St Helens acting head coach Mike Rush was delighted with his side's second-half points spree as they came from behind to beat the Reds 32-10 at the City of Salford Stadium.

"You can't underestimate those conditions," said Rush. "They were horrendous.

"We have been working on putting pressure on them by sticking the ball in the air. It's not by fluke, it's by practice.

"We were a little bit frustrated with the first half and the way we went about things, coming with some errors in yardage and giving penalties away but in the second half I thought we picked up.

"We're really pleased we got two points. There are a lot of positive points we can take away.

"We spoke at half-time about knowing we could win the game. We just had to do the things that we do well.

"We got into the grind and won that battle for territory and, when we got the chance to post some points, we took them."

Effort

Salford had also let slip a 10-0 lead in the earlier game at St Helens, but coach Phil Veivers was pleased with his players' effort.

"We were in the game right to the end," he said. "I thought we defended pretty good for the majority of the game.

"We had one clock-off for Lance Hohaia's try, the rest were kick-tries and it's obviously something we have to work on.

"It's tough enough to catch a ball in normal conditions with people running at you without the wind that was out there.

"I'm disappointed for a lot of the guys in the dressing room. They didn't deserve the blowout in the scoreline. The game was a lot closer than the scoreline suggested."
