Lussick leaves St. Helens

St. Helens R.F.C. can confirm that an agreement has been reached with an NRL club for an undisclosed transfer fee which will see Joey Lussick return home to Australia and leave Saints immediately.

As revealed by Head Coach Paul Wellens following the Saints’ Challenge Cup Semi-Final defeat to Leigh Leopards, the hooker has played his final game for St. Helens, and he leaves with the best wishes of everyone at the Club.

The Saints have been working on a suitable replacement for Lussick to join the squad immediately, and details on this player will be confirmed in due course.

In his time at the Totally Wicked Stadium, Lussick helped the Red V secure the League Leaders’ Shield and the Super League title at Old Trafford in his first season, and earlier this year was part of the team that made history by beating Penrith Panthers to win the World Club Challenge.

Despite having the rest of this and next season to run on his contract, Lussick now returns home to Australia to join an NRL club.

Lussick leaves the Club having made 52 match appearances, scoring 11 tries and kicking 7 goals.

The Saints would like to thank Joey for his efforts as a St. Helens player, and we wish him the very best for the future.
