Nathan Brown admitted it was a case of job done after seeing St Helens return to top spot in the First Utility Super League after dispatching the London Broncos 58-16 at The Hive.
The Saints raced into a 32-6 lead inside 50 minutes, then withstood a fightback from the hosts, before running in five tries in the game's final 15 minutes to romp home.
Centre Mark Percival scored 22 points - including two tries and seven conversions - as Brown's side restored their two-point lead at the top of the Super League ladder, while for the already-relegated Broncos, it was the latest disappointment in a campaign that saw their winless run stretch to 21 games.
Brown said: "I thought for about 30 minutes we were on form and when we scored just after half-time I thought it would be a blow-out.
"But credit to London - I thought their effort was outstanding and they hung in there. In fact, considering the position they are in, I thought their attitude was excellent.
"I'm still pretty happy with the result overall. I wanted an improvement from last week and I think I got that, and some of our tries showed what we can do as a side."
London coach Joey Grima was pleased after an improved performance from the 72-12 drubbing by Warrington last week, saying: "There was a clear difference in effort today from last week.
"Yes, we were still beaten heavily, but I could not question the work the players put in.
"We gave it a go and I think it was a case of us running out of gas as much as anything else.
"I thought St Helens' game management was magnificent and they kept us on the back foot a lot of the time.
"But I asked for enthusiasm from the players and I got a lot of it."
