MANY Saints fans will have had a smile on their face going to work following the team's dramatic Super League Grand Final victory.

And none more so than Stephanie Swift, who is head teacher at Nicol Mere Primary School in Ashton-in-Makerfield.

While the school is situated over the border in Wigan territory and has plenty of Warriors supporters, the school also has a Saints contingent.

St Helens Star:

To mark Grand Final day between Saints and Wigan, pupils and staff came in their respective kits ahead of the big game.

"There are a number of children with parents who are Saints fans," said Stephanie, 32.

"And on Friday (Grand Final day) we all came in our kits.

"I get a lot of grief when there is a derby and on Friday it all came to a head.

"I get a lot of friendly banter off the Wigan fans in school, especially the year six boys."

St Helens Star:

Stephanie says she was "absolutely thrilled" as Saints clinched the dramatic win with Jack Welsby's last-gasp try as the final looked destined for golden point extra time.

"They're all blaming the referee but I'm sticking to my guns!" added Stephanie, from Eccleston.

"There were a lot of happy Saints fans coming to school this morning. It is all good-natured banter."
