St Helens’ Regan Grace breaks silence on controversial try against Leeds Rhinos and where his future lies

St Helens star Regan Grace has become one of the most exciting wingers in the Super League competition since bursting onto the rugby league scene.

The Welsh international made his debut back in 2016 and has gone on to make almost 150 appearances in the Red Vee of Saints.

Grace has helped Saints to three successive Super League Grand Final victories after beginning his sporting career in union at Aberavon Harlequins and the Ospreys academy.

However, according to the Rugby Paper, Grace is being lined up with a move back to the 15-man code.

England coach Eddie Jones and attack coach Martin Gleeson both want to see Grace return to union once his contract runs out at the end of the season, with the duo championing him as the next Jason Robinson.

Rugby union sides in Wales had previously reported their their interest in taking Grace with Wales Online revealing that five clubs want to bring him in.

However, it is now thought that Sale and London Irish are the only two sides left chasing the winger with three Welsh rugby union clubs thought to have ended their interest.

That being said, Grace took to the Sky Sports microphone last night to reiterate his desire to stay at Saints and that he will make the ‘right decision’ following a big 42-12 win over Leeds Rhinos.

“Hopefully I’m staying here, it’s just about making the right decision for me and my partner,” Grace said on Sky Sports after the game.

“That’s where things are heading at the moment.”

One contentious moment from last night saw the Welsh wizard dot down on 35 minutes with referee Tom Grant sending the try upstairs for Liam Moore to look at it.

Consecutive replays were needed before Moore came to the conclusion that there was not enough evidence to overturn the decision.

But, Grace believes it was a try all along, saying: “I knew I got it down straight away, I don’t know why they were looking at it so much, I was confident.”
