Saint Helens will face the London Broncos in their first Super League game of 2024.

The 2024 Super League kicks off in less than a month's time, with St Helens starting the season with a highly-anticipated game against the London Broncos.

But, the Saints still have one pre-season game left ahead of Super League, facing Salford Red Devils on February 4 at the Totally Wicked Stadium. Kicking off at 2.00pm, this will no doubt be a chance for the team to get their fitness back up ahead of what is hoped to be a bounce-back after a disappointing end to the 2023 season.

Paul Wellens gave a number of academy graduates the chance to make their first team debut in Saints' first pre-season friendly against Swinton Lions on Saturday (January 20), which ended with a disappointing 18-28 loss. The academy achieved great things in 2023 and recent graduates, Leon Cowen, Will Roberts, Dayon Sambou, Noah Stephens and Jonny Vaughan, all feature in the first team for 2024.

Despite a disappointing end to the 2023 season, with St Helens losing to Catalan in the semi final play-offs, there is plenty to look forward to in 2024, with Saints starting the season with a home game against the Broncos.
