AND then there was two!

That’s teams with 100 per cent winning record in the Betfred Super League, following Warrington’s narrowest of defeats against the Catalan Dragons in the south of France.

So just Saints and Castleford share top spot on the league table.

Although all is going to plan for Saints at this early stage of the season - nothing should be taken for granted.

That’s something the Wigan Warriors found out to their cost last weekend as they went down to SL new boys the London Broncos.

The Warriors who are languishing second from bottom, and still pointless following only one win but a two-point deduction for salary cap breach, suffered an 18-16 defeat in the capital.

Whoever the wins comes against I’m sure I’m not on my own in taking pleasure seeing a competitive Broncos side. Clear favourites with Betfred at the start of the season to face relegation back to the Championship, you have to give credit to the players and Young English coaches Danny Ward and Jamie Langley for London’s performances so far.

No doubts nobody is more aware of this than Saints gaffer Justin Holbrook as we prepare to host the Broncos this Friday at the TWS. This comes 24 hours after our nearest challengers Warrington and Castleford slug it out for two points. I’m predicting a Warrington bounce back with a closely fought four-point win over the undefeated Tigers (4/6 at Betfred).

As for Saints-London, if things go to plan, I’m going for a Saints win by 20,which is also 4/6 with our title sponsors Betfred.

One generous offering is the first try-scorer to be our skipper James Roby at 20/1. Following his two-try, standard outstanding performance against Salford last week this might be worth a punt!

Robes is again leading the way with his man of the match performances of late.

Not only his try scoring exploits but the amount of work he gets through in a game is phenomenal. His second try just about summed him up...following a virtual full length break from Tommy Makinson, who was the second in support popping up on the right edge to secure the win…yes you’ve guessed it that man Roby!

He continues to lead the race for the Steve Prescott MBE Man of Steel, racking up an incredible 11 points from a possible 12 in the opening four rounds.

Along with Robes’ performance, Justin was delighted with the team effort, especially the defence. Leaking just the one try, and missing just seven tackles in total compared to the Red Devils’ 25. It was a dominant performance from the Saints at a very wet AJ Bell stadium. They controlled the game from start to finish. Let’s hope for more of the same this Friday!
