Eventful Saints opener in Warrington
5:28pm Monday 10th February 2014 in Sport
SAINTS will open the season on an eventful night at Warrington Wolves.
Matches between the rivals are always full of drama, controversy, twists and turns, and there is always the unpredictability factor of the first game to a new campaign.
Wolves will also be marking The Halliwell Jones Stadium’s 10th anniversary on the night.
Supporters will have the chance to listen to the voice of Michael Collings, a finalist in Britain’s Got Talent in 2011 and renowned for his rendition of ‘Fast Car’ with more than 25 million views on YouTube.

It will also be an occasion to say goodbye to an old friend and one of rugby league's most colourful characters.
Saints and Wolves legend Alex Murphy OBE will lead a host of former Warrington players in a minute’s applause in memory of Roy ‘Ockher’ Aspinall.
Roy, who died last month aged 76 and hailed from Thatto Heath in St Helens, was kitman and groundsman at Warrington's former Wilderspool Stadium home for more than 30 years.
