Saints Made “Soft Errors”

KEIRON Cunningham said Saints’ second half performance was ‘soft’ and they were lucky to grab a point against Huddersfield on Friday night.

“At 14-0 I have never seen a more dominate side not score more points,” he said. “The way we just rolled down the field on them went against us at times. We went out to single carries and began not working together. But scored some nice tries and should have scored more points.

“We came out in the second half with a soft mentality. We weren’t disciplined with the ball and didn’t do the things we did in the first half. You have to earn the right in rugby league and we didn’t do that for anything. We made too many soft errors.

“Huddersfield were stinging from the week before and credit to them they fought and came after us at the back end of game.”

He continued: “I was sat 150 metres away from the corner and even I could see he (Wood) knocked the ball on. There are four stood around there and they still can’t get the decision right. It is disappointing the game ends on that, but that is sport.

“The problem was our completion went from 90 per cent to 33 which is disgusting by any standard. But overall our mentality was weak in that second half. It wasn’t good enough because we thought the job had been done. We ended up giving them a sniff at 14-4 but we had enough opportunities to put them to bed.

“It should have never have come down to that final try – it should have been a 40 point game, but we weren’t disciplined enough.

“Every game is massive in this competition, they are all big games. But the team that beats us is usually the team that looks back at us in the mirror.

“Today, of we were professional and disciplined it woulld have been a comfortable night.”
