Newcastle Knights interim coach Kristian Woolf has been announced as the new Head Coach of St Helens from 2020.
Woolf will replace Justin Holbrook, who is taking charge of NRL side Gold Coast Titans.
The Australian had taken temporary charge of the Knights following the departure of ex Saints Head Coach Nathan Brown.
He has also been in charge of Tonga, and was at the helm during their successful run at the World Cup in 2017.
“I’m confident we can achieve great things together,” Woolf said. “I’m excited and privileged to be joining St Helens as head coach. It’s a great opportunity for me.”
