SAINTS collected their first trophy of the season last night with a second successive League Leaders Shield.

With an 18-point lead at the Super League summit, Saints had the top spot wrapped up ages ago,

But last night they got the chance to celebrate after a hard-fought 4-0 win over Castleford which did much to lift spirits after last week's Wembley defeat.

Former Grand Final winning coach Ellery Hanley presented the shield and the medals to the players.

Bernard Platt compiled the pictures for this gallery.
