PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Regan Grace has played his final match for St Helens. The Welsh winger, who will join rugby union side Racing 92 in 2023, left the field after pulling up unchallenged during the final minutes of the Saints' defeat to Salford on Sunday, with Grace immediately sent for scans. They have determined he has ruptured his Achilles tendon meaning that his season, and his Saints career, is over. It is another huge injury blow for the reigning Super League champions and the latest in a string of serious setbacks for Grace this year, having missed the start of the season due to a bicep injury. Saints coach Kristian Woolf insisted the club will support him as much as possible in his recovery before he heads to Racing 92 to begin a career in rugby union in 2023. “Regan has unfortunately ruptured his Achilles and it is a devastating blow for him and for us as a team and a club as well," he said.

. The fact that he’s not going to be here next year adds to the feeling and it is sad that this is the way that his Saints career at the moment has finished. “We all really feel for him and know that he is well supported there by his partner Nina and obviously his family. But it is a real shame and a really sad way to see him finish. He will undergo surgery in the next few days and that is something the club will try and do as soon as possible for him. One thing this club does really well is support the players in that way but also off the field. “He’ll get all the support he needs from the club and his from his teammates. We will make sure that when he leaves at the end of the year to go to his next club, that we put him in the best position we can because we want him to be successful there as well.” Read next Why Keegan Hirst's rugby league return has been put on hold until 2023 after Batley Bulldogs move Sir Lindsay Hoyle hopes to boost rugby league's profile during term as RFL president Lionesses inspire England's rugby league stars in pursuit of World Cup glory Keegan Hirst makes shock rugby league return driven by LGBTQ stance amid Manly pride issue Five off-contract Super League players in great form as they pursue new deals
