THREE Saints players have been selected for the 2020 Betfred Super League Dream Team.

Powerhouse prop Alex Walmsley, who has made a huge impression on the 2020 campaign since the resumption, makes his second appearance in Dream Team; his first was in 2015.

Meanwhile stand-off Jonny Lomax, who narrowly missed out to Blake Austin and Jackson Hastings last year, returns to the team in 2020.

It is a recognition for Lomax topping the try assists this season and consistently high-quality performances.

Meanwhile, industrious and smart loose forward Morgan Knowles retains his spot from last year in the 13.

There is a large spread across the competition this year with players from eight teams in the 13.

Wigan Warriors Bevan French, top of the season statistics for tackle busts and clean breaks, and second for tries scored, is joined by Salford Red Devils winger Krisnan Inu and the Warrington Wolves pair of centre Toby King, who finished the season top of the offloads charts, and prop Mike Cooper, making his first appearance in a stellar 14-year career.

Steve Prescott MBE Man of Steel panellist Jason Robinson said: “It is a credit to the players and the competition that so many different Super League teams are represented in this year’s Dream Team.

“A good barometer is to sometimes look at the strength of the list of players who have missed out, and there are some wonderful talents that are just outside this top 13.

“I have really enjoyed the emergence of some of the young players in the game who have adapted to first team life so well and there are others who are slightly older who really made their mark in Super League - I think Ash Handley and Toby King are good examples of that.”
