St Helens head coach Kristian Woolf thinks next week’s Grand Final against arch-rivals Wigan Warriors is a fitting way to complete the season.
Saints booked their place at the KCOM Stadium next Friday with a resounding 48-2 win over Catalans, and they will face the Warriors in Hull looking to exact revenge for their recent league defeat.
Both teams are no strangers to the Grand Final, with 11 wins between them, and Woolf is excited for the showdown, believing it features the best two teams in Super League.
“It has been a long and tough year in so many ways,” he said. “There have been a lot of little obstacles and a lot of things to overcome and every team has been in the same position.
“I am really proud that the blokes have overcome the obstacles to put themselves in this position.
“To be able to play Wigan next week, the rivalry there, obviously it is a massive occasion, playing a Grand Final against them but it adds a little bit to the occasion, the history of the two clubs.
“I think it is really fitting as well. They have been the two best teams of the whole season.
“They were certainly really strong in their semi-final, just like they have been all season and we are the same so it will be a great final.”
