St Helens “the best in the Super League era” and “don’t get enough credit” according to Kristian Woolf

St Helens keep on making history. Now Super League’s most successful club in Grand Finals winning a ninth decider last night extending their record Super League titles to 10, the Saints also did the unthinkable.

On their record 14th Grand Final appearance, they won a fourth consecutive Super League title setting a new Super League record.

This, unsurprisingly, left departing coach Kristian Woolf very proud after masterminding the last three of those.

However, he believes the Saints don’t get enough credit and in his mind they are the best in the Super League era.

“Extremely proud, they’re an outstanding group of men, Woolf said, “To win four in a row, I don’t think they get enough credit. People don’t realise how hard it is, there is a reason why every grand final has been won against a different team.

“To find the drive to get through the adversity every team tosses up and give yourself an opportunity to win a grand final but this team hasn’t just done that they’ve won every time.

“I know there’s a debate but in my mind you can’t compete eras in squads strength and imagers but you can compare results. There’s no doubt that this team is the best in the Super League era and with what they’ve got as a group they’ll give themselves a chance again next year.”

He also doesn’t think the Saints have been given enough credit for the way they’ve handled a bit of an injury crisis in 2022 either: “You’ve seen all year, this group has been through a lot of adversity. I don’t think it’s been recognised not just how many players but losing key players who would be the best or up there in their positions and they just keep overcoming that adversity because of how hard they want to work.”

He also noted another area where this group could receive more plaudits: he stressed that this group are a good group both on and off the field in terms of setting examples and that they should be celebrated more: “I don’t think this group gets enough credit not just for the way they win and what they’ve done, but you don’t see any of these blokes in the papers for doing the wrong thing. They’re an exceptional group of men. They’re role models, they’re flagship for what this competition is all about and I think we need to celebrate them more than we do.”
