SAINTS' Joseph Paulo had a special reason to celebrate his first try in the club's colours at Warrington last Thursday.

The forward went over for his first try of the season in the second half of Saints' 30-12 triumph at Warrington, as the team picked up a third win in the league over the Wolves this season.

Paulo, who joined Saints on a three-year deal in the close season after a career in the NRL with Penrith, Parramatta and Cronulla, was the beneficiary from some neat footwork from prop Kyle Amor who set him up for the score straight from a goal-line dropout.

And the Samoan and USA international certainly celebrated the try along with his delighted teammates.

Following the match, Paulo revealed his relief as the try meant he has avoided the traditional 'forfeit' for players who go through the season without scoring a try.

The traditional rugby league forfeit for players who go a whole season 'tryless' is having to do a ‘naked run’.

Paulo posted his relief on Instagram following the try.

"Off the nudie run courtesy of marras dazzling footwork #COYS" he wrote.

In 2012, ex-Saints Australian prop Josh Perry went the season without getting over the try line.

However, he decided to undertake his 'nude run' on Prescot Road as players let off steam in the Eccleston Arms pub for a fancy dress.

Perry was spotted by police and later fined after being taken to a police station.
