St Helens head coach Kristian Woolf is ready to sign a new deal with the club, according to the West Australian.
The Tongan national boss is set to sign a two-year contract, with an option for a third in the club’s favour which will be music to many Saints’ fans ears after Woolf’s recent success.
Not only has the Australian guided Saints to a Grand Final victory in 2020, Woolf helped the Lancashire club win the Challenge Cup final for the first time in 13 years this season.
And, chairman Eamonn McManus could not speak highly enough of Woolf in a club podcast.
“Kristian wants to be with us and we want him to be with us so it’s a matter of dealing with that,” chairman Eamonn McManus told the Saints podcast on Wednesday.
“We’ll be announcing something shortly.
“He’s laying some building blocks, the players really enjoy being coached by Kristian and his team.
“There is more success ahead under Kristian – I’ve got very little doubt about that.
“We’re going to have to work very hard for it but we’re pretty confident, going along these lines, that more trophies should be had by the Saints – and that’s what we’re really all about.”
