Kristian Woolf gives open and honest update on St Helens future

He was a Grand Final winner in his first season at St Helens and Kristian Woolf has no intention of leaving just yet.

Woolf waxed lyrical about the Lancashire club and those he works with day in, day out, but the Tonga boss isn’t concerned about being out of contract at the end of 2021.

“There’s been no talks and no need for them at this stage, everything is all good,” Woolf said.

“I’ve said before, I’ve really enjoyed my time here so far and I love the club and the playing group that we’ve got here.

“We’re (Kristian and his family) really comfortable with living in St Helens, so there are no dramas here at all.”

Looking ahead to St Helens’ fixture against Catalans this weekend and Woolf labelled the French side as their “biggest challenge” yet.

“They’ve been playing really well and it’s our biggest challenge this year; when you’re playing a team full of quality and confidence at the same time it’s a really difficult one, but we’re really looking forward to it.

“It’s a good challenge for us; forget about the trip because other teams have made the same trip and gone over there and won and Catalans have to make that trip each week.”

Woolf was keen to stress that he didn’t want his players at the top of their games just yet with most of the season still to be played.

“We don’t want to be at our absolute best right now because there’s plenty of time to go.

“We’re always trying to improve both our attack and defence so we’ve worked on both things to be better than where we were last year.

“The most important thing is how hard our players want to work.”
