Walmsley aiming to make amends for last year

St Helens forward Alex Walmsley has revealed that the club are determined to put things right in the World Club Series this year following their hammering at the hands of South Sydney 12 months ago.

The Saints fell desperately short in the showpiece match of the new series, rounding off a 3-0 reverse for Super League sides at the hands of their NRL counterparts.

They have the opportunity to start the series with a bang this year against Sydney Roosters though, and Walmsley admits they want to put right what happened last year.

“We were bitterly disappointed with the performance last year,” he said. “We didn’t do ourselves or the competition any justice.

“The way we lost, a few of the boys want to write some wrongs this time out. We didn’t show the talent Super League has and how good we are as a league.

“It is important we do well in that game – and we want to head into the match full of hunger.

“We cannot wait for the challenge.”
