Matty Smith: St Helens re-sign Wigan Warriors half-back
St Helens have re-signed scrum-half Matty Smith from Super League champions Wigan Warriors on a three-year deal.
Smith, who was contracted to Wigan until 2018, came through Saints' academy but left for Salford in 2011 in search of regular first-team games.
The 29-year-old joined Wigan a year later and won two Grand Finals and a Challenge Cup with the Warriors.
"I am thrilled and honoured to be back at my hometown team," Smith told Saints' website.
"It should be a seamless transition as I have come through the system at Saints and know the key staff and players as well as the club's culture."
New Zealand half-back Thomas Leuluai will rejoin Wigan for next season while the Warriors have also signed France full-back Morgan Escare.
