Saints Set For Robins Challenge

After progression to the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup Semi Final was confirmed, Saints return to the Betfred Super League when they host Hull KR this Friday.

Justin Holbrook’s side will be looking to consolidate their top of the table position – and record a double over the Robins for the second time in three seasons.

But the head coach says Saints will have to make sure they are “good to go” if they want to secure two points.

“It’s good to know we are in the semi-finals after a tough win on Sunday,” he said. “As I said after the game, you could see why Hull FC have won it for the last two years. We couldn’t get clear and they kept on coming.

“In the end we held on. I’m still a relieved man – I’ve watched it again and it was a great game!

“It was fast, tough and had some good tries too.

“We move on now and have to get our head around playing this Friday. Hull KR are capable of playing really well as we have seen over recent weeks.

“They have been up and down this year through injury and things like that but beat Wigan two weeks ago. We will have to make sure we are ready to go on Friday.”

He continued: “We have a healthy squad to pick from but won’t know more until later in the week. There are some sore bodies from Sunday but I won’t change things for the sake of it.

“Like with Tommy Makinson a couple of weeks ago, if anyone isn’t 100 per cent I will rest them. Players play rugby league because they like playing it – so they might as well get out and play!”

Tickets for Friday’s game, which kicks off at 8pm at the Totally Wicked Stadium are now on sale from the Ticket Office, by calling 01744 455 052 or online here.
