St Helens legend Leon Pryce names ‘one of the best centres to ever play Super League’

As a player, Pryce won it all; from the Challenge Cup to the Grand Final, the former Bradford, St Helens, Hull FC and Catalans Dragons star scooped up both individual and team accolades galore.

The 40-year-old won a grand total of six Challenge Cups, six League Leaders’ Shields, three World Club Challenges and four Super League titles in a 19-year spell in the game.

So, if there is anyone qualified to talk about good players, then it is Pryce.

And, on the Flat Cap Chat podcast, the veteran named one of the best centres Super League has ever seen.

“Shontayne Hape – legendary player,” Pryce said.

“He’s a great guy and one of the best centres that has ever played Super League without a doubt.

“He was unbelievable.”

Pryce’s former club St Helens swept everyone aside in the 2021 season.

From Challenge Cup winners, beating Castleford Tigers in the final at Wembley, to the Super League Grand Final in overcoming the Catalans Dragons in nailbiting fashion, Saints just could not be stopped.

They are the bookmakers’ favourites to repeat their success in 2022 and they have been backed for glory by former halfback and stalwart Leon Pryce.

“St Helens have still got to be the team to beat,” Pryce told Serious About Rugby League.

“They were the best side in the competition last year and they have recruited well.

“I still think that Saints will be the team for everyone to catch up to.”
