Holbrook: Came Through Tough Spot

Justin Holbrook was pleased with Saints fightback as they came from behind to beat Hull FC on Friday night.

His side reversed an 18-10 deficit with four tries in 15 minutes to win 34-18 and take home the Steve Prescott Cup.

“We always knew it would be a tough game and we did really well to lead at half time,” he said. “We were in a tough spot in the second half but to the players’ credit they dug deep, turned it around and came away with a good win.

“We are obviously playing well with where we sit and we’re playing for the full 80. We stuck in there and got some opportunities. When we did we were good enough to take them and it was great to watch.

“It was a good win in the end.”

Jonny Lomax scored a brace in the victory and Holbrook said he was the difference.

He continued: “He has been fantastic for the last five or six weeks. He plays well whether he is at six or at one and he did that again tonight.

“We’re happy with where we sit, are playing well and we want to keep it that way. But we know there is a long way to go.”
