Saints challenge excites Coote
St Helens new boy Lachlan Coote is impressed with the set up at the club and believes everything is geared up for success in 2019.
The 28-year-old has penned a three-year deal with Saints after arriving from NRL side North Queensland Cowboys, and is looking forward to the future after settling into his new surroundings.
“It was a tough couple of weeks at first with jet lag but we’ve all settled in,” he said. “I’ve been impressed with the club and how they run things. The physios are top notch and the staff are really good.
“I hadn’t run into Justin (Holbrook) before I came here but from what I’ve seen so far he’s a good coach. The things he has in place are top notch.”
Coote is well aware of the history of St Helens and the style of Rugby they play, and is confident he will fit in well.
“Saints are a well-established team with a great history and they’ve won a few Super League premierships,” he added. “I knew I was coming to a great club with a great fan base and one that is very proud. I am very proud to be here.
“There was obviously a lot of interest in the club last season so I kept up to date with how they were going and watched some highlights. I like the style and the way they play and I’m sure it will suit me well.”
