    Hi all, first post here, another of those who went looking for a new home after the other place closed down.

    James Graham would be a great signing if we could get him!

    JAMES GRAHAM will leave St Helens at the end of next season.

    The England prop's friendship with Sam Burgess and glowing reports of life Down Under have made him decide his future lies there.

    Liverpool-born Graham, 25, a firm favourite with Saints fans, will now have a queue of NRL clubs chasing him. Russell Crowe's South Sydney side - who already have Burgess in their ranks - will obviously lead the pack but Graham, England's top front-rower, can name his price.

    Shrewd Saints have already planned ahead by lining up Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, 24, to replace him on a three-year contract. They have also signed prop Josh Perry from Manly-Warringah.

    Royce Simmons - who will take charge of Saints next year - will also be able to call on Kieron Purtill, current No 2 to outgoing coach Mick Potter, and long-serving international hooker Keiron Cunningham, who is joining the coaching staff in 2011.

    Simmons, currently assistant at Wests Tigers and with the Australian national team, was also delighted to hear at his interview that the club had virtually nailed the signing of Castleford's England centre Michael Shenton on a five-year deal.

    Hooker ANDREW HENDERSON, in dispute with Barrow for three months, is expected to leave the club this weekend.
