Brown: Best Of Season

NATHAN Brown said the win over Catalan was their best of the season considering the number of disruptions they suffered.

Saints lost three players – Jordan Turner, Luke Walsh and Sia Soliola – as they recorded their fifth victory of the year.

“I’m happy with the result,” Brown said. “The boys did great to hang on in there with the injuries and resultant disruptions. We had one bloke coming off the bench for all the second half and blokes out of position too. To hang in there was brilliant.

“At 24-0 we were coasting and looking good and then they scored. I was disappointed with their second try though, we shouldn’t let a hooker do that.

“We got off to a reasonable start in the second half but had a lot of players in different positions. We had to work hard and middle did well defensively. Whenever we got an opportunity we scored or had one disallowed so our execution was good.

“It was our best win of the year and it’s a good sign the boys can hang in there.”

Saints suffered three blows in the match and although Brown could confirm the nature of the injuries suffered, he wouldn’t speculate on timescales.

“Jordan Turner has a hamstring problem, Luke Walsh is a calf and Sia has an issue with his knee. I don’t think his will be long term.

“Walsh and Turner’s are muscle injuries and I can’t guess on the length of time out. We will know more next week.

“Both are hard to replace but Jon Wilkin took us to one point against a good Leeds team and he can slot in and do a job. We will head over to Wakefield and put a side together that we expect to play well.”
