St Helens coach Keiron Cunningham is hoping their luck will change after seeing his side concede try related penalties in successive weeks.
The latest, an eight-point try in Friday’s 24-14 defeat to Hull, sent Saints to their third successive defeat.
That came after the previous week saw a penalty conceded against Wakefield, both given by Phil Bentham.
He said: “Two weeks in a row we’ve got these against us off Phil, I think we have been a little bit unfortunate with certain calls, but you can’t cry over spilt milk.
“You’ve got to roll with the punches and ride them waves when you can.
“At the minute we’re just not getting many calls but it’ll turn around and even itself out through the year, it’s just unfortunate we’ve had a few back-to-back.
“They are tough calls for us to take but we’ll brush ourselves off and go again, and we’re going to keep competing hard and your luck does change.”
St Helens travel to Perpignan to face Catalans Dragons this weekend.
