Kristian Wolffs modus of operandi since stepping into thhe Totally Wicked Stadium has been to strive for improvement. Last year when the league was suspended due to the pandemic, he set out with this same plan whcih led to the Saints being crowned back to back league champions. The aim this year will be to become the first team to win three Grand Finals in a row.
“If I think back to the Grand Final in particular, the effort and the way we took that game on and the challenges in it, I couldn’t be prouder of the group,” Woolf said. “At the same time, I think we can play a little better footy and be a little bit smarter in terms of what we do with the footy.”
He has said that the quality of the Super League has already gone up from last year with the recruitment done by the other teams. This year firepower was added in the form of promising prop Dan Norman joining from the broncos along with the trio of Sione Mata’utia, Joel Thompson and Agnatius Paasi.
“They came over at a really difficult time, they all came exactly when we asked them to and they came without hesitation, and it has been difficult for them,” he added. “Australia doesn’t have many restrictions at all, and they came over and they’re in the middle of a lockdown.”
