THE new rugby league season is upon us and Star readers can take advantage of a special subscription offer that will provide readers with unrivalled coverage of Saints.

We’re giving our readers the chance to sign up for a five-month trial (£5 for the first 5 months) or to pay £36 for an annual subscription (30 per cent annual discount).

The Star is investing in its rugby league coverage, with Mike Critchley - one of the sport’s leading writers producing more in-depth features to keep readers informed and entertained.

Subscribers will get full access to all these features, Q&As and the latest news.

It also provides access to the digital e-edition of the Star’s weekly newspaper.

Star editor Andrew Kilmurray said: "The Star is delivering bigger and better rugby league coverage than ever before - with unrivalled insight and analysis.

“In Mike, we're lucky to have one of the sport's most authoritative voices and best writers, who is respected across the game.

“This kind of quality sports journalism does take investment - which is why the Star's print edition is now widely available on the news stands for people who want to buy a copy and why some of our content is subscriber only.

“Your support enables us to deliver the kind of writing that this brilliant sport deserves.

“With this offer on it's a great opportunity to sign up and get full access to Saints coverage and writing across the season.
