SAINTS boss Justin Holbrook was delighted with his side after they saw off Hull to confirm that they will start the Super 8s in top spot, and as an added bonus collected the Steve Prescott Cup.

Saints fought back from 18-10 down to take the spoils.

Holbrook said: “We always knew it would be a tough game and we did really well to lead at half time.

“We were in a tough spot in the second half but to the players’ credit they dug deep, turned it around and came away with a good win.

“We are obviously playing well with where we sit and we’re playing for the full 80.

"We stuck in there and got some opportunities. When we did we were good enough to take them and it was great to watch.

“It was a good win in the end.”

Jonny Lomax scored twice and had another fine game - and was singled out for praise by the Saints boss.

Holbrook said: “He has been fantastic for the last five or six weeks. He plays well whether he is at six or at one and he did that again tonight.

“We’re happy with where we sit, are playing well and we want to keep it that way.

"But we know there is a long way to go.”
