Wait Is Almost Over

LOUIE McCarthy-Scarsbrook just cannot wait to get the season started!

Fresh from a successful 2014, the 29-year-old forward says despite an off-season of change he expects Saints to be in the hunt once more.

“Keiron has come in with his own ideas and we look sharp,” he said. “We have worked hard in pre-season but now we just want to get started.

“We’ve lost some big players in Sia Soliola, Anthony Laffranchi and Willie Manu but have brought in some real quality. Travis Burns seems to have been around for a while and Atelea Vea is big, strong and has brought a lot to our game.

“You saw that during both friendlies – he will be a real asset for us.”

He continues: “Wilko has been at the club a long time and has learnt from the best. He leads on the field, is very charismatic, enthusiastic and has a real drive to win. He has that expectation of all of us. He will have pressure but hopefully the boys will take the weight from him.

“Our aim is to go one better and win all three. I’m sure all teams are the same. Winning the Grand Final was one of the best feelings ever and we want to do it again.

“But before then we know with the comp changing we have to aim up each week. If we go in with a relaxed attitude then we won’t win.

“The aim for all is to get into the top 8 and then look towards the Grand Final. We need to start well, that will stand us in good stead, and then hopefully we can go all the way once again.”
