SAINTS must put their Challenge Cup dreams to one side when they return to the bread and butter of Super League on Friday in a game that could be a potential banana skin.

After the the hullabaloo and emotion in the quarter-final victory over Hull FC, it is the the team from the other side of the city Saints must turn their attention to.

Getting up for that game after such a physically and mentally draining encounter, is the first task facing the Saints.

Rovers, who had a bad defeat at home to Castleford last week, are no slouches having taken Wigan apart the previous week.

They also have a trio of old boys, spearheaded by Grand Final winner Mose Masoe, but also including Tommy Lee and Adam Quinlan.

Coach Justin Holbrook said: “It is going to be hard because they are a hard-working team.

“Any chance you give them they will be ready to take and that is why we can’t give them any opportunities.

“As they showed against Wigan, they can beat any team on their day.”

Holbrook touched on the difficulties getting back up for a game, against supposedly lower-key opposition, after such a big encounter five days earlier.

“It was a great win on Sunday, but we move on and get ready for Friday.

“We have got to rely on our players having pride in their performance.

“They have done that every week this year and we expect that again this Friday.

“It will be hard mentally to get up for it, but they love playing and that is what we will be relying on,” he said.

Saints: Lomax, Makinson, Morgan, Percival, Fages, Smith, Roby, Amor, Taia, Wilkin, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Douglas, Knowles, Thompson, Peyroux, Richardson, Grace, Lees, Barba.
