Description: Saints staged their most remarkable comeback since the Millward era with three late tries and a 50 metre Matty Smith drop goal winning it on the hooter.

Saints wary of threat posed by on-song Salford Red Devils
Description: SAINTS will be looking to see off an on-song Salford side who will be looking to complete the double and claim a victory on St Helens soil for the first time since 1980. Saints boss Justin Holbrook knows the threats, but is hopeful that the kick up the backside from last week, the good home form and the boost with the arrival of Ben Barba, albeit not currently in a playing capacity, will be the tonic they need. Holbrook said: ?We love playing at home. It is a great stadium and fanbase. ?I am looking forward to Friday. ?Salford areplaying well,they have a good back row, who are running hard and Michael Dobson and Robert Lui are playing well in the halves. ?If you are keeping Todd Carney on the bench they must be doing a good job. ?They are playing well as a team and coming off the back of a good Challenge Cup win. ?But we need to get our own game in order. ?We need to keep up our defence and ask some questions ourselves. ?It is probably better for us to play four of the five top sides now.  more...

Final score: Huddersfield 24 Saints 16
Description: SAINTS' top four hopes suffered a massive blow with a 24-16 loss at Huddersfield. Once again they were the architects of their own downfall with some shocking early ball control. Too many dropped balls in the first half handed the Giant the initiative and they responded with tries from Leroy Cudjoe and Martyn Ridyard. It could have been worse, with Saints' inability to complete a set putting themselves under too much pressure. Somewhat against the run of play a super break from Morgan Knowles fashioned a try for the supporting Luke Thompson just before the break. And Saints were first on the scoresheet after the interval when nice hands from Zeb Taia and Jonny Lomax fashioned the chance for Mark Percival to dash over. But an Adam O'Brien try from close range restored Giants' eight-point cushion. Saints, now that they were holding the ball, played some better football. And they were rewarded for their pressure when Kyle Amor forced his way over. Saints chased the game and the next score was going to be the killer - alas it went to old boy Lee Gaskell. Saints came up short - and that is another damaging away loss that exposed some frailties in the side. No team can afford to be coughing up so much ball and expect to win. Although they sorted that in the second half, the damage had been done.   more...
