“They could go four, five, six or seven in a row” – How social media reacted to St Helens’ Grand Final win over Catalans

Last night, St Helens won a historic Grand Final to become only the second team in the history of the summer era to win three titles in a row. It was a magnificent final adorned by big moments and controversy. That was my view anyway, but what was yours? How did social media react?

Unfortunately, plenty of people felt the refereeing was central in deciding the contest. It certainly played it’s part in some key moments leaving some supporters feeling that Catalans were hard done by.

However, that shouldn’t take away from St Helens’ famous win and the terrific performance of two-try hero Kevin Naiqama. The rugby league world had nothing but praise for the centre and his humble attitude as he collected the Harry Sunderland Award.

Plenty of the game’s stars gave their takes on the Grand Final on Twitter too. Luke Gale was full of praise whilst John Bateman was forced to back track.

Bateman’s tweet prompted some widespread discussion about just how many titles St Helens could win in a row.

However, for St Helens fans, it was all about enjoying the now and a third consecutive title and the double after a remarkable season from the now nine-time Super League Champions.
