St Helens have moved to quash reports that the adverse weather has caused serious damage to their Langtree Park home.
There were reports last night that the closure of a road passing the stadium, Peasley Cross Lane, was due to damage to the roof of the South Stand.
However, Saints later revealed that the road had been shut as a precaution after a sponsor’s sign blew off the outside of the stadium during the high winds that battered the local area.
A statement said: “The club wishes to correct misinformed statements as to storm damage at Langtree Park.
“The only damage was to an outside sign.
“Standard safety checks will now be conducted as a matter of course whilst the stadium remains fully operational.”
