St Helens

The Saints booked their third Betfred Super League final visit in as many years after a 36-8 victory over Leeds Rhinos in the semi-final at the Totally Wicked Stadium.

Jack Welsby, Will be one player that could cause Catalan problems after scoring 14 tries in this campaign, the 20-year-old who is known as the ‘King’ due to his last minute winner against Wigan Warriors in last seasons final will certainly be a player to watch.


Although, St Helens will go into the game as favourites due to previous success in this competition, The Dragons will believe they can create even more history, especially after beating The Saints just over a month ago.
