SAINTS Reserve fixture that was due to be played before tomorrow's Super League game has been postponed at the request of Newcastle Thunder under the Covid-19 protocols.

The scheduled 12 noon curtain raiser was supposed to be the start of the double header, but Covid has hit Newcastle's backroom staff and so the game has had to be postponed.

This postponement not affect Saints first team Betfred Super League fixture against Hull KR which will still kick off at 3pm.

However the TWS turnstiles will now open at 1.30pm (rather than 11:45am).

Details of the re-arranged Reserves fixture will be announced in due course.
