LEWIS Dodd marked his second Saints run-out off the bench with his first senior try in the 48-6 win over Wakefield.

Dodd initially replaced James Roby at 9 with 25 minutes to go, but then moves into the halves.

He certainly had more involvement this week, and put in a couple of neat kicks.

Coach Kristian Woolf said: "He really enjoyed that try and has a great confidence about him.

"He has got a great future - he's a really good player and you can see when he goes out there that he belongs at this level.

"It was good to get him a bit of time in both positions as well. A bit at 9, because that is good for his development with the physicality and the need to be on the ball all the time is really good for him.

"I put him in the halves for a little while to give him a taste.

"I rate him as a player and it was great to see him take his opportunity.

"If there was an opportunity to play him in the halves we wanted to give him that.

"It is tough to change your halves in the middle of the game and expect blokes to go out there and make it work straight away, so we always had that fall back of playing him at 9 and giving Robes a rest.

"He's got a smart kicking game and defended really well as well."
