Saints kick off their Super League season against London Broncos tonight as they look to reclaim their title as champions.

Here are five key players to watch out for throughout the 2024 Super League season.

George Delaney

Despite spending part of the 2023 season on loan at Swinton Lions, Delaney still made 17 appearances for the Saints last year.

Paul Wellens stated he only gives opportunities to those who deserve them, among them being Delaney, who has established himself as one of the starting players on the front line.

Despite still only being 19, his consistency on the field has shown what type of player he is. His ability to fight through tackles to get to the try line is something to look out for on the front line.

Jack Welsby

Jack Welsby became England’s youngest ever captain in the off season, with England coming out victorious in all three games.

The fan favourite had a brilliant 2023, being named Saints’ player of the year for the second time in three seasons.

He scored 12 tries and got 28 assists over the season. He also won try of the season in the World Club Challenge final in a 13-12 victory over Penrith Panthers.

He also signed a long-term deal with St Helens, putting rumours of a potential move to the NRL in Australia to bed.

Daryl Clarke

New signing Clarke from Warrington Wolves comes in to replace the retiring captain James Roby, becoming only the third player to receive the prestigious number nine shirt in 30 years.

The Saints have put a lot of faith in him, shown by the choice of shirt number and 2024 will be a big year for the hooker. He is well known for his quick runs from dummy half and he scored four tries in 27 games last season.

Noah Stephens

The 19-year-old Scouser is a new addition to the senior team, one of five academy graduates to make the leap in the last few months. Stephens is coming off the back of an academy league final victory and know to be held in high regard by academy manager Derek Traynor.

Having first joined Saints at 15, a front row of Stephens and Delaney is something to look out, either this season or next.

Matt Whitley

Another new addition to the Saints, he comes in with plenty of experience playing on the back row, having made 167 Super League appearances.

It will be a proud moment for Whitley when he makes his debut, having grown up a fan of St Helens. He has experiences heartbreak, having lost two super League finals, but potentially winning one with his boyhood club will be more than enough motivation for him.
