Saints travelled over to face Hull in this hastily rearranged fixture with a certain degree of trepidation on Sunday.

First game back after a long lay-off and a trip to Hull to boot are important things to consider.

But the young Saints side showed that they have character in abundance in coming away with the victory.

However, if you look at the half time score you’d be forgiven for thinking that I’m talking about a different game with the Saints 18 points down.

But everyone connected with the team were convinced that if they could get the basics right then the score would right itself.

And that’s exactly what they did. They respected possession, gave away less penalties and as a result came away with the spoils with six tries in the final 25 minutes.

The forwards, led by Ethan Caine, Kye Siyani and Jamie Pye continued to plough a furrow down the middle which allowed Lewis Dodd and the substitute pairing of Matty Holland and Harvey McDaid to play.

Brandon Scully and Reece Wilkinson gave able support but the show was stolen by Jumah Sambou and Josh Simm with a brace and hat-trick respectively.
