Kristian Woolf has his say on key departing St Helens players

St Helens have said goodbye to seven departing players following the culmination of the 2021 season and now head coach Kristian Woolf has had his say in an extensive interview on Saints TV.

Woolf, who has been in charge of the Lancashire club for the past two seasons, has won two Grand Finals and one Challenge Cup already whilst holding the reins.

But, the Tonga national boss was also keen to stress the impact of those leaving.

“They are all going to be missed in their own way, some guys have been really big contributors in the field,” Woolf said.

“You talk about your Lachlan Coote, Kev Naiqama, Theo Fages and James Bentley and those guys have been terrific contributors on the field and I can’t thank them enough for what they’ve given to this team and to this club. t

“They’ve been outstanding to work with.”

The Saints boss also kind words for two outgoing players that perhaps haven’t played as much as they would have liked in 2021.

“Joel Thompson has been here for 12 months and he hasn’t finished the way he would like to, but he’s still been a big part of our team both and on and off the field.

“Josh Eaves, while he hasn’t played a lot of games, he’s St Helens born and bred and whatever opportunity he got on the field he was so proud to take it.”
