St Helens and Wales winger Regan Grace has admitted he cannot wait to test himself against some of the best players in the world next season.

The 22-year-old is back in pre-season after being in Australia with the Wales squad for the recent World Cup Nines tournament.

He is eager to get back to full fitness and already has his eye on February’s World Club Challenge against Sydney Roosters.

The Saints will battle the NRL premiers at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Saturday, February 22.

Grace told Saints TV: “It’s a new experience for me. Something I’ve never played in before.

“I’ve obviously watched it. Yeah, I’m looking forward to the experience and competing against the best that Australia has got.”
