NATHAN Brown saluted Saints great first half display after they beat Hull KR 46-10 at Langtree Park.His side scored six first half tries to kill off the Robins’ hopes of a second win in a row in St Helens.“I thought the first half was really pleasing,” he said. “We came here expecting a tough game after the games we’d had with Hull KR but we did really well.“James Roby was great and you can’t put a price on a hooker like that. It is a crucial spot in the team. We started well and our right edge did well. The guys have played with Robes for a long time and work off him. It was his second game back and he could have stayed on until the end.“We are confident heading into next week. We have played some good sides in the last few weeks and had some good results. We can take that into the game next week and we know we can do well.“The players want to do well. They have been in a number of big games over the years and we want to do well to give ourselves a shot at Old Trafford.”Adam Swift scored a hat-trick in the match to take his tally to 13 in 10 games.“He is playing well,” Nathan added. “In fact, both wings are firing well. Frannis Meli is going well at centre, as is Jordan Turner, and they are linking up with Robes too.“It helps that they have pace and there is a lot of speed in that back line. I was also pleased that Jordan Turner was great with the boot tonight.”Ticket details for our match at Leeds next Friday are here.
