Clough: We’re Improving

PAUL Clough says he’s satisfied with the way Saints have started the season.

The 23-year-old forward pointed to the win over Catalans as a confidence booster, whilst the victory over Salford and the draw with Wigan are a good return for the club’s opening four games.

“We didn’t play well against Warrington but did against Salford, Wigan and Catalan,” he said. “We could have won the game at the Millennium Stadium too. We know we aren’t at our best but we are improving each week.

“Catalans was a big game for us considering the circumstances. We lost two players so to have two subs against a big Catalans side and win was good for confidence.

“Our scrambling defence was good too and with the long journey over there the win was morale boosting.”

Clough is naturally a prop forward but in the past has been named at loose forward and second row in the past.

“Prop is a name to me really. Wherever I am I try and play the same game. I am an up and down player and my job is to defend well and get us forward. If I continue to play well I get picked and that’s all you can ask for.

“With Josh Perry coming in there is more competition for places and you will lose your position if you’re not good enough. Royce has always said he will pick players on form rather than reputation.”
