Saints Pick Up The Pace

Saints continued their pre-season preparation with an intense session at the Parc Eirias in Colwyn Bay.

Whilst the majority of training for the 2018 Betfred Super League campaign has been at our Cowley Training Facility – the coaching staff freshened things up by taking the boys away to the seaside.

Part one of the camp was training at Parc Eirias in Colwyn Bay.

“This was a venue Justin identified as a place we could get away as a group together,” Assistant Coach Jamahl Lolesi said. “It isn’t too far away from home and it gives us the opportunity to train in weather we would expect at the start of the season.

“It’s good to come away as a group as it freshens everyone up. We will spend time together and bond.”

Tuesday’s session saw the lads run through several drills before an opposed session refereed by Jack Smith.

This allowed the players to see the new rule interpretations in action in readiness for the new campaign.

Jamahl continued: “We’ve taken their phones away too so they will have to use old school communication for a while, which will be interesting as everyone is on their phones these days! We also have a few fun activities planned.

“The chairman will present the history of St Helens to the players too before a tough session to end the camp.

“We’ve had a good pre-season; everyone came back with a great attitude and in good shape. But of course, everyone is flying this time of the year, undefeated and winning the comp!”

Saints kick off their Betfred Super League campaign at home to Castleford on Friday February 2.
