Makinson: We Have To Respond

Tommy Makinson is looking for Saints to respond this week after Sunday’s narrow loss at Wakefield.

The winger scored another spectacular try in game but it wasn’t enough as Trinity sealed a 24-20 win.

“Even though we scored early we started slowly,” he said. “Credit to Wakefield, they capitalised on that and played well. It is always a big atmosphere at Wakefield and a tough game so you can’t start poorly and expect a result.

“Most of the things we did were poor; our defence, discipline and ball control. You can’t win games if you can’t keep hold of the ball and on the back of that the ruck was too quick.

“It all goes into one and you end up on the back foot.

“Credit to the boys as we came back and didn’t want half time to come as we were on a nice roll, but Wakefield deserved it.”

He continued: “We now have to get back into training and put things right. We didn’t play well and that is on ourselves. Everyone wants to respond well after a loss and Huddersfield will be the same.

“Justin will have us firing as we look to improve and bounce back this week. The Giants are a quality side so we have to be on it.”

Saints host Huddersfield Giants this Friday April 20 at the Totally Wicked Stadium.
