Despite having five Saints’ players in their line-up, partnership club Rochdale Hornets crashed to a 42-12 home defeat against Dewbury Rams in the Kingstone Press Championship on Sunday.

Matty Dawson, who moved to St Helens from Huddersfield Giants in the close season, bagged one of his side’s two tries - the other coming from Langtree Park team-mate Joe Greenwood.

But club colleagues Ade Gardner and Jordan Hand, who are currently plying their trade at Whitehaven, were left kicking their heels in frustration after the weather led to the postponement of their home game against North Wales Crusaders.

Mark Flanagan, who suffered a serious knee injury, enjoyed a run out with Rochdale as he prepares for his first game back after almost a year out.
