Roby Up For Challenge

James Roby says Saints are looking forward to the challenge Castleford present when the two sides lock horns on Saturday.

“It doesn’t get much tougher than going to Cas away in our first round of the Challenge Cup,” he said. “It will be a great atmosphere, hostile and loud but it is one we are really looking forward to.

“As a group and staff we are up for the challenge and we will try and go there and enjoy it. Hopefully, on the day, if we get our job done correctly then we will progress to the next round.

“We can’t look too far ahead – this is a challenge we need to get through before we consider anything else.”

It’s been a decade since Saints were last at Wembley; a stat that isn’t lost on Roby.

“I was lucky to be involved in the Cup wins of 06, 07 and 08 and it has been too long for a club like St Helens not to be back at Wembley. It probably isn’t good enough for us as a team to go that long.

“That said, we can’t be thinking of the bigger picture. We have a job to do on Saturday.”

Tickets for Saturday’s game remain on sale from the Ticket Office, by calling 01744 455 052 and online.
