Ken Pisi says the strength of Saints’ wing department is driving him on to big things this season.

The Samoan star, who has started all six of his side’s games so far, produced an eye-catching display at Franklin’s Gardens on Saturday, starring as Sale Sharks were slayed 43-10.

Pisi sidetepped his way to the line for a superb opening score and also teed up sibling George for another fine try.

Saints could afford to put George North on the bench as Jamie Elliott came in for his first start of the season, while Tom Collins and Howard Packman are also waiting in the wings.

And Pisi said: “It’s awesome, the depth, but it’s a challenge as well. It brings out the best in us.

“We’ve got George North and Jamie Elliott, but also Tom Collins, Packman and Skelcey.

“It’s always a challenge and it’s bringing the best out of all of us.

“I’m just trying to improve, take each game as it comes and there’s always room for improvement.”
