Cunningham: Saints lucky to draw

St Helens’ head coach Keiron Cunningham blasted his team’s attitude after seeing them blow a 14-0 lead at home to Huddersfield on Friday.

Two tries from Theo Fages and one by Adam Swift put Saints in control of the game, but the Giants fought back to take a deserved point.

Danny Brough had a chance to secure victory for the visitors, but missed a difficult conversion attempt from the touchline.

“The mentality of the players was really weak in that second-half – they thought the job was done in the first-half,” said Cunningham.

“The game should have been killed off after half-time. That should have been a 40-point ballgame, no problem at all.

“But we just weren’t good enough or disciplined enough and were lucky to get the draw in the end. We came out with a point but it feels like a loss.

“I say it to the group all the time, the team that usually beats us is the one looking back in the mirror.”
