First Utility Super League: Nathan Brown reflects on St Helens' win at Bradford Bulls
Louie McCarthy has got better and better this last three weeks since coming back from a set-back and Mose Masoe's contribution was better, plus all the youngsters had a real impact on how we attack and how we defend.
Quotes of the week
Nathan Brown is delighted that so many of his players are reaching top form, as St Helens moved back to within a point of the Super League leaders Leeds by pummelling Bradford 50-0.
Brown said: "We had some people who I thought had their best games for a while and on the back of their efforts it brought Robes (hooker James Roby) into the game.
"He was superior, I felt, to anyone else on the field and that comes off the back of people working with him.
"We had about six kids on the field who have played only ten, 15 or 20 Super League games so the guys should feel really happy.
"Sia (Soliola) was outstanding and he has a big effect on how our team performs - he had a great impact.
"Louie McCarthy has got better and better this last three weeks since coming back from a set-back and Mose Masoe's contribution was better, plus all the youngsters had a real impact on how we attack and how we defend.
"We came here today after they had had two great wins against good teams and we had to work hard to get to where we did.
"They were disrupted a bit by losing Luke Gale but it still wasn't handed to us."
In addition to the late loss of playmaker Gale, the Bulls were also light in the forwards after Manase Manuokafoa's comeback was put on hold for another week.
Bradford boss Francis Cummins pointed to those facts, saying: "We had two players pull out after our final training session.
"We started well but then gave them too much cheap ball and you cannot afford to do that against a side like St Helens.
"After that we went into free-fall a little."
