Saints chairman urges fans to back James Roby's benefit game
1:43pm Monday 27th January 2014 in Sport
SAINTS Chairman Eamonn McManus has urged fans to attend James Roby's Testimonial game at Langtree Park against Wigan Warriors this coming Friday in recognition to his continued loyalty to the Club.
He stated: “James has been one of the leading players of his generation in British rugby league and is readily recognised as one of the best hookers in the world. He was crowned Man of Steel at the age of 22 and has won every club honour in the game with St.Helens.
“The levels of his ability and achievements for the Club over the last decade have only been surpassed by his natural modesty. He embodies all the traits that St.Helens try to represent and uphold in our sport.
“It is a further testament to his character and to his loyalty that he has recently committed the rest of his career to his home town club when he had received significant offers from the NRL in Australia. He has made a real financial sacrifice to play out his career with us.
“The St.Helens public and its supporters should show their appreciation by attending his game on Friday - it's the very least that we can do and I know that we will. "
James Roby’s Testimonial Game will see Saints take on Wigan Warriors on Friday Jan 31.
It will kick off at 8pm and tickets are now on sale.
