SAINTS play their only pre-season game ahead of the Super League season today at home to Hull FC (2pm).

The game kicks off England international Jonny Lomax's testimonial year - his 11th season in the Saints first team.

New boys Kevin Naiqama, Lachlan Coote, Joseph Paulo and Joe Batchelor will all feature.

Meanwhile Alex Walmsley will make his eagerly awaited return after being out of action since breaking a bone in his neck last March.

Justin Holbrook has picked a strong squad, and will have a good look at them in the first hour before rewarding some of the younger players in the last quarter.
