Holbrook Pleased With Response

Justin Holbrook said Saints responded well to record a 30-6 win over Hull KR on Friday night.

“We were disappointing last week so tonight was all about how we responded as a team,” he said. “I thought we saw that. We saw how well Hull KR won last week and we knew they hadn’t played a home for a while. We knew it would be tough and I thought we handled it well. It was a pleasing win.

“Our defence has been good every week, apart from last week. It’s really pleasing to see the boys get that right tonight.

“In attack I thought we were a lot more settled too. We have been a little bit lost over the last couple of weeks so it was good to see it come together tonight.”

He continued: “I thought our forwards really stood up and that helped the likes of Ben Barba play off the back of them. Luke Douglas, Luke Thompson, Kyle Amor and LMS; I thought they were outstanding.”

Holbrook confirmed that Adam Swift has a shoulder injury and it will be assessed during the week.
