SAINTS now have both major trophies locked away in the Totally Wicked Stadium trophy cabinet after they added to last year’s Grand Final win with their first Challenge Cup triumph since 2008.

But coach Kristian Woolf has backed his side to maintain their hunger to keep on achieving.

Their next target will be fixed on the Super League three-peat ­— something Saints have never done in their history.

St Helens Star:

Woolf said: “This group has earned so much already and you can’t forget that they won Super League in 2019 and 2020 - and now they have done what they have not been able to do for a long time and win the Cup.

“They are writing their own terrific story.

“One thing that is exceptional about the group is that even though they have achieved so much, there is still a real hunger in the group.

“They showed that at Wembley and had to draw on everything, to fight hard and get that win in some really tough conditions.

St Helens Star:

“The biggest challenge we had at the start of the year was to make sure we had the hunger - and it is a special kind that you need to win Challenge Cups and Super Leagues.

“To win the game the way we did shows we have still got that. It is an exceptional group.

“We have a long way to go this year - but I will back this group to keep achieving.”

In baking hot conditions at Wembley, Saints had to rally from a half time deficit and the loss of Theo Fages to win the game 26-12.

St Helens Star:

“We had to do it tough in terms of the pressure we put on ourselves in the first half and also by losing a couple of key players, especially Theo.

“But this is one group that you want to be involved with in that situation when they have got to fight for things.

“Be really honest and be really tough – we have shown that plenty of times. I could not be prouder of the group,” he said.
