SAINTS boss Justin Holbrook was pleased with his side’s overall performance in the 30-4 victory over Salford.
SAINTS won a feisty encounter at Salford to put themselves in a very strong position to take a semi final spot. They defeated Salford with a five-try display, but it was never an easy evening. They were helped along the way by the sending off of Ryan Lannon for his high, late hit on Theo Fages. Tempers had already frayed when Alex Walmsley has floored Jordan Walne with his fend. Walmsley was put on report, and stayed around to score two tries. Mark Percival, Zeb Taia and Ben Barba scored the others. It leaves Wigan needing to win by 90 plus points at Wakefield on Saturday to knock Saints out.
