Super League: Nathan Brown critical after St Helens win at Wakefield
I just thought we let ourselves down in some really small areas of the game and that's what I was most disappointed with. To come to their home ground and win like we did is pleasing but we need to be a lot better than that going forward.

St Helens coach Nathan Brown criticised his side's performance despite seeing them stretch their winning run to five matches with a 26-12 victory at Wakefield.
Anthony Laffranchi, Adam Swift, Sia Soliola, Jonny Lomax and Lance Hohaia all scored tries for Saints, who have hit form at the right time of the season with the Super League play-offs on the horizon.
"We did some decent stuff and some stuff at the opposite end of the scale," said Brown.
"We just weren't quite consistent enough today, I didn't think. We put ourselves in a good position early on but then made a lot of errors that were just poor attention to detail.
"We never seemed to get flowing and they were probably a bit similar at times themselves.
"I just thought we let ourselves down in some really small areas of the game and that's what I was most disappointed with.
"To come to their home ground and win like we did is pleasing but we need to be a lot better than that going forward.
"Playing well is the key and coming into the play-offs, winning and playing well is a good way to go into them."
Wakefield's slim hopes of qualifying for the play-offs were ended on Friday but coach Richard Agar refuted the suggestion that was a key factor for their performance.
"No, not at all. It was probably symptomatic of the way we've played for the last month," he said.
"I don't think being in or out of the play-offs made too much difference.
"Our attitude to compete was okay; I thought we controlled a lot of tackles during the course of the game but we sound like a broken record.
"Whenever we're making fundamental errors like we are making then it's going to be hard on ourselves."Super League. Click here to bet.
