NATHAN Brown is hoping his side can take the good things out of the defeat to Huddersfield and kick on over the next month.Saints face the teams around them on the Super League ladder and that means every point is vital if they want to remain in the Play Off hunt.“We face the teams that are around the same points as us,” Brown said. “They have gone through similar situations as us with form, or lack of it, and bad luck. These games are important for numbers of reasons as if you are within a point of a team they become big contests when you play them for where your eventual position can be.“We need to play well in them and we can take out of the Huddersfield game the things that were good and improve on the things that were not so good.”He continued: “In the earlier part of the year Bradford gained some good scalps and have players who are really effective.“Jarod Sammut is very dangerous. When the ball comes to him he will do things no one expects. It just comes to him and he can be hard to handle. We need to be honest in defence, because if we’re not he will react.”Saints will be missing Ade Gardner through concussion whilst Anthony Laffranchi is also due to sit out the next couple of weeks.“We need to be careful with Ade,” Brown added. “Your head and neck are areas that you need to be 100 per cent about. He was not in a very good way after the game. I’d be very surprised if he is available and in any case I wouldn’t be doing him a duty of care to put him in that situation.“Anthony Walker is likely to be back around the Salford match and Gary Wheeler could be the week after that. They are slowly getting ready.“Jonny Lomax is getting close too. He contributed in two team sessions last week and we’ll have a better idea after another field session. He’s in a similar position to James Roby though, after all this pain you want to make sure when he comes back he stays back.“We looked better with Roby in the team on Monday, whilst having a regulation half back helped too.“We used our tenth half back combination – but we had a regulation half back and a regulation hooker and that showed in our game. I thought at times we looked quite good, but other times we didn’t and on some other occasions their defence had to work hard to stop us.“I didn’t think there was much in the game. They got a lucky try – a very questionable one – but when you are not winning you don’t get those ones. We had one or two poor lapses in defence and they made us pay. It was a four tries to three game and it was not that they slackened off. I thought we defended our way back into the contest.“If Gareth O’Brien had not appeared you would not have seen that performance. I thought Jordan Turner contributed quite positively to playing six and he’s been one of our best players this year. He also scored and nearly scored two or three more. He has a good skillset and has a good long term future at the club.“We’d like to stick with that combination. I know we have only got Gaz for an initial month – but if Warrington stay fit and healthy and they don’t need him we will then look at the future.“There was a lot more good in that match than what a lot of people saw and I saw a lot of good signs. One of these was with three minutes to go when Huddersfield made a break and we had nine St Helens players in the picture.“That shows urgency and keenness in the team and that is good, but we need to be more consistent.”Tickets for Sunday’s match are now on sale from the Ticket Office at Langtree Park, by calling 01744 455 052 or by logging on here.You can also take advantage of our 5-Star ticket offer – paying for five and getting one free.
SATURDAY sees two of Rugby League’s most successful clubs in the history of the sport go head-to-head at Headingley Carnegie Stadium (2.30pm) when Leeds Rhinos do battle against St Helens in the Tetley’s Challenge Cup fifth round.Since the turn of the millennium, Rugby League’s oldest and most prestigious competition has been dominated by the Rhinos and Saints, with 12 out of the 14 finals since 2000 being attended by one of the two.Last year’s final between Wigan Warriors and Hull FC was just the second time since 2000 that neither Leeds nor Saints played at the showcase event, though both teams are looking to put that right by overcoming the other and take one step closer to Wembley by reaching this year’s quarter-finals.In years gone by there have been many enthralling battles between these two household Rugby League names, in all competitions.2007 saw an epic tussle between the Rhinos and the Saints in a battle to become the best team in the land. St Helens had already lifted the Challenge Cup – the second of three consecutive tournament wins between 2006 and 2008 – and were on the lookout for a second double in as any years.The then-defending Super League champions squeezed past the Rhinos in a thriller during the 2007 play-offs, as Saints’ two-point victory saw them reach the Grand Final leaving Leeds the task of beating Wigan Warriors if they wanted to reach Old Trafford and thwart Saints’ efforts to win an unprecedented consecutive domestic double.The Rhinos duly defeated the Warriors 36-6 and proceeded to gain their revenge in the Grand Final, beating St Helens 33-6 – in the process holding Saints to a scoreless second half – to become 2007 Super League champions, beginning a run of six Super League Grand Final triumphs in seven years.The Rhinos have not enjoyed quite the same success in chasing Challenge Cup glory since the turn of the millennium, however. 1999 was the club’s last triumph, despite reaching the final six times since then.St Helens have lifted the trophy 12 times in their history – seven of those coming since 1996 – and will be looking to continue the Rhinos’ 14-year search for another Wembley win when the pair meet in West Yorkshire on Saturday.Despite each club’s success throughout the beginning of the 21st century, the pair have not met in a Challenge Cup final since 1978, when 96,000 fans crammed into Wembley Stadium to witness Leeds edge past the Saints 14-12.Previous Challenge Cup Meetings:2010 (Semi-Final) Leeds 32 St Helens 28 (at Galpharm Stadium, Huddersfield)2009 (Round 4) Leeds 18 St Helens 222008 (Semi-Final) Leeds 16 St Helens 26 (at Galpharm Stadium, Huddersfield)2004 (Round 5) St Helens 24 Leeds 142003 (Semi-Final) Leeds 33 St Helens 26 (after extra-time) (at McAlpine Stadium, Huddersfield)2002 (Semi-Final) Leeds 16 St Helens 42 (at JJB Stadium, Wigan)2001 (Semi-Final) Leeds 22 St Helens 27 (at JJB Stadium, Wigan)2000 (Round 5) Leeds 26 St Helens 201999 (Round 5) Leeds 24 St Helens 161994 (Semi-Final) Leeds 20 St Helens 8 (at Central Park, Wigan)1992 (Round 2) Leeds 12 St Helens 321983 (Round 2) Leeds 13 St Helens 231978 (FINAL) Leeds 14 St Helens 12 (at Wembley Stadium)1977 (Semi-Final) Leeds 7 St Helens 2 (at Central Park, Wigan)1972 (FINAL) Leeds 13 St Helens 16 (at Wembley Stadium)1971 (Round 2) Leeds 4 St Helens 01930 (Round 2) Leeds 5 St Helens 181911 (Round 2) St Helens 6 Leeds 112014 Meeting:St Helens 14, Leeds 10 (SLR7, 28/3/14)Club Milestones:Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook needs one appearance to reach 100 for St Helens.‘LMS’ made his Saints debut in a 16-16 draw with Wigan at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium on 12 February, 2011.Two appearances will also see him reach a total of 200 for his career – having played 97 games for previous club Harlequins (2006-2010) and twice for England (2008-2009).Challenge Cup Milestones:Paul Wellens – 10 points away from 150 (140 for St Helens, 2001-2002, 2004-2007 & 2009-2013)Try-Scoring Runs:Tommy Makinson (1-2-1-2-2-1-2-1) has scored tries in the Saints’ last eight games.First Utility Super League Leading Scorers:Tries:1.
