DESPITE last Sunday’s heavy defeat at Salford, Saints are still four points clear at the Super League summit with six regular rounds to play.

Coach Kristian Woolf’s sights are fixed firmly on securing a top two finish – preferably winning the League Leaders – to give themselves the best position to reach Old Trafford on 24 September.

They are seven points clear of third-placed Huddersfield.

The three-peat champions are seeking an unprecedented four Super League titles in a row.
