Saints captain is one of only two survivors from their last team to reach Wembley in 2008 and he will not be taking it lightly against Catalans Dragons on Sunday“I’ve probably got enough experience for the entire squad on my own,” says the St Helens captain, James Roby, laughing. Super League’s runaway leaders will hope the 32-year-old is right on Sunday as they look to take a significant step towards a treble when they take on Catalans in the Challenge Cup semi-finals in what will be a journey into uncharted territory for many of the young squad.It is 10 years since Saints last reached Wembley, when their victory meant they became only the third side in history to win the Challenge Cup for a third year in a row.
