Rugby League: Anderson Hails 'Sunshine' Saints after Hull Victory


Byline: BY WAYNE GARDINER

Hull 0 St Helens..............46

ST HELENS coach Daniel Anderson admitted his side were enjoying their 'moment in the sun' after a 46-0 win over Hull at the KC Stadium.

The engage Super League leaders ran in eight tries as they extended their winning start to the season to eight games.

"It was very much a team performance," Anderson said. "We're working very hard for each other and we're putting it in at training and credit goes to players and the staff. We're having a bit of a moment in the sun with health, form and playing well. We'll look to ride the momentum and keep working hard."

Anderson also moved quickly to dispel any fears over the fitness of captain Paul Sculthorpe, who missed the end of last season owing to knee surgery and also missed out tonight.

"Paul was going to play tonight," Anderson said of the Great Britain captain.

"After having surgery in the offseason he has trained and played for six or seven weeks now, and what happens when you play is you don't get to keep the strengthening component that he did in the off-season.

"He misses tonight and he misses next week (against Doncas-ter) and he'll go back to rehab and strengthen his knee.

"It was an abject performance," said Kear. "It has been a very long 80 minutes for everyone involved with the Black and Whites.

"I think we all need to look at ourselves, the coaching staff and players. We need to have a serious examination of all aspects of our preparation and more importantly our performance because it was pitiful.

"The people I feel the most sorry for obviously are the spectators who have paid good money to come here and we haven't given them the effort and commitment that they deserve."

Kear also admitted that he has referred Saints' inclusion of Paul Wellens in their starting line-up to the Rugby Football League.

The full-back suffered a fractured cheekbone in last week's game against Bradford and was not named in Anderson's pre-match squads as a result. …
