Woolf gives latest on Lomax injury as he reveals what won the game against Warrington

St Helens further underlined their champion credentials in tonight’s blockbuster 24-14 victory over rivals Warrington.

Saints had been leading for most of the game, weathering a Warrington storm before dealing the hammer blow in the second-half.

And, Saints head coach Kristian Woolf believed it was a run out that his team needed.

“It was a really good game of footy, both teams had their moments,” Woolf said.

“We didn’t really finish that first-half really well like not finding touch with a penalty, but they’ve got some really class players and their 1, 6 and 9 are as good as anyone in the competition.

“We took our opportunities when we found them and defended superbly which helped us get over the line.

“We needed this high intensity game and we will take a lot out of that and take a lot of confidence.

“We need that sort of practice as the play-offs get nearer, but I won’t be surprised if we come across them in the play-offs.”

Woolf did have some positive news on the injury front.

“Jonny Lomax’s injury isn’t as bad as what we were all expecting and readying ourselves for.

“We expected the worst but we got some really positive news; he’ll only be out for about four weeks.”
