YOU must know by now my mate Paul Wellens is something of a perfectionist!

I knew as soon as he was interviewed post game he would be filthy with conceding a last-minute try against the London Broncos.

Despite scoring 52 unanswered points in the first 79 mins, Wello admitted the final try of the game ‘stung’.

That is the expectations of a club like St Helens, and it will no doubt be something mentioned in the video room this week, albeit certainly not dwelled on.

For most of the match on Sunday, back at the Broncos spiritual home, The Stoop it was a pretty professional performance from the Saints.

It was great to see over 5000 fans turn out for the game too - the biggest crowd the home side have had in over 14 years.

It was never going to be a classic, with such a vast difference in quality, with the Betfred Super League’s top team vs bottom.

That was very quickly evident with a Waqa Blake double in the first 15 minutes.

The guy who created both of these tries, later scored one and went on to receive the Betfred Man of the Match, was Moses Mbye.

Playing at stand-off in place of injured skipper Jonny Lomax, Mbye yet again showed his quality. His coach Wellens said it was his best performance in the Red V to date.

To be honest, I think Saints best performances on attack have been when Moses has been at the heart of things…be it filling in for Lewis Dodd or more recently Lomax. And for me would be staying there.

He came to the UK with a big reputation from the NRL, and I think he's really settled in and enjoying his football.

These games can be mentally challenging for players, especially when it was quickly established that you are going to win convincingly - and the challenge is being clinical and not losing the standards of your performance.

It can be easy to force passes that you wouldn’t usually throw and at times this happened.

However, there was plenty of quality shown, especially after the break with hooker Daryl Clark scoring an eight minute hat-trick. Loose forward James Bell was in fine form too, running the Broncos defence ragged, creating numerous tries, including two of Clarky's.

Other notable performance were no nonsense young prop George Delaney, back rower Sione Mata'utia, and a special mention for Mark Percival who was deadly with the boot, kicking eight from nine.

This weekend's fixture is certainly going to be a far tougher task, as we face the high-flying Salford Red Devils at the AJ Bell Stadium.

Paul Rowley’s men come into the game on the back of a dominant win against the Warrington Wolves, and will be looking to improve on their current top half place in the Betfred Super League table.

Half back Mark Sneyd is playing some of the best rugby of his career, and someone the Saints defence will have to put under pressure. The rejuvenated Kallum Watkins is also a player in great form.

I do believe this will be a close game, but am backing the visitors to take the two points with a win by more than ten points (7/4 at Betfred) and therefore remain in top spot.

After just over half way through the season, unsurprisingly it’s Saints and Wigan that lead the way.

Two teams who on recent form can certainly not be ignored are the Red Devils and third-placed Hull KR.

In the meantime the Wire seem to have fallen off a cliff, losing their last three games in all competitions.

Title sponsors Betfred still suggest the current Champions Wigan will retain the trophy come the Grand Final on October 12, as 4/5 favourites.

Saints remain at 5/2 with Wire at 9/1 followed by Hull KR at 10/1, Catalans at 14/1 while Salford are priced at 50/1.
