KC Seeking Consistency

KEIRON Cunningham says Saints need to focus on their consistency if they are to back up their performances in recent weeks.

Wins over Widnes and Warrington have followed the Good Friday defeat to Wigan – and they sandwiched a heart-breaking one-point loss to Hull FC.

“We did well on Friday and it comes up even better on the video too,” he said. “Warrington are a very good side but we aren’t a bad side ourselves. To do it in the style we did with the amount of players we had missing made it all the more sweeter.

“There are plenty of tough games coming up so it was a good two points for us. The comp is very even and we desperately needed them.

“We are in a results based industry and to be where you want to be as a club you need to pick points up. I’m more about performances as if you play well then you tend to get the win and the points. If you play the way you want to and are consistent then generally the end product is the result.

“We have performed well in our last three games and worked hard for each other. The end result was on Friday against Warrington.

“I don’t think we are in a bad spot. The Salford performance is one to look at, of course, and I felt we let ourselves down with our preparation. We lost to Hull by a point and we should have won at Leeds. If you win those two games you’re sat pretty near the top of the table and you’re not talking about a crisis.

“We’re not doing too badly, but we need to keep up the momentum and work hard. We have two tough home games coming up and then we go into a tough tie at Castleford.

“Consistency is the biggest key for us. We need to focus on what we can have a bearing on – and that is the performance. If we do that then it tends to brings results.”

Catalans head to Langtree Park having won seven of their last eight games.

That’s seen them rise to second in the First Utility Super League table.

“Catalans are going really well,” Keiron continued. “They have spent a lot of money on quality players. I know we have heard that before and they haven’t lived up to that promise but you can’t sign those players and not do well.

“It will be a tough game for us but we will head in confident. We have played some good stuff and are being hard-nosed too. It is tough to play against teams that do that. We’re not going to make it walk in the park for them, we will make a tough day of it.

“Jon Wilkin will need to pass all the tests before he can play and there is a possibility we could get Lama Tasi back too. It isn’t a great situation but that is nothing new for us. We will fight hard for each other and the kids did us proud on Friday.

“Other players are a few weeks away from returning.”

Saints are next in action this coming Thursday April 14 at Langtree Park when they host Catalan Dragons.
