FOR the first time in the Super League era a Saints v Wigan derby clash will not be televised.

Sky have instead opted to take their camera to Headingley on Friday, July 12 for the relegation battle between Leeds and Hull KR.

It should have one positive spin-off for Saints - with the lack of cameras boosting the crowd.

The mid summer fixture does not normally attract as big a gate as the traditional Good Friday game - but this news should prompt a stampede for tickets.
