Flanagan returns home for spell at Saints
Wednesday 20 July 2011
Mark Flanagan is coming home to resume his Super League career with St Helens. The former Wigan back-row has spent the last two seasons with Wests Tigers in Sydney, but he has now agreed a contract with Saints for 2012 and 2013.
"I coached Mark previously at Wests Tigers," said Saints' coach, Royce Simmons. "He is a very good young British player who will have benefited from his time in the NRL."
Adrian Morley must miss Saturday's Challenge Cup quarter-final against Wigan because of the head injury that has kept him out of Warrington's last three games.
"Adrian is not quite ready," said his coach, Tony Smith. "We are being very cautious with him."
The Wigan prop, Stuart Fielden, has declared himself fit and desperate to play in the tie. The Test front-rower has managed just one game this season, after knee surgery, and was included in last weekend's squad but coach Michael Maguire is undecided about bringing him back.
Harlequins have re-signed their former Wigan back Chris Melling for two more seasons. Barrow face a six-point deduction for breaching last season's salary cap.
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
