James Roby on whether victory over Leeds Rhinos would cement St Helens as the greatest team in Super League history

St Helens could make history tomorrow.

In their record 14th Grand Final appearance, they could win a record ninth Grand Final and a record 10th Super League title.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg with the Saints chasing an unprecedented fourth consecutive title topping the record Leeds set in 2009.

On this, St Helens skipper and Super League legend James Roby said: “Yeah definitely, we’re aware that three has done before but we’re 80 minutes away from doing four which has never been done. We’re very focused on the job at hand and focused on getting our job in order but at the same time at the back of our minds we do know what potentially if we did go on and win four how special that would be.”

Many have suggested that such an achievement would make this St Helens side the greatest in Super League history especially due to the fact they have also won three League Leaders’ Shields in three years as well as winning the Challenge Cup in 2021.

On this, Roby said it is hard to compare sides from different eras, however that such an achievement would have to leave the Saints within the conversation.

“It’s hard to compare teams from different eras. If we were to go on and win it, it is a fact that four has never been done before so I think you’d have to consider us.”

However, a Leeds side also chasing history stands in their way. A win for Rohan Smith’s men would also deliver a record ninth Grand Final win and would also see Leeds win a third Grand Final from fifth in the table.

Making it more remarkable is the fact that Leeds were second bottom in April with just one win at the start of the campaign.

So, either way, a fantastic story is set to conclude tomorrow night.
