St Helens will host Super League newcomers Leigh Centurions on Saturday 13th March 2021 (kick off 6pm) at the Totally Wicked Stadium in Tommy Makinson’s Testimonial fixture.
Makinson was awarded a Testimonial year in 2021 after making over 240 appearances for the Saints since making his debut in 2011.
Since then, the Saints academy graduate has won three Super League titles, and three League Leaders Shields. He was also awarded the Golden Boot in 2018, for being the International Player of the Year.
The Super League champions will take on Leigh in the first confirmed pre-season fixture for both sides ahead of the new 2021 Super League campaign.
The only way fans can watch the game is via the RFL’s Our League platform where the game will be live streamed at a cost of £5 – with all money going to Makinson’s Testimonial fund.
Reacting to the news, Makinson said: “I am delighted to be facing Leigh in my Testimonial fixture. Of course it is a shame we can’t welcome fans in to watch the game in person but hopefully as many sign up to Our League and watch the game for just £5.
“It could be the only opportunity for supporters to see the Saints and our new signings in action before the new season and we are all looking forward to getting out there again as we prepare to defend our Super League title.”
