“These are exciting times – I have signed a three-year deal so hopefully I will end my career here and will be doing my best to help the club win as many trophies in that time,” Burns told the St Helens Star.
“It is hard for me to say what I am going to bring to the table – people will judge that themselves when I play.”
Burns believes that he has already learned much from Sean Long, who recently returned as a coach to the club where he made his name as a player.
“His football sense is amazing – and I have learned so much off him already in such a short space of time,” said Burns.
“And I think, looking ahead, he will help even an already fantastic player like Luke Walsh become so much better than he is now.
“Longy’s presence and knowledge around the training is tremendous and he will be packing some of that knowledge in to the halves here.
“I am looking forward to working with Longy and I will keep working hard on my game and keep improving.”
