Lewis Dodd to leave St.Helens at the end of 2024

St.Helens R.F.C. can confirm that Lewis Dodd has chosen to leave the Club upon expiry of his contract at the end of the 2024 season.

The 22-year-old was offered a contract extension by the Club which he has unfortunately chosen to turn down in favour of another option and a new challenge ahead of 2025 with NRL club – South Sydney Rabbitohs.

Whilst the Club is disappointed to see Lewis move on at the end of the 2024 season, we wish him well.

Dodd is a proud product of the world-renowned St.Helens youth system having come through both our Scholarship and Academy programmes before making his senior and Super League debut in 2020.

To date, Dodd has played 76 times for St.Helens, scoring 26 tries, 13 conversions, and two drop goals; one of which sealed the Club’s huge World Club Challenge victory over Penrith Panthers in Australia last February.

Lewis has also played his part in the Saints securing: three Super League titles, a League Leader’s Shield, and a Challenge Cup trophy so far as a player in the Red V, and our continued collective aim is to add more silverware this year too.

CEO of St.Helens R.F.C. Mike Rush commented: “While it’s disappointing that Lewis has chosen to move on from the Club come the end of the year, we will wish him well in the next chapter once the season has finished. 

“We know Lewis will remain fully committed to the Club that he has developed and progressed through, and will give his all for Saints and his teammates for the remainder of 2024.”

Lewis Dodd told saintsrlfc.com: “It was not a decision that was made overnight, there were a lot of sleepless nights and tough conversations with family and people close to me, it’s been a tough decision.

“The opportunities that I have, and have already had, across my playing career are down to the staff and players at Saints, from top to bottom. St.Helens has not only made me a better player but a better person, and a person that my family is proud to be associated with. I’ll be forever thankful to St.Helens and the lessons that they have taught me both on and off the field.

“My full focus is on Saints this season, no other thought is in my mind apart from playing for Saints, giving my all, and doing the job that’s required week in and week out. Hopefully, that will lead to trophies, I know what the fans and the Club deserve.

“There are two trophies to be won this year and the most important thing to me right now is to go win those for St.Helens. I want to be there at Old Trafford with the fans holding those trophies and having another one of those moments in life that I can cherish with the supporters.”
