SAINTS skipper Paul Wellens needs one point to reach 1,000 for his career.
Wellens has scored 953 points (218 tries, 40 goals, one drop goal) for Saints since 1998.
He has also scored 18 points for Great Britain (four tries and one goal), 16 for England (four tries) and 12 for Lancashire ( three tries).
The Star understands that the long serving 33-year-old is edging closer to signing a new 12-month contract at Saints.
