HOW refreshing it was to read that in these days of overpaid and overrated footballers that James Roby should lavish praise on both his team-mates and staff at St Helens RLFC for helping him with support when injured.

As an ex-player in both union and league it is obvious to me that his workload, tenacity and enthusiasm is contagious and brings stability to the Saints team.

All these rare assets will be solely missed when he eventually hangs his boots up.
Until then, the best of luck to him.
