THE countdown clock is ticking - and in three weeks time the biggest derby in rugby league will kick off Super League when last year’s table-toppers Saints entertain Grand Final winners Wigan in what will be a blood-and-thunder opener.

A huge crowd will pack into the Totally Wicked Stadium on Thursday, 31 January as Super League chiefs aim to start the season with a bang.

The cauldron like atmosphere will certainly bring new NRL boys Lachlan Coote, Kevin Naiqama and Joseph Paulo up to speed with what life at Saints is all about.
