JORDAN Turner says the mood in the camp is still positive and optimistic despite the loss on Sunday.
Saints face Bradford tonight (8pm) aiming to get back on the horse – and remain top of the First Utility Super League table.
“We didn’t expect a performance like that,” he said. “But the mood is still optimistic as we are in a good spot. We have to eradicate bad performances like that.
“We are disappointed we aren’t further forward in the table, but compared to last year we are in a much better spot. We know where we went wrong and we can’t wait to put it right this week.
“It won’t be an easy game this week though; Bradford are fighting for their lives and the players are fighting for a job next year. James Lowes is a good coach and will get the most out of his players.”
He continues: “We have done a lot of soul-searching this week as we did after Catalan. It’s simple, we have to back up with a performance and then not take a step backwards.
“We weren’t good enough on Sunday but we remain positive.”
