Lomax played his last game for saints?


Not sure about his last game for Saints, but I did hear that we have Stefan Ratchford lined up as a potential replacement for him next year. Wouldn't say it was 100% reliable where it came from but I think overall would be a good move for us if true.

That said, the only aspect of Lomax's game at full back better than Tommy is his handling skills, however on support play, kick returns and in particular defence Tommy is far better. With Regan Grace looking settled on the wing I would be happy with those as our back 3 next season.

Would be sad for Jonny to see him go as he is a great talent, but he has only managed 4 games so far this season and missed the majority of 2014, 2015 and pretty much half of 2016 through injury. There has to come a point when sentiment is put aside and you cut your losses with players earning big money but cant get out on the field.

He's off contract and can talk to other clubs next week (I think it's next week anyway) and I've heard no sign of new deal

If thats the case can assume he will be on his way - would be a big risk to keep him as he will be one of our bigger earners and struggles for fitness so cant really blame the club for letting him go. If we do keep tommy at 1 and allow Grace a chance as first choice winger then would give us a fair bit of cap space to invest in other areas of the squad which would be a good thing.

I don't think we can afford to sign him up again. His speed is completely gone. His fitness is deeply suspect. He represents a very large slice of our salary cap sitting in the stands of the majority of games.

The bloke has been incredibly unlucky with injuries, and he did at one point promise to be a future international star. But I think it's over.

If he does go I want us to bring in another full back. Tommy is doing a good job at full back now, but it'll hurt us not having a good ball handler at full back going forward.

He was at Saints in the u16s but wasn't offered a deal and widnes came in for him. Was excellent last year and looked like could be top player but has struggled in poor widnes team.
