Regan Grace has say on whether he could return to rugby league ahead of St Helens departure

St Helens are now back-to-back-to-back-to-back Champions of Super League completing an unprecedented achievement at the expense of Leeds Rhinos last weekend with a 24-12 Grand Final win over their old rivals.

It demonstrates not just the strength of the current squad, but the strength of the squad over the last half a decade and all those players who didn’t feature on Saturday.

The likes of Alex Walmsley and Lewis Dodd are two of the main examples as is star winger Regan Grace whose Saints career ended prematurely with injury against Salford earlier this season.

This is because he’s set to take on a new adventure in rugby union.

On missing out on the perfect farewell though, Grace had this to say on Sky Sports: “It’s unbelievable. Gutted to miss out today but I’ve been a part of a journey and helping the boys as much as I can. I’m super proud of them for the work they’ve put in over these last five years I’d say and it shows today, they’re another level.

“I just wanted them to go out and create history.”

So, onto pastures new for Grace in a different sport where he begins a one-year deal with an option for a second.

However, he hasn’t ruled out a return to Super League in the future.

When asked, he simply said: “I’m going to go and enjoy myself in Union but you never know what’s going to happen in the future but I know what I’m doing now.

So, it seems we could see Grace in Super League again one day and who knows he may play a part in more Grand Final wins at St Helens in the near future.
