Danny Richardson reveals St Helens did not give him Super League winners’ ring

Danny Richardson says he didn’t receive a Super League winners’ ring from St Helens last season, despite playing 12 games.

The 23-year-old became a fringe player under Justin Holbrook at Saints last season, having lost his place in the team to France international Theo Fages.

Richardson, who has since joined Castleford on a three-year deal, has revealed that he wasn’t given a winners’ ring by the club following their Grand Final triumph over Salford.

He said: “We got in the changing rooms after the win and I was made up for the lads because some of those boys are my best mates.

“Justin came up to me and said they had no rings left, they had given them out to all the other lads. So I didn’t end up getting one.

“Rushy [chief executive Mike Rush] has told me I will get one but whether I will or not, I don’t know. I’ll wait for the call.

“It would be nice to have one because I did play a part and had been there since I was a kid. We’ll see what happens.”

St Helens chief executive Mike Rush insists there is a ring waiting for Richardson at the club though.

He commented: “Danny was told the rings were ordered and his is waiting at the club to be collected.”
