Former Sky Sports pundit Stevo reveals current Super League star is ‘the best’ he has ever seen

Former Sky Sports pundit Mike ‘Stevo’ Stephenson has had his say on who he believes is the greatest number nine he has ever seen play.

And, it will perhaps come as little surprise that that hooker is James Roby – who is aiming for a third Grand Final success in a row when St Helens take on Catalans Dragons on Saturday evening at Old Trafford.

‘I would rate him as the best hooker I have ever seen and that is a big call because there have been some great players in the past for England and Great Britain,” Stephenson said about Roby.

“This man just keeps giving, giving and giving, but the one thing I am proud about is he’s realised he doesn’t want to get involved with the World Cup next year.

“He’s got one more season at St Helens and I think that’s a very smart move from him – I’m sure he would want to go out with four grand finals on the trot.

“He’s just the best I have ever seen.”
