Andre Savelio commits to Saints

St Helens forward, Andre Savelio has been rewarded for an impressive breakthrough season, by being handed a new contract.

Savelio, who has come through the Saints academy after joining the club aged 14, will stay with the current Super League champions until at least 2017.

Since making his Super League debut in February against Catalans, the 20-year-old has scored 2 tries in 18 appearances for the Saints, one of which saw him fronting up against the mighty, 2014 South Sydney Rabbitohs, NRL Champions, in February’s World Club Challenge.
