Excited to see Saints lads in Colorado clash.

Byline: super saint writes for the echo Wilkin

HOPEFULLY we'll get a good crowd in Denver for the England-New Zealand Test match on Saturday.

I'm excited about seeing how the St Helens boys go against the Kiwis and hope Mark Percival gets the chance to show what he can do at centre.

Mark has been in fantastic form for Saints in Super League and can provide that extra strike power you need out wide if you want to be a top team. If form was the ultimate arbiter, I'm sure Tommy Makinson would be in the side too. He's been flying for us this year.

It's a pity New Zealand won't have some of their big names out there.

The likes of Shaun Johnson and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck will be a big miss for the Kiwis.

We again seem to have the club versus country situation and as it stands it's the clubs who pay the money. Hopefully, the NRL clubs will be more openminded when it comes to the Test series in England at the end of the year.
