SAINTS have agreed a short term loan deal for promising young half-back Gareth O’Brien as further back-up for their injury-inflicted squad.

The 21-year-old’s chances at his current side, Warrington Wolves, have been limited by the continued good form of evergreen stand-off Lee Briers.

He has spent part of this season on loan at Castleford this season as well as being dual registered with Swinton Lions. He will begin training with the Saints immediately and is expected to stay at Langtree Park for a month.
