LEON Pryce has spoken of his frustration at his injury-ravaged season.

The influential stand-off was back in action against Castleford on Sunday, but says he never feared his career was over.

“It’s been a very frustrating year,” admitted Pryce.

“I suffered a neck injury at Wakefield last July, when I fell into a tackle, but I didn’t realise how serious it was and played at Warrington the following week.

“Then a specialist diagnosed a bulging neck disc and an operation ended my season.

“Then I suffered a groin problem, was out for four weeks and tore the abductor on my comeback. I’ve never missed as many matches in my career and the two shoulder reconstructions I have had were both in the off-season.

“I was never worried my career could be over, but it’s great to be back.”

n SAINTS have slashed prices on replica kits ahead of the club’s semi-final clash with Wigan.

Shirts are now priced £40 for two, or £24.99 each at the club’s Brownlow Arcade in St Helens town centre or Saints’ official website.

The shop is also stocking scarves, flags, face paints and everything else you need for that semi-final experience, and the club is hoping fans will turn the Halliwell Jones Stadium, Warrington, into a sea of red and white come matchday.
