Hohaia hopes home fans can roar St Helens to World Club Challenge glory

St Helens stand-off Lance Hohaia is sure that the Langtree Park faithful can help his team win the World Club Challenge next year.

Saints welcome NRL champions the South Sydney Rabbitohs to the North of England on Sunday February 22, and the Kiwi star is anticipating a tough test.

“The Bunnies are definitely a team that have improved in last three to four years,” he told his club’s official website.

“They have always been talented but have probably been a little bit inconsistent over the years.

“They have found that consistency now with their coaching structure and the players they have.

“They play behind a big forward pack and that helps how they play the game. Then they have some of the best players in the world too like Greg Inglis.

“They will be a tough side to beat but we have the advantage. They have to come over here to play at Langtree Park and we have to use that to our advantage and not take a backward step.

“I know if we play our best on the day then we give ourselves a great challenge of becoming World Club Champions.

“It will be a great spectacle. We are taking it very seriously.

“The chance to be World Club Champions is prestigious and we are very much looking forward to it.”
