Part of St Helens’ interim coaching team, Derek Traynor, was delighted to see academy product Regan Grace take his chance over the Easter weekend.
Thrusted in to a high profile debut in the Good Friday derby against Wigan, Grace ended the weekend having scored in both that game and the win over Castleford on Easter Monday.
Traynor said: “You see these lads, you bring them in, you work with them at scholarship level and then in the academy, and it’s fantastic when you see them go on and produce at Super League for Saints.
“That’s what we’re all about and that’s what we want to do.
“Regan’s done really well in a couple of games and he’s a great athlete, but he knows he’s still got a lot to learn, as we know.
“He will have some hiccups and some bumps along the way but he’s got good people around him who can help, and hopefully he’ll go on and be a top Super League player.”
St Helens will look to build on their win over league leaders Castleford when they travel to Widnes on Friday for the Sky Sports televised game.
