OUR mercurial number 9 wants Saints to carry on where they left off when they travel to Castleford this week.
James Roby says the second half performance against Wigan was right up there – and that needs to be emulated for 80 minutes if they want to be successful at the Tigers.
“It was a great result for us and a fantastic night for all the supporters,” he said. “We put in a lot of effort and got the result. It was pleasing to get the win and the added bonus was Leeds losing so we could top the table.
“Our second half was very good. We completed our sets the best we have done for a long time and that helped us build pressure.
“In big games there isn’t a lot in it and luckily we put ourselves in a position to take advantage of mistakes.
“Our kicking game was good and it put Wigan under pressure. If we kept doing that it was inevitable the cracks would show and they did. The attitude of the lads was there for all to see. They were the first to any loose balls and we took our opportunities.
“We were pleased with our second half performance but to carry on we have to emulate that.”
He continued: “Castleford beat Leeds last week so they will come in confident on Thursday. They are a fantastic team, especially at home and probably a few results haven’t gone their way.
“Perhaps they are coming into form at the right time and we have to be ready for that.
“We cannot afford to have any nights off; our attitude has to be spot on.”
