Justin Holbrook was happy Saints returned to winning ways as they beat Wakefield 36-16 on Thursday night.
“It was a really pleasing result,” he said. “We knew how hard it was going to be coming here so to come away with a good win was very pleasing.
“It was a good start to the game by both sides and there wasn’t much in it. To go in at half time leading 16-0 was fantastic. It was important for us to start well as we haven’t done that over recent weeks and it has made it hard for us.
“It was good to get some concentration back and be ready to play. To Wakefield’s credit they made it hard for us but in the end I was pleased to come away with a good win.”
He continued: “Tommy Makinson took his finishes well and with Luke Thompson out it was good to see us come up well against a team the size of Wakefield.
“Our defence showed some character too and I was really happy defensively, particularly in that first half.”
Saints next Super 8s fixture sees them host Wigan Warriors on Friday August 31.
