KC Praises Resolve

KEIRON Cunningham praised Saints resolve and attitude in their 20-16 win over Wakefield.

“We came through a lot of adversity,” he said. “You can’t practice what we did out there; you just put your faith in a group of players to do their best and they genuinely gave me all they could. Today they showed what they are made of.

“Our middles were phenomenal. We had one sub in Lance Hohaia and we did all we could to save him up and roll the middle players. Alex Walmsley was superb; Atelea Vea came of age too. He is a superstar in the making and will be a good Saints player for a long time.

“I could name more though. They showed what it meant to them and I’m really proud of what they did. They worked for each other.”

He continued: “I have been involved in wins that come with adversity. They sometimes are your best ones and I said that half time that we would remember when and where these two points came from. These could be the ones that could get you to a particular finishing place. It was a massive victory for us.

“It’s been a good start to the season. We spoke about starting big because of the new system and we have done that. I would prefer more performances like Salford away but I am more than happy with what they are doing.”

Jonny Lomax and Mark Percival will be assessed for leg injuries over the weekend whilst Luke Thompson has concussion.
