Holbrook comments on Woolf appointment

Saints boss Justin Holbrook has had his say on the man who will succeed him at the club as head coach.

Earlier this week, St Helens announced that Kristian Woolf will step into the role from 1 November.

Holbrook told The St Helens Star’s Mike Critchley: “I have heard nothing but good reports on him as a person and as a coach, so I think the club is in great hands and he’ll do a great job.

“Every coach brings something slightly different, but the club is in a great spot here and has some great staff and great players, so it is an easy post to step into.

“It is good to know that the club is in a great place when I move on.”
