St Helens: Gardner “determined” to fight for his place

Saints winger Ade Gardner will return from a loan spell at Hull Kingston Rovers at the end of the season and fight for his place in Nathan Brown’s squad, according to the St Helens Reporter.

The former Great Britain international, 31, fell out of favour this year thanks to the impressive form of Tommy Makinson and Adam Swift and joined the Robins in March. He has 12 months left on his contract at Langtree Park and told the newspaper he was determined to work hard for his spot.

Additionally, though, he said he would “seriously consider” another loan spell if the right opportunity arose.
