Cunningham to make 450th Saints appearance

Saints hooker Keiron Cunningham will make his 450th appearance for the club against Wigan in Edinburgh this weekend.

Cunningham, 32, has been at Knowsley Road since 1993 and has won every honour in the domestic game during his stint at the club.

He also made 14 appearances for Great Britain before retiring from international rugby league in 2006.

And he believes he can go on in the top flight for at least another year.

“I feel great at the moment and I feel fit. My form is good, I want to carry on doing what I am doing and improve where I can.
“If you asked me now about next year, then I would want to play. But I want to wait until later in the year really to see how I feel. It is a long season after all!”

Cunningham is expecting a tough game against fierce rivals Wigan in the pick of the matchups at the Magic Weekend at Murrayfield.

He said: “We have a good record against Wigan but I don’t think it will stand for much at the weekend. We have to perform. It is about us. Last week we brought Bradford too much into the equation, but if we do things right, then we should be fine. We aren’t far short as a team.”
“It was a very disappointing result like week and we want to put that right. It was hard to put our finger on why. Things weren’t going our way and you could feel that in the dressing room.
“That said, we could have sneaked it. All credit to Bradford, they put on a great performance but I believe we still could have won.”
