The Saints are well and truly marching, and tonight they aim to maintain their excellent start to the season as they welcome Hull FC to the Totally Wicked Stadium.

A couple of milestone appearances in the FC side tonight, Marc Sneyd plays his 100th game days after scoring a winning drop goal from waaaay out, while Danny Houghton becomes the club's third player in the Super League era to make 300.

So this is 1st hosting 5th. Saints can extend their lead over Wigan and Warrington to six points with a win, while Hull could go level with the best of the rest should they triumph

About to get underway then, Lomax back in at full-back as Barba is ill.

Here come the teams Hull's black and white might clash with Saints' colours. So they've changed...to pink, which seems a bit pointless

Rob Hicks our ref, Sneyd kicks us off Actually, the colours are fine. 0-0 (1)

Hull the first to blink after some strong early defence. Kick well chased and Talanoa I think tackled in-goal for the drop out. Amor then loses it in the tackle. 0-0 (4)

Saints markers then aren't square, way to release any pressure Hull were still under...Morgan comes up with a good tackle though, so they're back with the ball in the Hull half. 0-0 (6)

Makinson goes on a run and nearly gets to halfway, before colliding with Kelly. Before that, 10m back, there was a a tackle if you can describe it as that, at head height. Saints can go close here... 0-0 (8)
