Holbrook: We Were Scratchy

Justin Holbrook said Saints were scratchy in their win over Salford on Sunday.

His side ran in six tries to defeat the Red Devils and keep up their great start to the season.

“It was a good win but it was a bit of a scratchy performance for most parts,” he said. “I’m pleased we got the win the way we did.

“It took us a long time to settle down and we forced our hand with the ball too, but in the end we found a good balance.

“I thought Benny Barba was outstanding for us, as was Dom Peyroux and Luke Thompson. Those guys stood up. A few of the boys didn’t have their best games, but they know that and you do get it at this time of the year.

“We are hard markers on ourselves and are disappointed but it has been a disruptive week with training and not knowing if the game was on or not. All those factors make it hard.

“I even have to give Benny credit for what he did during the week. If there’s someone who is going to complain about the weather it would be a bloke from North Queensland!

“He has got stuck in and said to the lads what are they complaining about. He’s in a good place at the moment, is enjoying training, and it is showing on the field.

“It’s good to have him here.”

Saints are next in action when they travel to Warrington this Friday.
