Saints may have become many pundits' outside tip for a Grand Final appearance following their win over Castleford but James Roby doesn’t want to look too far ahead.
Since Justin Holbrook came in the adage has been to take it game by game.
And it seems to have been working as his side are now in the top four after being written off not too long back.
“We had a great performance against Cas and people have taken note as we are the first team to beat them at home, but it means nothing if we don’t carry it on,” Roby said. “We will keep working hard in training and prepare the best we can. We are slowly improving but there is still a long way to go.
“We will continue to take each game as it comes and if in six or seven weeks down the line we are in the Grand Final we will go for it. I am confident in the ability of this team to go on and win it but I’m sure every team would say the same.
“It’s Super 8s time now and the level will intensify. Hopefully we can use that to our advantage.”
Hull come to the Totally Wicked Stadium this Friday with Saints edging the series between the two sides two to one.
“Hull have a big pack with big outside backs who do damage with early carries in each set, but we just have to concentrate on our own game,” Roby added. “Of course we will have to keep an eye on Danny Houghton and Mark Sneyd who is very creative. We have to work hard for each other, get our game right and bring that work ethic from last week too.
“Hull are in third place and we are neck and neck with them. We haven’t been at home for a few weeks and we want to put on a good show. We want go above them on the table too.
“But it’s about picking up two points as cut off time will come around soon so we need as many as we can get.”
