MIKE Rush is looking forward to facing Warrington this Saturday and wants a performance the town would be proud of – in front of a massive crowd.Speaking after Wigan chose Leeds at Clubcall to send the Wolves on Langtree Park he is expecting another great match.“It’s no surprise the Warriors chose who they did, they had to take the lowest ranked team,” he said. “With all due respect to Hull with about 20 minutes of their match left we knew we would be lining up to play Warrington.“We worked really hard to get home advantage and now we need it to work for us. We need to produce a performance probably better than the last time we met. There is pressure on both teams and we will need to be at our best to win.”He continued: “Kids make dreams and people are talking about walking out at Old Trafford but I am a miserable realist! We have to win this week to think about Old Trafford. My only thoughts are going to Langtree Park on Saturday in front of a large crowd and making the town proud. Our fans need to turn out in their numbers as I know tickets are selling out fast.”Tickets are on sale for Saturday’s game and Warrington are expected to snap up their initial allocation quickly.With demand for tickets high from both clubs the advice is to buy yours soon.You can buy at the Ticket Office at Langtree Park, by calling 01744 455 052, or logging on here.
SAINTS crushed Salford Red Devils in a fine ten try performance to not only top Super League but perfectly set themselves up for a Souths showdown next Sunday.Keiron Cunningham’s men were superior in every department scything through their host’s defence at will and turning aside all that was thrown at them.The stats will show Mark Percival, Jordan Turner and Joe Greenwood each grabbed braces – but this was a real squad performance worthy of the Champions.Saints made a couple late changes to their 17 – Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook and Luke Thompson coming into the line up and Mark Flanagan starting at 13 in place of Josh Jones.And all three made telling contributions.Kevin Locke returned for Salford and he almost had an immediate impact dancing through the defence on the Devils’ first attack.Saints repelled borders but it was the home side that looked more likely in the early stages.Yet, once Joe Greenwood put in a good run to clear the lines the visitor’s struck.On the next set, Adam Swift scampered 50 metres, the ball came right and Mark Percival stepped inside Mason Caton-Brown for the opener.Saints should have extended the lead but were pulled back for a forward pass that never was from Greenwood.Salford replied with back to back sets but Vea broke through the centre after a wonderful drop off ball and within seconds Jordan Turner had increased the advantage.Saints had the momentum and following two fine runs from Alex Walmsley Roby caught Greenwood on a fine line from dummy half for 12-0.Mark Percival made it 14-0 but in the 28th minute Salford cut the lead.Saints attacked on the right, Makinson kicked the ball on and a kind bounce landed in the hands of Ben Jones-Bishop who returned it with interest. Michael Dobson making it 14-6 with the boot.Saints weathered the storm and hit back with five minutes left in the first half.Jon Wilkin’s high kick forced a knock on deep in Salford territory and then his pass caught Luke Thompson at full pelt.Percival making it 20-6 at half time – and he had a hand in Saints’ next try just two minutes after the restart.Jones-Bishop knocked on and from the scrum Lomax hit Percival and he put Makinson over in the corner.In the 50th minute Theo Fages was held up over the line after two penalties put Salford right in prime territory.And five minutes later a massive high ball from Wilkin once more was spilled by the Devils’ defence – at least twice – and Percival mopped up.Wilko popped another up for LMS before Hock was sinbinned for what looked like a knee on Masoe in the tackle.Saints took full advantage too Roby getting it away to Greenwood for his second of the night.Jordan Turner stretched out for his second on 65 minutes and then Andre Savelio crossed thanks to a wonderful kick from Wilkin and Percival collect.A perfect end to a perfect evening.Match Summary:Reds: Tries: Jones-BishopGoals: Dobson (1 from 1)Saints:Tries: Percival (2), Turner (2), Greenwood (2), Thompson, Makinson, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Savelio, Goals: Burns (0 from 1), Percival (6 from 9)Penalties: Reds: 7Saints: 6HT: 20-6FT: 52-6REF: Ben ThalerATT: 4975Teams:Reds:1.

WHEN the new season starts, Saints will be one of just four Super League clubs running a reserve team.The Club sees it as vital for the retention of players in the sport.Saints alongside Wigan, Hull FC and Warrington will join Keighley, Halifax, Sheffield, Dewsbury and Featherstone in playing fixtures.And it’s a move Keiron Cunningham is more than happy with.“I’m really pleased the reserves are back for the new season,” he said. “It takes away that black hole and stops us losing talent when players reach 19.“We’re in a situation where you can go out, recruit and nurture a player and then by the age of 19 if they aren’t a superstar you have to let them go. That is a ridiculous situation.“We can now look at kids until they are 21 or 22. Not everyone is a superstar by 19… you only have to look at the likes of Mike Bennett and even James Roby. We could have lost them under the current system.“You spend a lot of time and finance getting a player through the system; it’s hard work and to then say thank you very much, you’re gone, at 19, is ridiculous.”He continued: “The move to bring back reserves was championed by Mike Rush. He got everything going and teams jumped on board. The game will be stronger for sure.”Keiron says that Saints’ Reserves are likely to be top age players from the 19s Academy, first teamers who are not getting regular football and those returning from injury.There could also be lower age players in the Academy who could make the step up.“It’s common sense,” he added. “We will reap the rewards and I’m sure it won’t take 12 months before the league does it as a whole.“They will see it was successful and then take up the idea as their own.”Ian Talbot will be the head coach of the reserves, assisted by Paul Wellens and Tommy Martyn.Fixtures:Sunday Jan 31: Swinton (A) – 3pm (Friendly)Saturday Feb 13: Wigan (H) – 12pmSaturday March 5: Hull FC (H) – 1pmThursday March 10: Keighley (A) – 7.45pmThursday March 31: Halifax (A) – 7.30pmSaturday April 16: Warrington (A) – 12pmSaturday May 7: Warrington (H) – 12pmSunday May 22: Wigan (A) – TBCSaturday May 28: Hull FC (A) – 5.20pmSaturday June 11: Sheffield (H) – 1pmSaturday June 25: Wigan (H) – 12pmSaturday July 9: Dewsbury (H) – 1pmSaturday July 30: Warrington (H) – 12pmSaturday August 13: Hull FC (H) – 1pmSunday September 11: Featherstone (A) – 7.30pmPlease note fixtures are subject to change.
