Saints are refusing to be drawn on media reports that Hull KR’s Travis Burns is on his way to Langtree Park and set to renew his half back partnership with fellow Aussie Luke Walsh next season.

Both were team-mates at NRL club, Penrith Panthers, before moving to the UK and would solve a problem area which the club hasn’t successfully overcome since Leon Pryce and Sean Long ruled the roost.

But head coach Nathan Brown declined to comment on whether the 30-year old Burns was a prime target other than admitting that half back was a position which needed strengthening.

He said: “Like any other club, we are casting our net far and wide and on the look out for new blood.”
