Paul Wellens has said he is relishing the challenge of celebrating a new contract extension by helping St Helens defend their Super League title.

The champions announced on Friday the long-serving 34-year-old former Great Britain and England utility back has extended his contract at Saints until the end of the 2015 season.

Wellens said he was looking forward to working with new coach, club legend and former team-mate Keiron Cunningham next season.

"I'm really looking forward to 2015," he told the official club website. "With a World Club Challenge to look forward to, the new Super League format and a title to defend it is a very exciting time for the club.

"I'm in the very latter stages of my career and with a good crop of young players coming through my focus is on training hard and competing for a place in the team whilst also using my experience to help these young players develop further.

"This is a challenge I'm looking forward to. I'm also excited to be working with Keiron Cunningham, Jamahl Lolesi and [assistant coach] Sean Long."

Wellens joined Saints' Academy system in 1996, made his first team debut in 1998 and has gone on to make 491 appearances, scoring 230 tries, 40 goals and one drop goal for 1,001 points.

He has won two World Club Challenges, five Super League titles and five Challenge Cups as well as being part of the team that has secured the League Leaders' Shield five times.

He also won the Man of Steel and Harry Sunderland Awards in 2006 and the Lance Todd Trophy in 2007 and 2008.
