Don't forget Penrith won the NRL only a year or so after Royce was sacked - he played a large part in bringing through the players who eventually won the premiership.
He's excellent with young players, who really look up to him, so I'm sure he'd do well at bringing through saints' youngsters.
He's been really keen to go back to England ever since leaving Hull.
If you want to know how committed a coach he is, remember he ran five marathons in five consecutive days when he was coach at Hull, to raise money for the club to sign Des Hasler. That's some achievement
I spoke to him just after he'd finished the fourth. I told him you had to admire his commitment. He said he didn't know about that but he needed his f***ing head testing
I thought he did a great job when he was here, and the marathon effort was well worth it. Hasler was magnificent for us.
