With last Thursday being the one year anniversary of Justin Holbrook taking charge of the club, we asked our intrepid Redvee followers over on our Social Media sites to sum up what they thought of the Coach in 5 words.

Over on Facebook our favourite was definitely Ross Metcalfe’s effort…

“The wonder from down under”… take a bow Ross, we’ll nick that for a future headline!

Whilst over on the @Redveedotnet Twitter ,our favourite came from Willis @onlywills, who summed up the thoughts of every bloke in St Helens – “I’d probably have his babies” – If only it was biologically possible eh!?
