EX Saints star Sean Long is set to appear in court again on January 15 after denying an assault.

The 36-year-old, of Smithy Glen Drive, Billinge, formally denied assaulting 40-year-old Pamela Twist in Rainford before St Helens Magistrates’ Court before Christmas.

The former Great Britain international, now a coach with Salford City Reds, famously won three Lance Todd trophies during his time at Saints for his man of the match displays in the Challenge Cup Finals of 2001, 2004 and 2006.

He remains on conditional bail, pending a case management hearing on January 15.
