Super League: Nathan Brown happy to get St Helens' first home win on the board
When it really mattered we did well. Just after half-time they had 34 tackles in a row on our try-line and we held them out.
Quotes of the week
St Helens coach Nathan Brown was delighted to see his side relieve some pressure by recording their first home win of the season.
Saints thrashed Wakefield 52-18 at Langtree Park on Friday night, Jonny Lomax scoring 28 points as the hosts ran in a total of nine tries.
After a slow start to the campaign, with just two wins in the opening five games, Saints have recorded back-to-back victories to kick-start Brown's tenure at the club.
"It's great to get the monkey off the back. It's been a slow start at home, but hopefully now we can go on and give the fans plenty more to cheer about," Brown said.
"I thought we started off thinking it was going to be an easy night and that doing okay would be enough.
"But when it really mattered we did well. Just after half-time they had 34 tackles in a row on our try-line and we held them out. That was really good."
Lomax further cemented his place at full-back by claiming his second hat-trick of the season and Brown expects the 22-year-old to keep going from strength-to-strength.
Brown added: "He did well, he is doing very well and is only going to keep improving. He has got all the attributes to play that position very well."
Wakefield coach Richard Agar found plenty of positives in the Wildcats' display despite the lopsided scoreline.
He said: "I was really pleased. That probably sounds odd for a coach whose charges have let in 50 points but our effort, spirit and commitment were tremendous.
"At the end of the day the scoreline blew out in the last 15-20 minutes and a lot of class from the other team told on the scoreline at the end of the day.
"But with a depleted side, I think every one of our players can look themselves in the eye and say they have given their all."
