Former teammate gives honest opinion on St Helens signing

Ryan Brierley has had his honest say on James Bell joining St Helens.

This afternoon, Saints revealed that Kiwi James Bell had joined the club on a two-year deal from relegated side Leigh Centurions.

And, former teammate Brierley believes it is a great coup for the Red Vee.

“Got yourself a diamond, our best player and the nicest guy you could meet. @James_BeII go get yourself a trophy lad”

Bell, 27, was one of Leigh’s top performers during their difficult campaign playing 18 times, scoring one try with five assists and Kristian Woolf has added the Scottish international to his pack for 2022.

Prior to joining Super League, Bell made two NRL appearances for New Zealand Warriors back in 2017, before spending two years in France for Toulouse Olympique where he made 27 appearances scoring 10 tries.

On signing for Saints, Bell said:“I couldn’t believe it when my manager put the contract in my emails. This has been the opportunity I have been waiting my whole career for. Joining the Super League this year, clearly St Helens are the team to beat and I hold them in high regard.”
