Roby & Wellens Sign Long Term Saints Deals

St Helens Rugby League Club have announced they have secured the long term services of two of the club's most integral squad members - James Roby and Paul Wellens.

Reigning Man-of-Steel and try scorer in Saints Challenge Cup victory over Catalan Dragons at Wembley in August, Roby, 21, has put pen to paper on a four year contract which will see him stay at the club until End of Season 2011.

Recognised as the country's best full back, Wellens, 27, has signed a three year deal which will see him stay at the club until End of Season 2010.

"I'm sure this announcement will come as a great early Christmas present for all Saints fans!" commented Saints Chairman Eamonn McManus. "There was significant interest in James which is understandable as he is one of the hottest properties in the game.

"Therefore, we are delighted to have secured his services for another four years.

"Paul has established himself as the best full back in the game and will continue to play a pivotal role as the club moves forward."

advertisementHe continues: "Not only have both players come through our Academy system, which shows its strength, but both have become an integral part of the club's success as well as being excellent ambassadors for St Helens.

"Going forward, they will continue to be the backbone of the club over the forthcoming seasons as we signal our intention to bring even more silverware to Knowsley Road."
