good personality.
“He has a flamboyant confidence that divides opinion.”
