THIS week's St Helens Star features a special 16-page supplement previewing Saints' new season in Super League.

Written by the Star's rugby league writer Mike Critchley, the range of features offer an in-depth insight into the club's pre-season preparations and aims for the new campaign.

It also looks at how the squad is shaping up for the new season.

Mike has been speaking to the likes of Paul Wellens, new skipper Jonny Lomax, Jack Welsby, Alex Walmsley and strength and conditioning coach Matty Daniels.

Star editor Andrew Kilmurray said: "The Star is delivering bigger and better rugby league coverage than ever before - with unrivalled insight and analysis.

"In Mike, we're lucky to have one of the sport's most authoritative voices and best writers, who is respected across the game.

"Reading these in-depth features will really get our readers ready and knowledgeable ahead of the new campaign 

"This kind of quality sports journalism does take investment - which is why the Star's print edition is now widely available on the news stands for people who want to buy a copy.

"We also have a great offer on digital subscriptions on our website at present - which gives readers full access to all these articles online - and also allows you to read page by page of the feature via the digital e-edition.
