NATHAN Brown was pleased with his side’s performance as Saints returned to the top of the First Utility Super League table.
Mark Percival and Paul Wellens each grabbed a brace in a 38-16 win.
“We’re happy with the performance,” he said. “We surrendered a couple of tries in the final few minutes but for 75 minutes we were by far the most dominant side on the field.
“The whole 17 contributed to the performance. Willie Manu played his second game for about 10 weeks as did Mark Percival and they both improved. We had three kids out there who are just 19 too. Greg Richards was sensational – Andre Savelio and Luke Thompson did a great job as well.
“They did that against seasoned professionals and I’m proud of how they held themselves.
“Paul Wellens was super. The way he played he obviously contributed but his effect on his teammates is probably even better than the way he plays.”
He continued: “We are looking forward to playing Wigan. They got the chocolates on Good Friday but we’re back on top and we want to put in a good performance. We don’t want to do there and surrender meekly, we want to play well and maintain a good position.”
Brown said that Alex Walmsley will return from his suspension next week and Richard Beaumont will play his first game too – likely on dual registration.
Kyle Amor and Anthony Laffranchi are also improving.
