St Helens assistant coach and former England and Great Britain full-back Paul Wellens is the latest guest on the Love Rugby League podcast.

Wellens, 42, made 495 appearances for Saints winning five Challenge Cups, five Super League titles and two World Club Challenges in a trophy-laden career.

The 2006 Man of Steel winner joined the backroom staff at the club as a player performance manager, working with the Academy and then the Reserves. He is now assistant coach under Kristian Woolf at the Totally Wicked Stadium.

Wellens sits down with host George Riley to discuss all things rugby league, including James Roby’s upcoming incredible milestone and the season so far for the Saints.
