Saints have become the first Super League team to support Rugby League Cares.

Skipper Jon Wilkin said: “It's great that all the boys have signed up to an organisation which does so much for charity by assisting players, particularly at the point of retirement and the transition from sport to a future career.

“We are behind them with this and their other work and would encourage others to take a look at the charity and support them however they can.”

A spokesperson for RL Cares said: “We play an important role as part of the player welfare programme supported by the RFL and clubs.

“Providing support to players with education helps them plan for the future and leave the sport well equipped to take on their next challenge.

“One or two of the lads have benefitted from the charity and it good to see them all join up and give something back.”

Neil Kilshaw, Saints' player performance manager, added: “Rugby League Cares plays an important role as part of the player welfare programme supported by the RFL and clubs.
