SAINTS caretaker boss Mike Rush has hailed his side’s first half performance on Friday as the best during his tenure.

He said: “We played our best opening 30 minutes rugby since Keiron Cunningham and I took overs the coaching reins towards the end of March but I don’t know whether we then switched off and allowed Rovers back into the game.

“We were guilty of making a couple of errors and gift-wrapped one of their tries by dropping the ball.

“Apart from our performance against Wigan at the Etihad Stadium, our defence has been good until tonight but we will now have to address it again in training”.
