This will be my year in the Challenge Cup, says Saints star

| 18.02.2015

With two convincing wins from two Super League games so far St Helens have got their title defence off to a solid start.

This will come as no surprise to 29-year-old prop Louis McCarthy-Scarsbrook, who rates the Saints’ chances of success very highly, but the London-born star is targeting success in other competitions too.

Read on to see why Challenge Cup glory is on the former Harlequins player’s mind and which of his new teammates he feels will be putting in some decent displays in 2015.

What would be a successful season for St Helens in Super League XX?

Winners would be a good season. Winning everything would be a very good season. I think are chances are very good, I’d say 2/1.

If you could pick any other Super League player to sign for St Helens this year who would you pick and why?

Jamie Peacock would be up there, I know we’ve got Robes, but probably Peackock.

Who will be the next big thing at St Helens?

Atelea Vea  and Travis Burns are two new signings and they are looking good. Some good youngsters coming through would be Joe Greenwood, Luke Thompson and Andre Savelio so the future looks bright really.

If Ladbrokes gave you a free £100 bet (other than St Helens) to win the Super League who would pick and why?

If I can’t bet on St Helens i’ll go for Helens Saints. They look a good side.

Ladbrokes are the proud new sponsors of the Challenge Cup, what is your favourite memory of the competition?

They’ve all been bad as we always get knocked out in the semis. My best moment will be this year when we win it.
