St Helens have reportedly put all contract talks with International Fullback Jonny Lomax on Hold.
St Helens are starting to become concerned with the durability of Lomaxs’ injury riddles knees and have put future contract talks on hold until he can get back onto the park.
Lomax, 26, has made just two appearances for St Helens in the 2017 after leaving the week two match up against the Leigh Centurions, after a collision that left Lomax dazed and was forced to leave the field.
It was later diagnosed that he had sustained some knee damage in the clash and has since been sidelined.
Lomax missed the second half of the 2014 season with knee damage that required major surgery and he suffered a similar injury against Wakefield in the start of the 2015 season.
Lomax missed the first 11 weeks of the 2016 Super League season after undergoing a second knee reconstruction but played a major role in Saints’ surge in the second half of the year to press his claims for an international call-up in the absence of Sam Tomkins and Zak Hardaker.
Lomax has made 141 appearances for the Saints since his debut back in the 2009 season against Wakefield Trinity. He has represented England on four occasions, the most recent being in the Four Nations.
Lomaxs’ return is currently indefinite, with St Helens not willing to rush their star fullback until he is 100%.
The question is now will we ever see him again in a St Helen jumper?
