St Helens’ hugely experienced hooker and captain James Roby has signed a new deal with the club which will take him to the end of the 2021 campaign, a deal which will see him extend his stay with the Saints to two decades with the club.

33-year-old Roby has made over 400 appearances for the 2018 Super League League Leaders’ Shield winners and won the Man of Steel in 2007. Since making his debut in 2004, the thirty-time England international has also been part of two Super League Grand Final winning teams, lifting the trophy in both 2006 and 2014. Boasting a World Club Challenge victory in 2007 as well, Roby has lifted all possibly major trophies during his time with the club.

Understandably, after extending his deal with the club he first joined in 2002, Roby was deilghted. “I have enjoyed many great years at the club and I will be doing all I can to bring more trophies in 2019 and beyond,” he told the media.
