Brown: Below Our Best

NATHAN Brown said a number of Saints were way below their best in their loss to Warrington last night.

His side were downed 39-12 which leaves them still needing a point in their last game over in Huddersfield to secure the League Leaders Shield.

“We had a number of players below their best, unfortunately, and collectively a number of players who would say they had their worst games of the season,” he said. “We’re in a state at the moment where we cannot afford to carry people and there has to be all hands on deck.

“Warrington did a number on us through their sheer weight of possession.

“We had five or six play one errors from the back three and when you do that you cannot do well in the contest. We took dummies several times too and when that happens it shows we aren’t on your game.”

He continued: “We have recovered from losses well before. After a loss we generally come back and put in a consistent performance. We are still getting used to new combinations but we need to defend with commitment and limit the errors against the good teams.

“As a whole I am proud of what the guys have delivered this year in adversity. We have to dust ourselves off and go again.”

Unfortunately, Shannon McDonnell broke his jaw in the match.
