Saints youngsters pen new deals
St Helens have handed long-term contract extensions to three promising members of their First Utility Super League squad.
Centre Mark Percival, 20, and forwards Luke Thompson, 19, and Greg Richards, 18, who all came through the Saints academy, have signed new deals that will keep them at Langtree Park until the end of the 2018 season.
St Helens coach Nathan Brown said: "We're delighted to have signed up Mark, Luke and Greg. They are three good players who are continuously improving the more Super League experience they get.
"Their task now is to keep their heads down, work hard and learn from the experience of playing first-grade rugby league. If they do that then they can all go far in the game."
