St Helens confirm Tommy Lee signing from Salford

St Helens have signed Tommy Lee on a two-year contract – as exclusively revealed in League Express earlier this year.

The former Hull FC, Wakefield and Salford hooker has signed until the end of 2018, having most recently captained the Devils in 2016.

Saints coach Keiron Cunningham said: “Tommy is a versatile player who can play at 9, in the halves and at loose forward, taking pressure off James Roby.

“He is experienced too and his leadership and composure will be vital in our young squad as we look to challenge for honours this season.”

Lee has made 210 appearances for his clubs, scoring 22 tries, and is equally adept in the halves and at nine.

He progressed from his amateur club West Hull to make his debut for Hull FC in 2005.
