Justin Holbrook hails Super League champions St Helens
Happiness Has Been the Overpowering emotion for Justin Holbrook as he signed off St Helens.
Saturday victory over Salford Red Devils in the Grand Final at Old Trafford ensured in charge of Saints.
As St Helens clinched their first Grand Final triumph since 36, holbrook confessed over it because of his final match before returning to Australia, but was thrilled at full-time.
A lot of folks asked me in the week about my emotions and I got really emotional on the bus driving to Old Trafford, Holbrook said.
I am glad no one was sitting near me since it was very awkward and it struck me then it had been my last game, but its hit me then than after.
Now, I feel much happier knowing that the task is finished.
All of us know what a season weve had, however, we knew we needed to provide from the Grand Final and Im so satisfied.
Saturdays Grand Final win has been the culmination of the job when Holbrook combined St Helens during the 2017 year started, to become the dominant side of Super League this year steering them out.
The 43-year-old was pleased to provide a fifth Super League crown for the club after falling out on major honours last year and suffering a surprise defeat to Warrington Wolves within this seasons Challenge Cup final, particularly after winning the 2019 League Leaders Shield with a record margin.
Im quite happy for everybody at our heart, Holbrook said. I understand just how much it means to our city and Salford have done a great job to get to the Grand Final.
They played extremely well and we could not have played a lot better, so I am quite satisfied with the caliber of the match.
Our players and staff understand weve fallen short in the past few years, so it has likely been two-and-a-half decades work in advance for the stage we are happy with.
To understand how much rugby league means to the town and to deliver the trophy back to these is what makes it so special.
