Warrington trio Brett Hodgson, Lee Briers and Ben Westwood earned the plaudits from coach Tony Smith after the 22-12 victory at St Helens.

Former Saints stand-off Briers tormented his old club with a superb kicking game, Hodgson scored the first of his side's four tries and kicked three goals and England forward Ben Westwood put in a tireless display in the pack.

And having seen his side record a fifth successive win to move to within three of leaders Wigan, Smith was full of praise for the trio.

"I thought Lee controlled the game brilliantly, particularly in the second half," Smith said.

"He was very, very good. His kicking game was exceptional. He just picked out the right sort of kick at the right time.

"Hodgo was very good at the back, he was terrific, and got the man of the match but I thought Benny Westwood was unbelievable.

Pleased

"I had to take him off, I was getting tired of watching him, he was doing so much.

"I'm pleased with most aspects of it. I thought we were pretty good in our attack - we carried out a plan fairly well - and defensively we very good."

Saints caretaker coach Mike Rush was left to rue a disappointing second-half display from his side.

He said: "I thought our effort was good. I couldn't fault the boys defensively. They really dug in in that first half when we had no possession.

"In the second half we were disappointing. We came up with errors and gave penalties away on tackle four. We can't keep giving penalties away against good teams on play four because you will get punished and tonight we got punished."
