Josh Simm pens his new deal

The 20-year-old academy product, who is the grandson of former Saints full-back Geoff Pimblett, made his Super League debut against London Broncos in 2019 and deputised six times in 2020 for injured England centre Mark Percival.

Saints head coach Kristian Woolf said: “Josh has really matured as a player over the last 12 months and is showing that maturity again in terms of how he is advancing over the pre-season.

“He is getting closer and closer to cementing a spot in our team every week and that is certainly the progression we see for him.”

On signing his new deal, Simm said: "I am really happy and I want to thank everyone at the club. I had a good taste of Super League last year and I now want to progress on the back of that experience.

"I am looking forward to the rest of this season and hopefully I can play my part in helping this club make it three Super League titles in a row and make a few more appearances along the way too."
