Youngsters Progress

JAMAHL Lolesi has been reflecting on a busy Easter period and the positives that can be gained.

Saints blooded a number of youngsters over the last three matches and the Club’s Assistant Coach says they will be better for the experience of three games in nine days.

“Easter was tough with the number of players we have and we were happy with the effort but at times our execution was poor,” he said. “We have to look to the next match now – that is important.

“It’s always tough going to Hull KR and getting them after their defeat to Wigan wasn’t good for us. We had a lot of tired bodies but the younger players will benefit from that period.

“That is a positive we have to take; it tested our depth and the youngsters we have. It is credit to the Saints junior academy system that these players are ready to come through and ready to play Super League. It is the best set up I have seen and holds us in great stead for the future.

“It is a big game for us on Friday, they are a great side, their coach has done well and they have a lot of talent. Scott Dureau, Zeb Taia, Leon Pryce, they are hard to handle players.

“It’s all about what we have to do as a group though. The young kids have learnt a lot – that has been forced on them really – and we are happy with what they have tossed up. They will try their hearts out that is what they always do.”

He continued: “I’m really enjoying my time at Saints, it’s fantastic. I was told by a good friend what it was like here but I have been overwhelmed by the support. We’re still learning about the players and the fans have been understanding. I am really enjoying it.”
