SAINTS chairman Eamonn McManus has thanked the many loyal fans who made the trip to Castleford to get behind the team and watch the crucial 40-24 victory.

McManus, who last week urged fans to stick with the under-fire team despite a “sub par” performance agaionst Hull KR, said it was “heart warming” to see so many fans make the trip.

He said: “There is no doubt their support lifted the team in the second half when they made a comeback that was full of spirit and character.

“The rest of the season will require more ‘backs to the wall’ performances from the team - particularly following the news that our talisman, James Roby, will be missing for the rest of the regular season.

“There is no doubt the continuing support of the fans can lift the team to the play-offs when we will have key players back and be in a much stronger position to reach the Grand Final.”
