SAINTS will be presented with the League Leaders' Shield at their home match against Castleford Tigers later this month.

The 2019 Betfred Super League Leader's Shield will be presented at the Round 27 home game against the Tigers at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Friday, August 30 - the week after Wembley.

Saints were confirmed as winners of the League Leaders' Shield for the second year running earlier this month and currently have a 14-point advantage at the top of the table.

Saints have become the first club to retain the Shield since their own run of four in a row from 2005 to 2008.

It is Saints' seventh Shield since the trophy's inception in the Super League era in 2003.
