There's exciting news for three injured Saints, with Dan Hannebery, Jarryn Geary and Jake Carlisle now all out on the track.
Hannebery will join parts of main training this week, while Geary and Carlisle have started running again.
Saints Physiotherapist Andrew Wallis shared the latest on Hannebery's progress.
"The plan is (for Dan) to play in 3-4 weeks," said Wallis.
"Dan’s been running really consistently, which is what we’ve been aiming for, so it’ll be great to hopefully see him playing soon."
