Justin Holbrook said Saints came up with ‘dumb things’ during their Betfred Super League clash with Huddersfield.
“We had another great week of training and had been playing well but things didn’t go our way pretty much straight away again,” he said. “It was similar to last week. We did some dumb things, took poor options and put ourselves under pressure.
“Last week we were good enough to get out of it and this week we weren’t.
“Take nothing away from Huddersfield. They ran harder, tackled harder and did everything better than us tonight.
“Basic errors are hurting us the most. We got away with it last week – but we can’t continuously do that and expect to win games. And we didn’t deserve to win tonight.
“To take a positive, to only be six down at half time was good and to score early in the second half showed some great character from some players.
“But we weren’t good enough in the back half of that game because we burned a lot of energy in the first half. It came back and bit us late.
“We are trying hard as a group but we have to learn to be a lot smarter.”
Ryan Morgan (pictured) will have a knee injury assessed over the next couple of days with Holbrook saying it doesn’t look great for the centre.
