Justin Holbrook was pleased with Saints' first pre-season outing after a 28-18 win over Hull FC.
“It was a good game, it was important for us to play well today and I’m happy with how we went, we moved the ball well and we were sharp in attack and defended really well aswell.
“Everyone did well, probably the most important thing other than the new boys was the return of Big Al, it was great to have him back and the way he played was a reminder of what he is capable of, it was a great feeling to see him back and playing well.
“The first 20 mins, the game was end to end and it was what we needed, a good hit out in the build-up to Round 1”
