Popular prop Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook has penned a new deal which will keep him at St Helens until 2016.

The Londoner, dubbed LMS by Saints fans, signed for the club in 2011, and has gone on to make more than 90 appearance, scoring 18 tries.

“Louie is a very good player who is popular amongst his teammates,” said head coach Nathan Brown. “He’s versatile too, as he proved last season, and can play anywhere in the pack.

“He also has a lot of scope for improvement and his career is on the rise.”

LMS, who has represented England twice, added: “I’ve been up here for a few years now and I’m settled. Saints are a great club who want to win trophies and I want to achieve things in the game.

I’m hoping I can realise that here. Signing an extension was a no brainer for me really.

“I came north to win things and I’m sure we can do that. I know I am not the finished article and I have to continue learning.

“I put pressure on myself to strive to be the best I can and I’m looking forward to this season and the future.”
