Brown Seeks Capital Gains

NATHAN Brown says London will be a tricky proposition when Saints travel to The Hive this Saturday.

Even though the Broncos have been relegated they are a team that “competes hard” for each other and may even “chance their arm more” as they have nothing to lose.

“They have had some performances down there and have pushed Wigan, Warrington and Huddersfield close on their own field,” he said. “They seem to enjoy playing there.

“Joey (Grima) has had one part of his mind on next year and has blooded some youngsters so they are probably in a bit of a transition period too.

“One thing that has stood out though is those guys have kept competing for each other and that is a real credit to Joey and the players themselves.

“It is a tough situation to be in but they are starting to produce players themselves which is important. There are solid foundations there.

“It is still about consistency for us though as we haven’t put in a string of performances together for a while. We need to look at ourselves and look at what sort of team we want to be.”

Saints came through Friday’s win over Bradford with no fresh injury concerns – but are unlikely to welcome back Luke Walsh this week.

“We came through the game pretty sound,” Brown added. “Anthony Laffranchi and Kyle Amor came through well and it was good for them to get a game.

“Luke Walsh will probably miss another week though. Obviously we would like him to play as he’s missed some footy, but he isn’t quite ready at the moment. It will be good to see him back as he’s missed a few games.

“Jon Wilkin has been able to help out there though and that has been pleasing.

“We had some good performances at Rochdale and Whitehaven last weekend too and those players will come into the reckoning. Shannon McDonnell had his first game and will probably need another couple. He will be a handy acquisition for us.”
