Roby: We’re Confident

JAMES Roby says Saints are confident heading into their semi final clash with Leeds this Friday.

“It is a huge game and we are 80 minutes from Old Trafford,” he said. “We had such a great experience there last year and we want to experience it again. Everything is on the line Friday night and we will be ready. I’m sure they will be ready too.

“These are the games you want to play in as a player and we are confident in our own abilities. We have the capability to go on and get to the Grand Final once again.

“Last year’s journey to the wasn’t plain sailing and we suffered some adversity; people doubted us too. This year we have the same doubters but we are confident. The new league structure has made it more intense and anyone is capable of winning it.

“We knew we would have to play away as we finished fourth and face a quality team. To go on and win the Grand Final you have to beat those sides.”

Saints head into Friday’s game on the back of three wins in their last four – one of those crucially at the Rhinos.

He continued: “We have a good record at Headingley and won there not so long ago. We can take confidence from that but it is one of those games when past record goes out of the window.

“They are seeking the treble and it is up to us to stop that. They are a quality team and full of internationals in the forwards and backs. We will have to be at the top of our game.”

Roby was named in the Dream Team for the fifth time this week – a recognition he is delighted with.

“It’s nice to get a pat on the back for your effort and consistency. I am very proud and privileged to be here and amongst this selection of players.”
