SAINTS coach Justin Holbrook insists Saints are looking no further than Friday’s game against Hull FC after putting their top four destiny in their own hands.

Holbrook’s men host the Black and Whites following last Thursday’s impressive win over league leaders Castleford which saw them become the first visiting team to topple the Tigers this year.

The victory saw Saints push into the semi-final placings to kick off their Super 8s campaign.

“It was a great win and that’s all you ever want, you want it to be in your control,” said Holbrook.

“I got asked a lot earlier about making the eight and making the four and I said you can only take it a week at a time. I know it’s a cliché, but that’s all you honestly can do.

“I’ve definitely seen an improvement in everything. Our decision making in defence has been really strong and now I think we’re going pretty good with the ball. We’re playing well at the moment and we’ve got to keep it up.

“It’s not just one result we’ve had, we’ve been doing it for a while now, we’ve got some good results in a row but we’re enjoying training and playing every week and when you’ve got that combination right you just look forward to your next game and that’s how you get consistent.

“We want to try and win every game we play and see where it gets us to so I think we’ve been playing well for a while now and last week was another good step in showing that. We just want to keep winning games and see how we are.”

Saints have got the better of Friday’s opponents in their last two meetings, including the 45-0 win at the Magic Weekend immediately after Holbrook’s arrival.

But the Saints coach expects no easy task against the Wembley finalists who beat Salford in their first Super 8s match.

“Hull are a good side and having Gareth Ellis back stiffens them up in the forwards. It’ll be a good tough game for us.

“They’re in the Challenge Cup final and playing really well and winning a lot of games, we know how dangerous a side they are so we’ll be preparing for a hard game.

“It’ll be a very physical game that’s for sure, they’ve got the outside backs to get their sets started and they’ve got creative players as well.

“They’re sitting third because they’re a good side so we’re expecting a really hard game in saying that it’s one we’re looking forward to.

We’re playing good ourselves and we’re putting ourselves in a good position. We’re working hard and enjoying playing.”

“Hopefully we get a good crowd out there and support the boys.”
