Walsh Focused On Widnes Test

SAINTS face two teams in their final couple of First Utility Super League Super 8s fixtures that cannot make the top four.

They travel to Widnes Vikings this Sunday (Sept 18) before hosting Wakefield Wildcats five days later (Sept 23).

But according to Luke Walsh this isn’t a time to be resting players and having one eye on the semi-finals.

“We won’t be resting players, getting the team on the park and getting those combinations right is very important,” the scrum half said. “Widnes are a good team. We have to go there with the right attitude because it will be a tough game.

“We know they can’t make the top four but we can only worry about our own game. We dropped a lot of ball on Friday and we have to fix that up in training. We can’t give them too much ball because if they do, they will kill us.

“We also have to start well too. We haven’t done that in our last four weeks and we have to do that at Widnes.

“We won’t look too far ahead; we are playing well enough so wherever we finish will take care of itself.”

Luke returned to action in the win over Castleford last Thursday following a two-game suspension.

He had a hand in most of Saints’ seven tries and kicked five goals.

“It was a bit scrappy but it was an important two points and that is all that matters,” he continued. “Cas are one of those teams that like to throw the ball around.

“We knew we had to build our game on defence and for most of the game we did that.”
