Dom Looking Forward

OF all Saints’ new signings for 2016 Dominique Peyroux is probably the least known.

That’s not his fault… Theo Fages and Lama Tasi played for Salford in the Super League whilst Jack Owens was top points scorer for Widnes in two of the last three seasons.

Dom signed on a two-year contract from New Zealand Warriors and can play in a multitude of positions.

He’s also appeared for the Cook Islands in the World Cup as well as Samoa – the latter under the tutelage of Sean Long.

“I’m pleased to be here,” he said. “I was persuaded to join the club by Mike Rush and some of the other players who have been here. They said it was a great club to be a part of. Catalans were interested in me too but Zeb Taia spoke really highly of St Helens as did Sia Soliola.

“I’m looking forward to the challenge. It’s great to be part of such a good club and I’m looking forward to pulling the jersey on.

“I will play anywhere I’m asked to really. I was always a utility forward with the Warriors and had to adapt and learn a different role wherever I played.

“I’ve spoken to Keiron (Cunningham) and the coaching staff and they are looking to play me at centre and in the second row. A lot will depend on how pre-season goes and the trial games.”

Dominique has made more than 50 senior appearances but the game he is most looking forward to in Super League is the derby.

“I heard it is like State of Origin in terms of intensity,” he continued. “There was a bit of banter between me and Sam Tomkins at the Warriors about it and the fact we could be running at each other.

“I’ve watched it on the TV; the atmosphere is something you want to be a part of and I’m looking forward to getting the chance.”

Saints’ pre-season campaign will see them host Dewsbury (Jan 17) and Widnes (Jan 24) before they open Super League XXI at home to Huddersfield on February 5.

Tickets for the pre-season clashes are now on sale as well as Memberships for the 2016 season.

Dominique is also available for sponsorship in 2016 by contacting Neil Douglas or calling him on 01744 455 080.
