Fages happy with compliments, but 2016 is his focus


Theo Fages insists he is focused on the short-term to ensure his new head coach’s predictions come to fruition.

Keiron Cunningham recently told League Express that his new signing could be St Helens’ halfback for the next 14 years.

And although Fages was pleased to hear those remarks, he knows that he must deliver the goods if he is to remain at Langtree Park for such a period of time.

“Of course I am happy when I hear praise like that, especially from Keiron because everyone knows what a fantastic player he was and he is a good coach,” he told St Helens Star.

“But I am just thinking about this year and then seeing how it goes. I am still learning; I want to improve my game and be a part of the team and hopefully things will go well for me.

“Being here now is good place to be as I can learn plenty from Luke Walsh and Travis Burns in training, on top of that Sean Long, Keiron and Paul Wellens have all been there for me too.

“That said, I just don’t want to be there learning, I want to be playing. I am training hard so hopefully I can get in the team.”
