Domestic dominance has been established but the World Club Challenge may provide extra motivation for next year
How do you improve on greatness? It is a question many rugby league clubs have never even really had to ponder. But as the dust settles on another historic night for St Helens, it is perhaps fair to take a step back and not only appreciate the scale of their latest achievement, but wonder where the Super League champions go next after again successfully defending their Super League title on Saturday night.
The Saints are only the third club in the sport’s 126-year history to win the championship three seasons in a row, emulating Wigan’s legendary class of the 1990s and the Leeds side that won it in 2007, 2008 and 2009. However, this does not feel like the end for a group of players yet to hit their collective peak. “I’m very confident in what we’re going to do going forward,” their coach, Kristian Woolf, said on Saturday evening.
