The World Club Champions are returning home on Friday night for our first home game of Betfred Super League 2023!
It has been a fantastic start to the 2023 season for St Helens with a hugely successful trip to Australia with a win over St George Illawarra Dragons, the history-making victory over Penrith Panthers to secure a third World Title, followed by getting the domestic campaign started with a victory away at Castleford Tigers last Sunday afternoon.
Now we’re excitedly racing towards this Friday night and welcoming Leeds Rhinos for the first home league match of 2023, and boy do we have an exciting show planned for the Saints supporters!

In the run-up to kick-off we will hit the light switch with a HUGE pre-match lightshow, so make sure to get in your seats early as the action starts at 7:00pm with the floodlights dipped before being switched off for a brilliant, dazzling lights show to really get the atmosphere electric ahead of seeing the team play.
FLAMES & PYRO
The biggest pre-match professional pyrotechnics at a Saints match to dare will make the players’ entrance onto the field one to remember!
CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD

RIVERSTONE PERFORMING LIVE
Fantastic alternate rock band Riverstone will be performing live from 7:20pm in the heart of our West Stand on the entertainment platform.
With a catalogue of energetic and hard hitting tunes, we’re sure they will leave you wanting more!
A LOOK AT LEEDS…
The Rhinos are on the hunt for their first win of the Super League season, having lost heavily in the competition opener at Warrington 42-10, and narrowly missing out against Hull FC at home last Friday night.
Leeds have added Sam Lisone, Justin Sangare, and James McDonnell to their forward pack, along with Derrell Olpherts, Nene Macdonald, and Luke Hooley to their outside backs. With the halfback pairing of Aiden Sezer and Blake Austin looking to guide the team around the field.
LAST TIME VS LEEDS
Last year following the mid-season appointment of Head Coach Rohan Smith the Rhinos found better fortunes and made it all the way to the Grand Final at Old Trafford in what was our last meeting. The Saints secured a fourth straight Super League title, winning 24-12.
Saints have a strong recent record against Leeds, winning the last twelve meetings, with the Rhinos’ last win over St Helens coming back in March 2018.
SAINTS SUPER START IN SUPER LEAGUE
One week removed from becoming World Champs, Paul Wellens’ men put in a professional performance over a highly motivated Castleford Tigers side to win 2-26.
