Hat-trick hero Regan Grace earns plaudits from Saints coach Kristian Woolf

St Helens coach Kristian Woolf was full of praise for winger Regan Grace after his spectacular hat-trick of tries helped the reigning champions to a 48-0 rout of Leeds at Headingley.

The Wales international stole the show with two length-of-the-field tries and an acrobatic finish, all of which would have brought the crowd to its feet had there been one.

Woolf said: “He’s a little bit different to the guys you get in the NRL.

“He’s so energetic, has great footwork and a turn of speed that can turn nothing into something, which he did tonight.

“It’s nice to see him get a bit of open space. He didn’t get that much last week or before the break.

“I was really happy with the way we just kept turning up and didn’t give them an opportunity to score, that was really good to see.”
