St Helens’ flying winger Tommy Makinson has signed a new contract with the club, rejecting interest from NRL clubs in the process.
Makinson was rumoured to be on the Knights’ radar after being spotted with coach Nathan Brown during a post-season holiday Down Under.
However, on the eve of the new Super League season he’s handed the Saints and the Super League a big boost by extending his contract until the end of the 2022 season.
Makinson was the shock winner of the Golden Boot award for the world’s best player in 2018 after scoring 4 tries in his first four England games, all against New Zealand.
He also played a big part in Saints winning the League Leaders Shield last year and will be an instrumental part of their team for the upcoming season.
