SAINTS skipper James Roby rued the little areas and errors that scuppered their Challenge Cup hopes for another year.

Saints lost to cup holders Warrington after a lapse just before the break left them a hill to climb in the second half.

Having done that, with it being game back on, Saints were sunk by a Josh Charnley try that was given despite going forward off the head of Warrington centre Anthony Gelling.

Roby said: "We played well in parts of the game, but there were a few little areas that let us down.

"Warrington are a team that are very opportunistic and if you give them an opportunity they will take it.

"We were guilty of that in the first half and had a job to do second half, we did well to claw it back."

Saints were ultimately sunk by that that second Charnley try from the Gelling header, a decision that baffled Roby.

"I was surprised he took it to the screen," he said.

"It has hit Gelling and gone forward so its either a forward pass or offside.

"But it is what it is, we can't blame the defeat one decision - we could have done better as a team.

"There were a few bits where we were a tiny bit off it - myself included."

Saints have a blank weekend now, as they were due to play Toronto, but their focus now will switch entirely to retaining their Super League crown.

"It's all on Super League now - that is our only aim going forward.

"The games will come thick and fast and the end of the season will be upon us.

"We have to dust ourselves down and right some wrongs in the Super League," he said.
