St Helens acting coach Mike Rush was full of praise for Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook after his display against the London Broncos.

The forward came off the bench to inspire Saints to a 30-0 defeat of his former club, a result that pushes them a step closer to clinching a top-four finish ahead of the play-offs.

Skipper Paul Wellens and Mark Flanagan each scored two tries for Saints, with their other touchdowns coming from Tony Puletua and Anthony Laffranchi.

"Louie was my man of the match and produced plenty of energy against his old team," Rush said.

"He has great speed for a front rower. At times he chances his arm with offloads but he was outstanding tonight.

"Mark Flanagan also had his best game for the club and Paul Wellens was rewarded for his support play with two tries. He must only be a year off 40 but is still punishing them.

"There were 25 penalties in the game and that's a lot to cope with."

London boss Tony Rea, whose side had won their previous three matches, was understandably disappointed by his team's failure to trouble the scoreboard.

Rea said: "We played like a collection of individuals at times and that was reflected in the final scoreline.

"Kieran Dixon tried his heart out but there are highs and lows in all games. We had too many lows tonight."
