St Helens star calls teammate a “weirdo” as “he does things that people can’t describe or know how he does it”

It is often suggested that this current St Helens team aren’t given the credit they deserve despite the dynasty they have built over the last five years.

However, they have plenty of star players who will no doubt go down as legends.

Tommy Makinson, Jonny Lomax, Alex Walmsley, James Roby and Morgan Knowles to name a few.

One of them is celebrating his testimonial in the shape of Mark Percival however heartbreakingly the centre has been denied his chance to play in his testimonial game against Widnes Vikings.

That said it hasn’t stopped teammate Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook from paying tribute to the centre.

“Percy is one of those off the field that he’s a laugh a minute, a funny funny human. On the field he does things he does things that people can’t describe or don’t know how he does it,” the prop said of the centre on Saints TV.

“He’s one of them weirdos who knows how to run the ball into as many as he can but still get through and score a try. I’m glad he’s on our team.”

Both Percival and Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook will be wanting to cement their legacies with a win in the World Club Challenge against Penrith Panthers on February 18th live on Channel 4 and Sky Sports.

LMS is keen to show just how good the Saints are by defeating the Panthers next month:

“It’s a fantastic opportunity, I’ve never had an opportunity to go and play in Australia for my club side. Obviously I’ve represented my country and my mother’s side in the World Cup. But to play as Saints for us who’ve won four in a row and they’ve won two it’s a great achievement for the two clubs and to see who is the best club in the world.

“Hopefully we show how good we are, how good we’ve been these last few years and we back ourselves and come away with the win.”
