Holbrook Proud Of Derby Win

Justin Holbrook said he was proud of his Saints as they beat Wigan 21-18 on Good Friday.

“It was a fantastic game of rugby league,” he said. “I saw some highlights of the Grand Final clashes over the years in the build up and it delivered for us again.

“For us to come through and win, it was great. Some people pointed out we hadn’t won one in eight years so to win today was great for the players, club, the fans and town. I was very proud to watch the boys win today.

“Both teams were run off their feet and we just hung on in there. It is hard to single anyone out and there were lots of good performances. It was a cracking game.”

He continued: “Towards the back end of the game you could see both teams were out but I thought there was another try in the game. I was really happy with the play – Ryan Morgan made a break down the right to start it off and I think for their instinct to just say play was the right decision.

“We missed a couple of chances but to their credit Wigan scrambled well.

“I have been proud of the boys all season so for Wigan to get their noses in front and for us to stick to it and come through is great.”

Saints are next in action on Monday when they travel to Widnes (3:05pm) before they host Hull FC on April 6.

Tickets for that clash are now on sale from the Ticket Office at the Totally Wicked Stadium, by calling 01744 455 052 or online here.
