Tommy Makinson scored a try to help St Helens to victory on his 250th Super League appearance

Tommy Makinson was able to celebrate a victory on his 250th Betfred Super League appearance as an out-of-sort St Helens held out for a 12-10 victory over Warrington Wolves.

Alex Walmsley’s try in bizarre circumstances and Makinson’s 14th of the season helped St Helens, despite not being at their best in attack, into a 12-4 lead at the break after Gareth Widdop’s opener for the hosts.

George Williams’ converted try gave the Wolves hope of snatching a memorable win, but they could not unlock the reigning champions’ defence again – with the impressive Connor Wrench left to wonder what might have been as he was somehow caught while breaking away in the closing stages.
