Saints Up For Wildcats

SAINTS aim to continue their winning ways this Friday when they host Wakefield Wildcats at Langtree Park.

So far Keiron Cunningham’s side have taken home the spoils in three of their four opening First Utility Super League fixtures.

And fresh from their 28-22 decision over Castleford – with former Wildcat Kyle Amor (pictured) the pick of the forwards, they’ll head into the match full of confidence.

“I was happy with how we went on Friday,” Cunningham said. “There’s plenty of improvement in us for sure and we are working hard in training.

“You can only play what’s in front of you and the conditions but we are beginning to pick up some nice points along the way.”

Wakefield have one win in their five matches to date – but almost pulled off a remarkable comeback at home to Catalan on Sunday.

Down 26-0 they rallied for 26-22 before the Dragons won 42-28.

Coach Brian Smith said: “I was very disappointed with our defensive performance in the first half and, when we got ourselves back in the game, we let ourselves down with defensive problems.

“If you concede 42 points you are not going to win. That part was very disappointing, generally we’re better than that.

“The boys were still putting in at the end but you get no medals for trying. In professional sport you’ve got to be better than that.

“We’ve got to learn how to go with the opposition early doors in games. The opening part of the game is vital so it’s back to the drawing board for us.”
