Costello Pleased With Form

Costello Pleased With Form

St Helens centre Matty Costello has been happy with his own personal form ahead of their clash with a “dangerous” Salford side.

Costello has been thrust into action for Justin Holbrook’s side this season after the injury to England man Mark Percival during the busy Easter period. It means Costello, who made his debut for the Saints last season against Huddersfield Giants has become more of a regular fixture in the side.

He scored his first tries for the club after getting a hat trick in their 50-14 win against Catalans Dragons last month. Costello has once again been named in Justin Holbrook’s 19-man squad for their game against Salford on Friday at the Totally Wicked Stadium and says he is grateful for the opportunity granted to him. “Yes, I have been very pleased [with the opportunity].

Unfortunately Percy [Mark Percival] got injured, but it has provided a few opportunities for me to go and play and I am enjoying it. It’s going well,” he told the club website. “I hadn’t scored before that and to score three in one game I have never done that before for Saints, so yes I was very happy. I am pleased [with my form]. I want to get a bit sharper and improving each week, but I am happy with how it is going.” On their opponents he said: “Salford are really good side. “They have lots of dangerous players in their side and we have done a lot of video on them this week. It is about getting up fr the task tomorrow.”
