Wellens: We’re Ready

PAUL Wellens is confident his charges will be more than up to the task when Saints take on Wigan in Saturday’s Grand Final.

Playing in a record equalling tenth final, the 34-year-old knows the challenge the Warriors will present.

“It is a fantastic occasion and one as a team and a group we are excited about, he said. “Wigan have a formidable team, they have shown that and it will be a tough challenge but it is one we are really looking forward to.

“Saints v Wigan are usually competitive games. There is an intense rivalry between the two clubs and it is great to be part of that. There is a respect there too and it all makes for a great game on a stage that can be no bigger.

“I don’t think any of the games this season will have any bearing on this one. You will have two committed teams going at each other.”

He continued: “Are Saints due one? Let’s hope so but you can’t take that for granted. We will prepare the best we can, be determined and give it everything. We have been written off as a group but we have kept bouncing back, kept on going and we will do that again this Saturday.

“There are a number of players leaving and Nathan too. It would be good to send them off with a win.

“But it’s not just for them; it’s for the future . If we take home the trophy then it could be a catalyst for many more to come for this group.”
