first_imgKEIRON Cunningham praised Saints “absolutely brilliant” performance as they edged closer to Old Trafford.They beat Castleford 41-0 at Langtree Park last night to progress into the Semi Finals – and get ClubCall.“We were absolutely brilliant and I suppose you couldn’t have asked for any better,” he said. “All you ask as coaches is for effort and attitude and we got that in abundance tonight.“We toughed it out last week and it was only when we lost and looked back we thought it was a bit of a win really. We were good as a team for last week’s experience and it put us in a play-off mentality.“We saw the good things we did in that game with one in the middle missing and with a full acquisition on the field we knew we would be in with a good shot. We needed to work hard for 80 minutes and that is what we did.”He continued: “I thought Jordan Turner was outstanding . To do what he has done out of position is superb and he is a real leader for us. He was one of the difference makers.“Robes (James Roby) has been outstanding for the full season. I’m not a fan of stats but in the last three weeks; there isn’t a player in the world that can do what he does and still perform. There is not a nine in the world that can come close to him in that regard.“He is right up there with the top three in the world.”Keiron also paid tribute to the team spirit at the club.“It’s impressive,” he continued. “I am a big believer in it and trying to push it. You saw at the end of the game that team spirit as there was no need for the likes of Roby and Louie to chase back. That is what great sides do.“You fight until the last minute and you get your just rewards for it.“In the end, we have been the most consistent team this year and the guys deserved where they are tonight. And you can see we haven’t stuttered today.”last_img read more
