Ex-St Helens coach helps pull off triple signing

Daniel Anderson will also be beloved by St Helens fans.

He led the Saints to the treble in 2006, a feat that even their great current team has yet to accomplish and one only done three times in Super League.

Anderson would back that up with three trophies in 2007 as St Helens finished top, won the World Club Challenge against Brisbane Broncos and the Challenge Cup against Catalans Dragons in the first final at the new Wembley.

A second consecutive treble was denied by Leeds at Old Trafford however and the same again happened in 2008 after the Saints had beaten Hull FC in the Challenge Cup Final.

Since then, Anderson has had an up and down career with Anderson even de-registered in 2016 for Parramatta Eels’ salary cap scandal.

However, he operates at Sydney Roosters in a recruitment role alongside former Catalans boss Trent Robinson.

Anderson also made good signings when in charge at the Saints as he sustained a great team beyond that treble triumph, and he has again showed his value in this department in helping the Roosters secure a superb triple signing today.

The first is the re-signing of Angus Crichton on a two-year deal made able by the way Anderson and co have juggled the salary cap to create space for the Australian international.

Jaxson Paulo and Jake Turpin have also been signed on to the Roosters by Anderson from Souths and Brisbane respectively.

On these signings, Anderson told Fox League: “Jaxson is a skilful outside back whose best football is still ahead of him, and Jake is a specialist hooker who will provide some terrific depth to our squad.

“We look forward to welcoming Jaxson and Jake when they officially join the Club at the start of pre-season next month.”
