MATTY Dawson says his goal is to play as many games as he can this season.
The 23-year-old’s signing from Huddersfield Giants has gone under the radar a little with the arrival of Luke Walsh, Mose Masoe, Richard Beaumont and Kyle Amor, but he is keen to make his mark.
“I only played a few first team games at Huddersfield so it’s understandable I’m under the radar,” he said. “Hopefully that will help me.
“I was coming off contract and I heard Browny (Nathan Brown) was interested in signing me. He took me from Castleford to Huddersfield but I never had the chance to play for him because I had some bad injuries.
“The pull of a club like St Helens is difficult to turn down and I’ve come here to win trophies.”
Matty played on the wing for Huddersfield last season but he revealed that Brown is more likely to utilise him as a centre.
All that is down the line though as Dawson, and his teammates, work hard in pre-season.
“It’s been tough so far,” he added. “I am working hard on my conditioning so I’m ready.”
