KEIRON Cunningham says although Saints produced a barnstorming finish Hull KR were more than worthy winners on Friday night.
His side pulled it back to 24-22 but ultimately couldn’t grab a point.
“They deserved to win the game I thought and a draw would probably have been a disservice to them,” he said. “They were super in the second half.
“We gifted them three tries in the first but all credit to by boys, they took it to the end and made it interesting.
“We were getting down their end of the field comfortably but our execution was really poor.”
He continued: “James Roby had a concussion and will have a head test in the week. We can’t lay the blame on injuries or those coming off the field. Hull took their chances and we didn’t. We made for an interesting finish but the best team won on the night.
“The boys prepared well; we were ready for it. We started the game well and I was justified in my thoughts that we would do well. I have no concerns about next week; we will patch our team together and go again.
“Eventually that loss comes closer the longer you keep on winning and we have to be proud of what we have done in the last six weeks. That game was there for the taking though and we didn’t capitalise on that. We live and learn and move on.”
