Prop Alex Walmsley will be available for Saints’ trip to Catalans Dragons on Saturday after he submitted an early guilty plea to the Rugby Football League Disciplinary today (Tuesday).

He had been charged with Grade A ‘strikes with knee’ following an incident during Friday’s game against Hull FC at the KCOM Stadium, but after submitting his plea he is now available to face the French club.

Walmsley has appeared in all four of Saints’ games so far this season - starting twice and coming off the bench in the other two.
