St Helens skipper James Roby is set to reach a further milestone in his trophy-filled career on Friday night.


The hooker will be chomping at the bit to lead his players out against the auld enemy, Wigan Warriors, at the Totally Wicked Stadium in what will be his 400th Super League appearance, while at the same time aiming to bring the Cherry and Whites five-match winning run to an end.

Team-mate Alex Walmsley also needs one appearance to reach 200 for his career - 172 for St Helens (2013-2019), 22 for Batley Bulldogs (2012-2013) and five for England (2017).
