KEIRON Cunningham was pleased to get the win on Friday but admitted it was a little on the “ugly” side.
Saints ran in seven tries to beat London 38-10 and consolidate fifth spot in Super League.
“It was good,” the Club’s Assistant Coach said. “From my playing days if you win ugly you win ugly and it is two points. That’s a few games in a row for us now.
“The boys are a little disappointed with the second half. It has been a shortish week with Catalan and travelling and we have hardly been on the training field. These aren’t excuses; we are pleased with the victory and we roll on again.
“We spoke at half time about how well we were rumbling on but you have to give London credit with what they are going through. Tony Rea is doing a good job there and they hung on in there after coming to us with injuries on top of that turmoil.”
He continued: “We were patient to build a lead. We have been guilty this year of not starting very well and we are trying hard to alter that. The boys’ confidence is getting there and starting well is something we are now doing. We pride ourselves on our start and we started well in the second half too.
“Greg Richards, Alex Walmsley, Anthony Walker and Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook were outstanding tonight and the first three are kids who will be all the better for season we’ve had. We’re pleased with them.
“Team spirit doesn’t come overnight and there has been a lot of heartache and pain this year. It is something you have to build on and we have found that. We are in a good space at the moment and going well.
“We are working hard in training but it certainly helps when you have key people on the field.”
