Collins' performances for the Saints in the 2013/14 season earned him regular playing time, and he featured in 13 games as well as the historic Premiership semi-final win over Leicester Tigers. In the next season, he was named LV= Breakthrough Player of the Season for his outstanding displays. Collins played for the Wanderers in the 2016/17 and 2017/18 campaigns, where he won back-to-back titles and helped the team achieve the third-longest winning streak in Premiership Rugby A League history.
