WELSBY WANTS TO GET THE JOB DONE FOR LOUIE & ROBES
The Saints’ #1 earned a third Dream Team inclusion for the third straight year, and each year he has got the nod in a different position. In 2023. Welsby also discusses finishing in third spot and how if the Red V are going to make it five league titles in a row, it’s going to be a different challenge that the team desire to rise to.
Plus, Saturday will mark James Roby’s final home appearance for St.Helens, and Jack wants to end Roby’s time as a player in style.
St Helens R.F.C. want to ensure that everyone who comes to enjoy game days at the Totally Wicked Stadium can do so in a safe and friendly environment!
The Club would like to reiterate to supporters that it operates a zero-tolerance approach to any anti-social behaviour, at both our own home ground and when visiting other clubs’ stadiums. Misbehaviours that will not be tolerated include, but are not limited to; physical or verbal abuse, violent conduct, missile throwing, excessive alcohol misuse, and any drug misuse.
Furthermore, the use of pyrotechnics is strictly prohibited under both rugby and football ground regulations. They can cause serious injuries to those who carry them as well as fellow spectators, as well as damage to surfaces such as the playing pitch which can cost clubs thousands of pounds.
The Club during last season and this season has taken preventative actions for home fixtures, with additional stewarding and ‘sniffer’ dog patrols around the stadium. Supporters may encounter these dog patrols when approaching the stadium.
St. Helens would also like to encourage parents/guardians of children coming to the ground to ensure they are always aware of what their child is doing and where in the stadium they are at all times.
