Brown: Learn Lessons

NATHAN Brown hopes Saints will learn the lessons of Friday night’s defeat to Warrington Wolves.

His side got off to the worst possible start before fighting back and getting themselves in a position to do well in the contest.

“Physically we weren’t in it at the beginning, they were very good and they started well with a lot of intent with and without the ball,” he said. “When they are on the up they play chicken on the advantage line and we were the chickens tonight.

“They chance their arm, get the bounces and get the possession. But when we started to aim up in defence and got the ball we won some field position and executed some decent plays.

“I know we have James Roby back next week but it doesn’t matter who is in the team, we need to come up physically.

“The thing I have always liked about Warrington is they defend well. They attack with their defence and are the only side in the comp that can do it for a sustained period. You need to be good in those periods and for 20 minutes we didn’t go with them.”

He continued: “There is some good to come out of the game with how we played in the second half, but we have to learn the lessons from not starting with the right intensity.

“We eventually did adjust our intensity and got back in the contest. We had opportunities but that can’t excuse how we started. When we got the physicality right we showed what we could do.”
