JONNY Lomax grabbed a hat-trick as 12-try Saints defeated Huddersfield 66-4. They bossed the show from the off and got back on the horse in the ideal way after last weekend's blip. Lomax started the scoring - and Ben Barba added a dazzling score from long range to double the lead. Loma annd Barba added their seconds, with one from Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook sandwiched between them in the one-way traffic. The Londoner collected Fages' pass for his second to push Saints to a 34-0 lead at half time. Second half was more of the same, with Barba fashioning two for Ryan Morgan. Although ex-Saint Jordan Turner pegged back a consolation, normal service was soon resumed. Danny Richardson darted through for a well-taken score to regain the Saints ascendancy. And there was time for a florish, with Lomax's hat-trick, created by Barba, followed by a sizzler from Regan Grace. Prop Kyle Amor charged over for Saints' 12th and final one. A job well done.
