Kevin Naiqama makes his second attempt

Kevin Naiqama signed his time with St Helens, a hero of the Super League Grand Final, as his two attempts helped them defeat the Catalans Dragons 12-10 at Old Trafford and seal three titles in a row.

Naiqama’s unconverted try and a Lachlan Coote penalty saw the Saints hold a small two-point lead at halftime, with James Maloney scoring two penalties to keep League Leaders’ Shield winners dangling from their skirts.

The game turned upside down early in the second half when a yellow card for Tommy Makinson and a converted try from Mike McMeeken put the Dragons ahead, but a second from the Saints’ Fiji international center, now returning to Australia, and conversion. Coote snatched the victory.
