Danny Richardson says he is enjoying life in the first team but knows a lot of hard work lies ahead.
The 21-year-old has been an ever present this season and is Super League’s top point’s scorer with 140.
“I made my debut last year and the plan was to try and get as many games as I could,” he said. “I knew there would be competition for places this year so I had to make sure I had a big pre-season and do everything right.
“Thankfully, Justin has put his faith in me and the boys have made it easy. We’re winning games too so I have kept my spot. I am enjoying it and I am taking everything in.”
Danny and his teammates have scored 126 points in their last two matches – but face a Catalans side that beat Hull FC at the weekend.
“I love playing in this team but it is important to keep grounded,” he continued. “We are top of the league but nothing is won at this time of the year. We have to keep on working hard for each other.
“We are striving to play well and win games but no one expects to win by 60. We didn’t expect it last week and we didn’t at Salford too.
“We are working hard for each other and the points are rolling in.”
Saints are next in action when they host Catalans Dragons on Thursday May 3 (7.45pm).
