Jonny Lomax is honing-in on a century of Super League tries - and will be hoping to reach that magical milestone in the final fixture of the regular season at Hull FC tonight (Friday).


One club man Lomax - already with more than 200 appearances under his belt for Saints - now stands on 99 and having already plundered 18 tries so far this season few people will bet against him adding to his tally at the KCOM.

Saints' record, too, against their Humberside rivals is quite impressive - having won eight of their last 10 encounters.
