COMMENT - Saints riding on upward curve

SAINTS fans will no doubt be relieved that the team have finally broken this season’s Langtree Park hoodoo - and in emphatic style!

The boys in the red vee have shown a marked improvement in the last two weeks, first beating Warrington away and then consolidating that with a crushing home win over Wakefield.

That’s important, because if Saints can maintain their upward curve it could ultimately lead them to getting back amongst the honours this year.

They will have to do without influential hooker James Roby for some time now though.

How they cope without him could well shape their season.
