GREAT Britain’s defeat in Papua New Guinea meant that the Lions ended the four-match tour with four defeats.

Kristian Woolf, the architect of the first of those defeats as Tonga coach, now gets the opportunity to restore some pride to the British game.

Four games in, he will lead Saints in the World Club Challenge clash against the best team from the Australia this past two seasons.

Woolf said: “It is very important and our opportunity to show where we sit in terms of being a World Class team on the back of Great Britain not going as well as they wanted to.

“The competition has had questions asked of it and we get the opportunity to show that we can really compete against a team that has been the best in the NRL for the past two years, and who along with Melbourne Storm, has been the best two in the decade.

“That is a really good motivator and opportunity for us.”

That game takes place at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Saturday, 22 February - Woolf’s fourth game in charge.

“Before we get to that we have to make sure we win our round one game and focus our attention on that.

"We are are looking forward to the World Club and it is high in importance,” he said.
