Paul Wellens

Head Coach

Simply one of the greatest players in the history of St.Helens R.F.C. and the sport, Paul has been an integral part of the Club over the last 22 seasons.

Mr St Helens has played 495 times for the Saints, scoring 1,005 points and collected a whole host of personal accolades.

As well as being part of Saints trophy laden success of recent times he won Man of Steel in 2006 to go alongside the Players’ Player of the Year and Rugby League Writers’ Player of the Year in the same season.

In 2007 and 2008, he also took home the Lance Todd trophy in Saints’ Wembley successes over Catalans and Hull FC respectively.

Representative honours total 31 for Great Britain and England with four for Lancashire.

After he ended his playing career, Paul joined the backroom team as a Player Performance Manager, working with the Academy and then the Reserves.

Paul was named Head Coach on 5th October 2022 after working under Justin Holbrook and Kristian Woolf as the Club won four Super League Grand Finals in a row.

In his first competitive match in charge of the Saints, he brought home from Australia the World Club Challenge in what might just be the Club’s greatest ever victory.
