    http://www.saintsrlfc.com/news/page/6933

    TOMMY Makinson is set to make his 150th appearance for the club after being named in Saints' 19-man squad for Saturday's Magic Weekend fixture with Hull FC.

    The 25-year-old has scored 574 points since making his debut against Salford in 2011.

    He joins an unchanged 19 which will be overseen by new head coach Justin Holbrook for the first time.

    Sean Long and Jamahl Lolesi remain in temporary charge of the side.

    Saints will choose their 17 from:

    2. Tommy Makinson, 3. Ryan Morgan, 4. Mark Percival, 5. Adam Swift, 6. Theo Fages, 7. Matty Smith, 8. Alex Walmsley, 9. James Roby, 10. Kyle Amor, 12. Jon Wilkin, 13. Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, 14. Luke Douglas, 16. Luke Thompson, 17. Tommy Lee, 18. Dominique Peyroux, 19. Greg Richards, 20. Morgan Knowles, 28. Regan Grace, 36. Zeb Taia.

    The Powerpuff girls in the pack against Hull FC is a frightening prospect.

    Who do you suggest we play in the pack then ?
    In my head you're still alive. I know it's a lie, but it's one I like.
    I can still feel you pull on my arm when I was afraid to go.

    That's statement is a little contradictory .." with Justin Holbrook overseeing the side but Long and Lolesi in temporary charge". Is he here yet or managing via Skype? 😎

    I bet the players are wetting themselves ........a new coach divorced from the previous regimes. I reckon we will put up a much improved performance full of guts and big hitting.

    We may lose because we have a poor team but I am sure the lads will at least be up for this one COYS

    I hope so.

    I do think us lot can play our part too. A negative mood in the the stands would some rub off but I'm confident that the travelling support will at least start off in full voice and in a supportive frame of mind.

    Unless any of them are unbelievably arrogant they should all be aware they are potentially playing for their place at the club, not just in the 17.

    I've been thinking about this. Initially I thought we would see a response in the Wigan game (if any) but knowing that Holbrook is watching live for the first time and no doubt he will be in the changing room at some point, we may actually see a response in this game. Am not saying we will win but at the very least I hope we are competitive.Far too often in the past, we have treated Magic Weekend like a testimonial game.

    I think we have won 1 Magic game in the last 5. Just so happened to be the year 1 year I didn't go!

    Trying to think of a way we can shake things up with that 19 but I can't think of anything.

    Makinson, Swift, Morgan, Percival, Grace, Fages, Smith, Douglas, Roby, Walmsley, Taia, Wilkin, Thompson. Subs: Amor, LMS, Richards, Knowles.

    I don't particularly expect any changes but I'd be the same as you, Walker for Richards.

    So after one of the worst performances of the super league era not a single player loses their place? I know nobody has a large enough squad to make mass changes but that's a nonsense

    I actually saw that he'd played last night and thought to myself well that rules him out of this weekend. I'm having a shocker today mate.

    Am I the only one that finds it more than coincidental that Holbrook's arrival is at the same time as the announcement of Rolf Harris's release. If my suspicions are correct, the kids in Saints team should hope that they get no more than a kick up the ......

    So why did you put him in your initial team and have just taken him out?

    I'd have liked Walker in the squad. If it were me in charge i'd give Swift a run at centre with Morgan his winger. I have no faith in Morgans defence at centre.
