Arnold also played for St Helens on the wing in the 1996 Challenge Cup Final at Wembley Stadium, London, scoring a try in each half of the match, helping his team to a 40-32 victory against Bradford Bulls.[3]

During his time at St Helens, Arnold won two Challenge Cup final winners' medals (1996 and 1997), both finals against Bradford Bulls. He was also part of Saints' Championship winning side of 1996.
