SAINTS wing Tommy Makinson had surgery to repair damage to his dislocated shoulder on Friday morning.

The operation went well and the current Golden Boot and last year's leading try scorer will be fine for the start of the new season.

Makinson had to miss the Great Britain tour after sustaining the injury in the Grand Final. He did play on and completed the game, but the injury needed to be corrected.
