WELSH flier Regan Grace broke his 2020 try drought in fine style with a hat-trick in Saints' 48-0 romp at Headingley.

Tryless since last September, the speedster started off with an 80-metre effort, stepping and swerving up the middle after Lachlan Coote had fielded a high kick.

He doubled his tally with a close-range effort with a spectacular finish at the corner.

But saved the best till last when fielding another Leeds attacking kick and just seeing a 100m stretch in front of him.

No wonder coach Kristian Woolf was delighted - with Grace's performance being the icing on the cake of a fine overall team performance against the Super League leaders.

Woolf said: "Regan is nice and fast and it is great to see him get a bit of open space.

"He didn't get much last week or many opportunities prior to the COVID break.

"It was great to see him in some open space and show how quick he is. He is energetic with great footwork.

"His turn of speed means he can turn nothing into something as he showed tonight."
