Thompson Pleased With Three From Three

Luke Thompson was pleased to come out of the Easter period with three wins but knows Saints need to keep their focus if they want to be successful this season.

The prop forward has been stellar so far this year and was at the hub of a pack that secured six points.

“Before this period, we said we would focus on each game as it came, so to get three out of three was really good,” he said. “Friday’s game was a tough one. Hull are a great team and have some big lads – the likes of Scott Taylor and Chris Green. The plan was to take it down the middle, get on top of them and we did just that.

“It’s been a tough period but the wins make you feel better.”

Thommo was also keen to praise the contribution of the backs in the victories over Wigan, Widnes and Hull FC.

“Tommy (Makinson) has been doing a great job for a number of weeks,” he continued: “It is great when you turn around and see him getting us on the front foot. Regan (Grace) does the same as does Jonny Lomax too. We then come off the back of that.

“We have a few days off now and that is important. We will get our feet up and charge the batteries.

“Then it is on to Wakefield on Sunday. We will assess them when we get back, train hard and then go again.”
