SAINTS will not go for a quick fix to fill the coaching vacancy created by the axing of coach Keiron Cunningham.

It is possible that the coaching team of Jamahl Lolesi, Sean Long and Derek Traynor may well extend until the end of the season.

The club have stressed that the only appointment will be one for the longer term and not just this season only.

Saints say if the right person for the job becomes available before the year is out, then they will be brought in.

For the time being all three will be in charge and there is no head coach as such.

Speaking today Lolesi confirmed that Long will take more of a role with Saints' attack, after being in charge of defence under Cunningham.

And Paul Wellens will be brought back into the first team coaching set up to add an extra pair of eyes in review.
