LOUIE McCarthy-Scarsbrook has been casting an eye over his pack teammates and is convinced Saints have a forward line to fear.
He says there are some “big units” around the club and the side has a lot of experience and youth heading into the new season.
“Nathan Brown has done well to recruit who he has,” Louie said. “Kyle Amor was outstanding for Wakefield last year; he was a workhorse. Richie Beaumont from Hull HR is a beast and then you move on to the big fella, Mose Masoe.
“I have never seen a bigger man. I thought he wasn’t tall and then he turned around and I thought… he is a big set of human. I watched him in the World Cup and was hurting looking at him.
“He can take all the opposition’s energy, James Roby can get a quick play the ball, pass to me and all should be good! We have a real good team this year and running off the back of big men will make my game a lot easier.”
Louie has played 91 games for Saints since making his debut in 2011 and reckons the 2014 version of the team is the best yet.
“Browny has had time to put things in place and now has the half back combination he wants as well as a massive pack and young backs who played out of their skin last season,” he continued. “Our kicking game means we can pin teams down and thrive on it.
“We look like a good team on paper but we have to work hard to achieve the heights we all want and want the fans want too – and that is silverware.”
Saints will kick off their Super League title tilt at Warrington on Thursday February 13 before the Langtree Park opener with Hull FC eight days later.
