The black-tie dinner will start with a champagne-style reception, followed by a three-course meal.

There will also be highlights from the 2011 Super League season, and interviews with players and fans, about the buzz around the town as Saints head into a new and exciting campaign.

There will be entertainment provided by a live band and a comedian.

Tickets are £80, but are strictly limited.

Anyone wanting to attend the event is asked to ring 01744 455053, or log on to www.saintsrlfc.com.
