Brown Proud Of Effort

NATHAN Brown says if Saints bring the same commitment and effort to the table when the playoffs begin this week then they stand every chance of progressing.

Speaking after the 17-16 loss at Huddersfield he described the defeat as the “best” he’d been involved with in terms of what his 12-men produced.

“It was a superb effort,” he said. “We played for 60 minutes with 12 men and I don’t think anyone would be disappointed in what the guys as a group of players did for the club.

“We all knew where the game was heading at the point [of Alex Walmsley’s sending off]. My view is if Alex’ first point of contact has caught Robbo (Luke Robinson) in the head then it is obviously deserved.

“If he hasn’t made contact with the head and the whiplash motion has made his Robbo’s head hit him then it wasn’t a good decision. I couldn’t tell from where I was sitting.

“Obviously, we would have liked to have got the Shield tonight. The players showed they wanted to do that for the Club and fans and unfortunately it wasn’t to be.

“Either we’ll be first or second and we’ll play next week at Langtree. If we bring the same commitment then we will give ourselves every chance to progress.

“I think people saw tonight who probably deserves to be League Leaders. We have been there from the start and overcome more than most sides with what has gone against us. The effort tonight is one of the season why we are where we are on the table.”

Brown says Matty Dawson was being “checked out” after being stretchered off in the second half of the match.

The winger was suffering numbness in his shoulder which stemmed from his neck.
