St.Helens have announced winger Regan Grace has extended his stay with the Club for a further year which will see the Welshman stay at the Club until at least the end of the 2022 season.
Grace has enjoyed a stunning rise since his debut with St Helens back in 2017, scoring 70 tries for the club in 116 appearances.
Hailing from Port Talbot, Grace played a handful of games for the Ospreys’ Under-16s side before he joined the Saints in 2016 after impressing for rugby league side South Wales Scorpions U16s and Wales at Under 18s. 2017 brought a much-anticipated first team debut as he scored in a defeat to Wigan.
Since then, he has helped the club to two Super League titles and two League Leaders Shields.
On signing his new deal, Grace said: “I am buzzing to sign on for another year on top of my current deal. I am excited to see what we can achieve both this season and next.
“The length of the deal is right for me. I am happy. A one year extension keeps me on my toes and keeps me playing my best. I am always looking to improve and that is what I will be looking to do over the next year and a half.
“Hopefully we can win the Super League again this year and win it again the following year. I am here to win things and that is my main goal. I want to help this team and Club win trophies.”The Club will continue to monitor both players on a week-by-week basis to ensure they receive regular game time.”
Head Coach Kristian Woolf added: “It is great news. We want to make sure players that come through our junior ranks stay here and in particular the ones that are such good performers like Regan is. We want the likes of Regan to have long careers with us.
“He is a terrific talent. We all see what he does with the ball in hand and there are not too many players that are as exciting as him and can score the tries that he can.
“Those are the things everyone notices, but what has impressed me this year in particular is the other areas of his game, around his defence, his catch and his presence on the field. I am really happy with how he is progressing. He is a terrific bloke and it is great to have him on board for longer.”
