Roby Confident Of Progression

JAMES Roby believes Saints are more than capable of doing a number on Warrington tonight.

The hooker was named in the Dream Team for 2012 but put aside that personal accolade to fully focus on the Qualifying Play Off.

“It’s a good record that we’ve got to Old Trafford for the last six years, but not good that we’ve lost the last five,” he said. “We want to win it this year. You can’t say we don’t deserve it for all the time we have been there but we have a lot of hard work to do before that.

“We are confident that with the team we’ve got we can do it.

“These are the big games now that all the players want to be part of – and they don’t come any bigger than Warrington.”

Roby has been at the hub of everything Saints have done well this season and was a key part of the win over the Warriors.

“Even though they had a man sent off they played really well and were very physical,” Roby added. “If you ask any of the players there were a lot of lads carrying bruises. The game was emotional and the fans were superb.

“They are fantastic games to be a part of and we are made up to get a win after they have turned us over a few times. We can take confidence from that going into Warrington.”

Roby pointed out the Wolves’ pack as their main attribute as well as the ability to shift the ball around the park.

And it’s in that engine room where Saints will need to be better at the weekend.

“That was one of the areas where we upped our game at the weekend across the whole team,” he added. “We were a bit more physical and put that bit more effort into the defence and it seemed to work.

“We will need to do that again on Saturday.”
