Backs to the Wall

  • Last time Saints played London, all of our backs scored a try (see ‘Last Time at the Totally Wicked, below).
  • Whoever has played left centre has scored in the past 3 games against London (Meli x2 – August 2013, Dawson x1 – May 2014 and Percival x2 – July 2014).
  • Both wingers have scored a try in the last 2 home games against London (Makinson and Swift both times)
  • The last Saints player to score a hat-trick against London in the League was Tom Armstrong, who played left wing in the last ever game played by the London club under the guise of ‘Harlequins RL’
  • Greg Richards made one appearance for Saints against London in 2013. Other former Saints returning in the 19 man squad are Matty Fozard and Matty Fleming – but Ryan Morgan misses out.
  • Luke Thompson made his debut in 2013, in a defeat against the Broncos – for who former Saint Tommy Lee scored
